Dallas Mexican Restaurant Goes Vegan

El Palote removed all animal products from traditional Mexican menu.

Dallas-based Mexican restaurant El Palote recently transitioned to a fully vegan menu. Owned by vegan couple Aurelio and Lily Arias, the restaurant previously offered several vegan options and a fully vegan menu on Thursdays. El Palote now serves traditional Mexican dishes as pastries—such as pan dulce—and uses soy and plant-based ingredients to replace animal products. Aurelio went vegan after he had a heart attack nine years ago and members of the Arias family adopted a plant-based diet to support him. The couple decided to remove animal products from their restaurant in an effort to educate their community about the health benefits of veganism. “We love you as clients, but we want to take care of you,” Lily tells customers. “And … [non-vegan] food is not good for your health.”
