  1. Good roundup! I’ve eaten enchiladas at all of those places except El Mercado. I like the food at Curra’s too, but I can’t remember if we had enchiladas there. They have soyrizo in one of their dishes.

    That’s awesome that your post was published. woohoo!

  3. Hey, thanks so much for writing this article. I’ve been looking for an article like this – I love tex mex but it feels like there are so few options for vegans.

    Yay! Thanks for sharing!
