Tacos, burritos, and quesadillas are all common dishes available at several restaurants in New York City and the United States. Most of these are meat-based, but in New York, there are plenty of vegan places, and so it was extra fun to try traditional dishes such as these – But 100% vegan.
The restaurant we went to is called V Spot and below you can read more about the different dishes and how they tasted. Our little food jury in New York consists of me, my girlfriend and her sister.
Soft tacos bread made of corn. Inside seitan, lettuce, avocado, red beans and red and green salsa. Very similar to a regular taco and most would not feel any particular difference.
It was moderately hot and gets 4 out of 5 stars.
V spot’s vegan burrito was a worthy winner in the battle for vegan dishes from Latin America. Tasty and filling. As with tacos, it was very much like a regular burrito with meat. Their vegan burritos contain seitan, guacamole, salad, red beans and vegan cheese.
Really good burrito which gets 5 out of 5 stars.
Quesadillas are a personal favorite that I eat on a regular basis, both at home and at the restaurant. Therefore it was especially exciting to try a vegan variant. These were good, but not the tastiest I’ve had quesadillas.
It was not anything wrong with them, but in the rating, I would put 3 out of 5.
As a side dish, we ordered a large plate with avocado fries, which are breaded chunks of avocado. For there had to be a Picante sauce with mayo and lime. A tasty appetizer/side dish which was actually more like snacks than a meal.
More on V Spot Organic
V Spot Organic opened its doors back in 2008. The founder named Danny Carabano and together he runs the V spot with his brother Alex Carabano and friend Steven Simicich. The restaurant is now in three places. First, the restaurant is located on the Park Slope.
The restaurant we ate at opened in 2015 and is located in the East Village at 12 St. Marks Place. A nice restaurant with beautiful decor and cozy atmosphere. In connection with the opening also extended menu.
In 2016 they opened up his third restaurant, located at 241 E 24th St.
Address: 12 St. Marks Place, East Village.
In the overall rating, I give the restaurant 4 out of 5. The food was cooked on order, and therefore took a while before it came out. The staff was friendly, and the food tasted good. In short, a successful restaurant experience.
The only negative I can think of is the price. The food is very simple, and the portions are not excessive. A couple of dollars less per dish would have been more reasonable. However, it’s not expensive, but also not inexpensive.
