These tacos are so yummy you won’t miss the meat!
What to wear: Wynwood casual, so you can walk off the guac after!
What to expect: This cheerful, brightly colored, and authentically Mexican spot is the right place to refuel during Art Walk or a shopping expedition. Every detail is uniquely Mexican, from the handpainted murals to the traditional cloth napkins. After serving as Executive Chef at a restaurant in Mexico City and then opening his first Charly’s Vegan Tacos “CVT” location in Tulum, Chef Charly is excited to bring his plant-based Mexican concept to the US.
The Menu: The menu features an evolving selection of plant based dishes and cocktails inspired by the Mexican Caribbean. The menu includes Antojitos (appetizers), Burritos, Los Tacos, and Bowls. Don’t forget to try one of their handmade margaritas or sangrias!
What to order: Our favorite appetizer was the Nachos Machos, drizzled with spicy chipotle leek cheese, homemade pickled jalapenos, mashed organic beans, guacamole, grilled mushrooms, and topped with Charly’s signature cream.
We also loved the Ceviche, an artful array of oyster mushrooms and sliced avocado with sunflower seeds, cilantro sprouts, and a tangy garlic aioli.
However, Charly’s signature is the taco selection, with both “Carne sin Carne” (meat without meat) and “De La Tierra” (from the land) options. We recommend the Taco Love Trio so that you can try three at once!
How to score a table: This casual eatery welcomes walk-ins! If it isn’t too hot outside, you can enjoy your tacos al fresco on one of the picnic tables outside. Buen provecho!
