Mexican Resort Adopts 24-Hour Vegan Menu

Plant-based fare inspired by Mexican, French, and Italian cuisine is now on the menu at the all-inclusive Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit resort in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

All-inclusive luxury resort Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico recently launched several dedicated vegan multi-course menus available to guests at all hours of the day. In partnership with local vegan chef Miguel Batista, the resort now serves at least four plant-based gourmet dishes at their Mexican, French, and Italian restaurants. At traditional Mexican eatery Frida, guests can enjoy raw coconut ceviche with serrano chili and cucumber Aguachile, while at Italian restaurant Lucca, the featured vegan dishes include a bruschetta sampler, gluten-free penne pasta with broccoli, cauliflower and grilled Portobello, and espresso and chocolate cake with raspberry sherbet. A standout vegan option at French restaurant Piaf is the vegan nut pate with fermented cashew cheese and black pepper crust. Vegan guests also have the option of ordering from the room service menu which includes a selection of vegan cheeses, plant-based burgers, and dairy-free ice cream. Cruelty-free travel is picking up steam and resorts are increasingly partnering with chefs who are able to satisfy customer demands for plant-based options. Last year, famed vegan chef and restaurateur Matthew Kenney announced his collaboration plans with 1000-acre Kukui’ula resort in Hawaii for an all-vegan retreat series, scheduled to launch its inaugural event this May.
