Actor Danny Trejo Opens Vegan-Friendly Taco Restaurant!

Danny Trejo is known for his iconic roles in films such as From Dusk Till Dawn, Reindeer Games, Con Air, Machete, and more. 

Now the actor is planning to have the soft opening for his new vegan-friendly taco restaurant next week. It will be located in the neighborhood of Miracle Mile in Los Angeles, called "Trejo's Tacos" with a very appropriate logo. The menu itself was crafted by chef Daniel Mattern, and features many options that will appeal to all types of diners. Trejo stated:

"We have 10 different tacos. It’s just stuff that everybody likes. Here, we wanted to include everybody, so we have a great vegan menu and gluten-free menu."

And what are some of the plant-based options available? Organic kale salads, mung bean tortillas, vegan tacos, quinoa and brown rice bowls, house-made salsas, fried avocado, and black pepper tofu. The menu will also feature beverages such as aguas frescas, horchata and kombucha on tap, as well as Trejo's own brewed beer Cerveca, and his South American coffee blend that is roasted locally.

Trejo also stated that no food would be kept overnight, and any leftovers will be donated to a local homeless shelter when the restaurant closes. 

Although this location will just be opening up, there are already plans for a second one in Hollywood, as well as Trejo's own ice cream sandwich line, which hopefully will also have vegan options!
