Take a little more transit and eat a little less meat — two things you can do to reduce your impact on the environment. In this installment of Meatless Mondays with Metro, let’s take a trip to Downey and see what’s cooking at Guacamaya Oasis.
Guacamaya Oasis opened just a few months ago. With an array of made-daily agua frescas, Mexican food, salads and juices, there are no shortage of offerings for customers.
The Soy Chorizo Torta is a favorite. The traditional Mexican sandwich contains home-style beans, house salsa, cheese, tomato, cabbage, pickled onion and marinated soy chorizo. Feel free to ask for no cheese if you are a full-blown vegan.
If there is any food that I cannot live without, it would certainly have to be ceviche. Since I went vegan over a year ago I have been on the frivolous pursuit for the best vegan ceviche in Los Angeles – and Guacamaya has a contender! It includes diced cauliflower, pico de gallo, cilantro, lime juice and plenty of spices. The ceviche is seasonal, so hurry and try it before it’s gone
