Las Vegas-based vegan taco eatery Tacotarian recently debuted the “largest vegan taco in the universe” as its monthly special in honor of World Vegan Month. Measuring seven inches long by seven inches wide, the taco features a hard taco shell stuffed with French fries, beans, vegan protein of choice, pico de gallo, guacamole, vegan cheddar cheese, and crema. Tacotarian will donate 20 percent of the proceeds from sales of the giant taco to Food Not Bombs Las Vegas—an organization that provides free vegan food to low-income and homeless families. “We were inspired to do something big for World Vegan Month, and what’s bigger than the largest vegan taco in the universe?” Tacotarian co-owner Kristen Corral told VegNews. “In our minds, creating vegan food that’s fun and can spark a conversation is a great way to get people to try new things. If your friend says, ‘Hey, want to go try the largest vegan taco in the universe?’ Even if you’re not vegan you’re probably going to say, ‘Heck ya, I want to see that!’” Tacotarian—the mission of which is to “turn Vegas vegan one taco at a time”—opened its first location in Las Vegas last year and its second location is slated to open in the coming weeks.
