Santa Barbara vegans have a new cause for celebration!
A new vegan spot set to deliver “health-conscious Mexican food“, according to its owner Tyler Beerman, is set open in Santa Barbara.
The restaurant is called Vegan Green Go and will be located on upper State Street. The hot new vegan eatery is described as
a vegan quick-service restaurant ready to serve the best Mexican food with a health conscious approach.
People can choose from a menu that includes bowls, burritos, nachos, or tacos. All of them come with a wide selection of meatless protein and fixings. The inspiration behind this new place is the street food, since everything is set to be made from scratch in-house, including the delicious beverages, such as lemonades and rice-hemp milk horchata.
As noted by Plant-Based News, all the proteins are exclusively from vegan meats, and this includes soy-based products and jackfruit. All the menu will be vegan, plant-based, and non-GMO.
“The response has been really good,” said Beerman about his new business venture into the world of vegan cuisine. “It’s interesting that people seek out vegan food spots when they come here from out of town.” Beerman himself became a vegan very recently and his idea was to create a place that would appeal to omnivores.
Vegan Green Go is not the only vegan business for Beerman. He is also behind Conscious Kombucha based in Carpinteria, where they make the famous sweetened fermented teas and distribute them by the barrel to regional coffee shops, restaurants, and major stores such as Whole Foods. Conscious Kombucha would also be part of the menu at Vegan Green Go.
