Hello again, Mexico City!

I moved to Mexico City (again) almost a month ago.

I'd complain about how I dislike living where I am right now, but you're here to see food, right?

A day after I got here, two of my friends from Tijuana and I went to a place called La buena tierra (The good earth).
Their menu looked awesome and even though it seemed very veggie friendly, it wasn't vegan friendly at all : (

I ordered a juice (the Einstein) and thought I could maybe get a pita sandwich veganized.
The waitress looked at me like I was crazy when I asked if they could leave out the chipotle dressing and sub hummus for cheese in a f*cking pita sandwich.

She didn't get at all what I was asking for, so she suggested bringing some pita, pita with za'atar and hummus (better than nothing!).

Juice menu

Einstein: Celery, beet, pineapple, orange and ginkgo biloba juice (so good!)

Don't get me wrong, I love hummus, but I bought a tub and some pita bread that week and I didn't want to eat more at a restaurant!

Anyway, it may look pretty in these pictures, but it wasn't good.
It was way too sour. I kind of fixed it with a little avocado-garlic oil, salt and pepper, hmm : )

I have a huge food porn backlog, so expect more posts : )!


  1. Looks really good! Can you recommend other more Mexican City vegan restaurants that you also found as well?

    Love ittttt!
