Mex-I-Can: Those Proverbial Restaurant Pics

with 2 comments


Now, here are the vegetarian tostadas (sauteed cactus and other veggies), done vegan-style by request. At most restaurants, you ask for a dish done vegan and you just get things removed, not replaced. Here, they’ve come up with delicious vegan sauce to replace the sour cream, and they’ve recently begun sprinkling soy cheese, too. Last time I went, they were charging an extra dollar for the sauce and cheese. I really don’t mind paying that–you’re getting lots of absolutely delicious food for a good price anyways. But for the record I said I’d still pay the extra dollar but I only wanted the sauce, not the cheese. I’m just not the biggest fan of soy cheese so I prefer it without it. It’s too bad I don’t have a picture of the sopes– they’re even better than the tostadas but only because sopes are the best way to eat corn I’ve ever come across.
Bottom line: go to Mex-I-Can if you’re in Hamilton Ontario. Fantastic Mexican food and thoughtful/delicious vegan options. Be careful if you’re in a huge rush, though– they cook everything to order as far as I can tell, and sometimes they get too slammed to serve you quickly.

    • Yes, it’s such a relief when restaurants know what “vegan” means! And the food is great.
