Owner Antonio — who used to be an Oakland school counselor before going vegan in 1999 and starting to experiment with meatless versions of his favorite Mexican family dishes — now has a brick-and-mortar restaurant, but his satisfying and surprisingly spicy vegan and vegetarian tamales, tacos, taquitos, and other homestyle delights are also available on a takeaway basis. Regulars eagerly wait even in the rain for this hearty fare whose faux-meat fillings make nice foils for mole sauce and eye-poppingly hot salsa. Mexican food is traditionally heavy, greasy, lardy, and meaty, but Antonio — whose integrity shines in every bite — has worked hard to make his meatless versions look, feel, and taste authentic.
