• quick bite: papacitos in brooklyn


    after a long day of traveling and getting by on only snacks, papacitos in greenpoint, brooklyn was the very first stop we made from jfk airport. i was so starving and tired i only took this single barely lit photo of my enchilada plate. papcito’s is incredibly vegan friendly and everything is clearly marked on the menu. for their filling options on tacos, enchiladas, etc, they have four vegan options: seitan, tempeh, grilled veggies, and soyrizo.

    seitan enchiladas

    i got my enchiladas with the seitan and was happy with my choice. the plate of three enchiladas also came with a side of black beans and rice which i smothered with their delicious salsa and gobbled up. my only complaint about my food was the typical overuse of daiya. nbd, i picked a bunch off and pushed it off to the corner of my plate. on my last check of their online menu i didn’t see the enchiladas offered but i swear i ate them. i don’t remember the exact cost but i think it was around $10. and, like any decent mexican restaurant they make a fine margarita. the staff was super friendly and even pretend not to notice that we came into the restaurant with all of our luggage! if you’re in the area it’s definitely worth checking out.

  • What is up with places putting WAY too much Daiya on everything. It’s an epidemic. I blame Quarrygirl!

    Looks good to me…I really like veganized Mexican dishes in general. My favourite are vegan nachos but enchiladas come in a close second.
