There are not many vegan options in a city of 22 million. La Pitahaya Vegana does an excellent job of fusing Mexican and vegan cuisine. Small and street side with attentive servers this place executes vegan very well.More

This place has a good reputation for a reason. We went twice and probably could’ve kept going back if we didn’t have restaurant FOMO. The pink tortillas are no gimmick. The food is incredible. Favorites: Tacos, nachos, breakfast burrito!

We enjoyed the food, although the portions are a bit small for the price. I ordered the waffles and had to pay an unbelievable 80 pesos extra for gluten free!! I've traveled in many countries and I've never eaten in a place that charges so...much extra for gluten free options. The staff are friendly and the food is delicious but I think it would be better if they didn't exploit people who are gluten intolerance.More

The food is delicious. But there must be a mistake on TripAdvisor because this is not a cheap restaurant. three small, but delicious, tacos cost 160 pesos. A small bottle of kombucha Costa 95 pesos - that's more than what you'd pay in most restaurants...in London. I guess it's a nice place for foreign tourists with money to spend.More

Very gracious service, delicious healthy vegan food, elegant presentation, outdoor seating. The “tres tacos” is a fun deal because you get to pick which three you want. I believe the entire menu is gluten-free. Everything I’ve had so far has been super tasty, and the...service consistently friendly.More

My husband and I came to CDMX on our honeymoon and were somewhat concerned about finding dining options for me, a vegan with celiac disease. Before our trip, I wrote to about ten different vegan restaurants and cafes in the city in Spanish and asked...if it would be safe for me to eat at each place. The owner of La Pitahaya Vegana took the time to reply and answer all of my questions thoroughly. Reassured, I planned for us to make a trip there for lunch on our first day. My husband is an omnivore, but he was so happy that I had a safe place to eat, and he loved the food almost as much as I did, so we ate there four times in a week. The staff were all gracious and kindly answered by questions about ingredients and preparation in Spanish, and some of them also had great English. This place is a treasure for people with special dining needs! Now, on to the food. We loved the colorful, slightly tangy beet-infused corn tortillas, which were part of nearly everything that we ate. The guacamole is very lovely; it is moderately limey, has black sesame seeds swirled in, and is served with multicolored totopos. On one visit, I had an incredibly delicious plate of enfrijoladas with a peanut-based tomato-y mole and a filling of plantains and black beans (I added the tasty garbanzo chorizo). It was super duper tasty, and I asked a zillion questions about the beans to make sure that they weren’t cross contaminated, but I think that the peanuts were cross contaminated and that meal made me celiac sick. If you don’t have severe gluten intolerance, do yourself a favor and get this dish, because it’s so yummy! On other visits, I stuck with the tacos, and never had celiac issues. The tofu machaca, mushroom al pastor, curry potato, and nopalitos tacos were so delicately seasoned and very flavorful. My husband could be more adventurous than me, and he heartily enjoyed his various enchiladas rosas with potato purée, enfrijoladas, and tacos. He preferred the enchiladas but loved the other stuff, too. We enjoyed the light, not overly sugary, refreshing natural sodas, and the very intensely vanilla-imbued almond flan was also a delight. The ice cream was great, too. Dining inside is pleasant and serene - the wood accents and quirky geometric wall planters of succulents brighten the modern interior, which is full of light from the big windows. We dined on the patio on a cool evening and loved people-watching. The clientele is mostly young and hip, and often you will hear English and other languages spoken by the cosmopolitan tourist crowd. The music varies between modern rock and indie when the younger staff is working and more tried-and-true romantic ballads and older pop music at other times. This area of Roma has a lot of great street art, pulquerias, a craft beer shop, boutiques, galleries, etc., so La Pitahaya makes a great place to start your afternoon or evening of fun. We will gladly go back on our next trip to CDMX!More

Amazing food! Hands down one of the best food I’ve ever eaten in my life. It was amazing that it was vegan, too! I wish there is a La Pitahaya close to my home. I would eat this food every day. Everything we ordered was...perfectly spiced and cooked. My friend and I ordered the tamale, chicharrón de queso (was like an Indian dosa), mushroom tacos, cauliflower tacos, enchiladas, and the flan. We ate every single bite of everything and spooned every drop of salsa. I almost licked my plate. The green sauce on the table was divine. I must have eaten half of the container of green sauce on the table. I love, love, love everything. My tastebuds are in heaven right now. I’m in Mexico City for a few days. I’ll try to come back here multiple times for sure.More

A very tiny place, no frills. Overflow seating is outside, which can be cool in winter. Seems to be women-run. The main menu is a choice of different vegan tacos. You choose any 3. It is quite filling to have all 3 as the tacos...are mounded high. The combinations are unique, crunchy and soft, sweet and tangy. We left quite full. The chai tea was delicious, too.More
