Veg Friendly at Taco Loco in Laguna Beach

Taco Loco is one of my favorite places to eat in Laguna Beach.  It is also one of the few places I go and get the same thing every time.  The location has been there for a while and is one of those surfer-type joints that is popular with the locals.

My vegan guy went with the Blackened Veggie Phish Burger ($6.50): spiced and blackened veggie phish served with mushrooms, guacamole, and salsa (make sure you get it with no mayo).  Of course I love this dish – it has a bit of spice and you get that fake meaty texture (if you’re into that).  My vegan guy didn’t have the same love for this dish I as do – whatever: he’s crazy.

I went with a different burger, but still wanted a small taste of the blackened phish.  Enter Blackened Veggie Phish Taco ($3.35): same phish as in the burger, but in a small soft tortilla.  It’s the perfect small bite – and a great choice for those small eaters out there.

I am not a small eater and needed a burger to go with my taco.  The Blackened Tofu and Mushroom Burger ($6) is my absolute favorite item at Taco Loco.  It’s blackened the same as the phish, but if you’re not into the fake meat, this is a wonderfully healthy way to have your burger.  Just like the phish burger, the tofu burger is served with mushrooms, guacamole, and salsa – and also say no mayo.  It comes as a taco, as well, but I like the burger a lot better.

Taco Loco has some (crazy) great hours.  In the summer, they are open really late (2am on weekends!).
