I'm Mexican and even though I was changing my eating habits that didn't mean I was ready to completely forgo my favorite foods. There had to be some place that had vegan options available. Enter Cafetal Quilombo to save the day! Cafetal Quilombo is in Beacon Hill next to a convenience store and a bike "church". The place is tiny, or should I say cozy? There is seating for maybe twenty or so people but this is also a cafe shop therefore is a great spot to sip a coffee, eat some food, and chill out. The employees have always been welcoming. The food menu isn't large but it is more than made up with flavor. There are tortas, tamales, rice and beans, typical Mexican staples. There are numerous tamales choices: chicken, beef, black bean, bean and cheese, and my favorite, vegetables. The vegetables is the vegan option and it chalkfull of roasted veggies spiced just right. I asked about what was used in the maza instead of lard and I was assured for the vegetable tamales they used only oil and water. I can tell you there are delicious! I can't vouch for anything else because I am so stuck on the tamales that I have yet to try anything else. I am happy I found Cafetal Quilombo so I don't have to give up tamales. <p>I was on a search for vegan tamales.
