Top secret menu item at Zona Fresca that you can ask for… Grilled Veggie Taco Combo Plate! It’s totally cheap and delicious and filling, and you even get some chips with that!
It’s not on the menu, but you can ask for it, and it’s even cheaper than the meat ones, which are still under $6!
Sorry this picture is missing a taco. and some beans.
As you can probably tell, I haven’t been doing a whole lot of cooking since we moved to Fort Lauderdale. Fortunately for us, there are quite a lot of restaurants to choose from in our area, and while most of them aren’t expressly vegetarian, I’ve been able to feed myself just fine from the selections offered. We’ve been hitting up many of the mexican restaurants, and were meaning to try The Whole Enchilada again. We had been here one time last year, on an off day, when the staff was really overwhelmed. Today the service was friendly & quick and the food was good & plentiful. They have seared tofu as a protein option, which I really appreciate for variety’s sake, and both their black beans & pinto beans are vegetarian.
For $7.69 I got a massive Tostada complete with lettuce, rice, black beans, guac, seared tofu, and lots of toppings I picked up at the salsa bar. I ordered this without sour cream (and I said no cheese, but I’m not sure that it came with it?). It also came with a side of chips. So much food that I had to ask for a lid to take it home. Pretty awesome.
Also check out the Tree Hugger without the cheese for a vegan burrito! (I had this last time.)
The Whole Enchilada is located at 4115 N. Federal Hwy, Fort Lauderdale, Fl 33308. 954-561-4040.
