Vegan Food, Siempre Sano Restaurant, Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
In my experience, it is not common to find a restaurant anywhere that advertises 100% vegan. What a wonderful surprise to find one in Puerto Morelos! Siempre Sano Restaurant (English translation is something like - healthy forever) had previously been located in a hole in the wall place elsewhere in town but they moved into this brand new building just last week and now offer a seating area also.
It is located about a block south of the main town square on Avenida Javier Rojo Gomez just a bit past the Mayan Handicrafts Artisans Market.
We have been there three times in the past week and were very pleased to see other customers there each time both eating in and carrying out. And we don't normally eat at the peak restaurant hours.
The proprietress takes a customer's order.
These three entrees featured hibiscus, cactus, mushrooms, and lots of other tasty non-animal foods.
And these three entrees - potatoes in salsa verde, vegan chorizo, and a zucchini/squash medley.
So, with the fixed plate meal you get a fruit drink, soup, rice, beans, tortillas, and three entrees from among the maybe 10 choices. And the cost? 60 pesos each (about $4.60 USD). And it was ¡EXCELLENTE!
