Mexican gourmet restaurant Flacos opens this week, serving delicious, spicy, plant-based food.

Later this week, Flacos restaurant opens in Berkeley, Calif., offering East Bay dwellers flavorful, organic, vegan fare. The eatery bills itself as serving "unique, vegetarian Mexican food," and boasts an impressive menu, offering everything from Soyrizo and veggie-filled chalupas to meat-free chicken taquitos covered in fresh avocado salsa. While Flacos storefront is brand-new, the business has been in operation since 2001, when owner Antonio Magana began selling Flacos-branded vegan Mexican food at the Berkeley Farmers' Market.
