Watch out Eastside, Silverlake has a new kid in town! Diablo Taco is open for business and very vegan friendly! Located right on Sunset Blvd., they tote themselves as an “urban taco fabricator and crafter of fine micheladas” and that they are! The menu, written in chalk on the wall, changes frequently and always includes plenty of vegan options which are clearly marked
When you arrive at the restaurant, you enter one room where you order at a bar and are given a number and you head into a second room lined with booths and has a long communal table down the center.
There are all sorts of really original menu items! I went with a few friends who are all meat-eaters and it was so nice to go to a restaurant where we all had plenty of options. I ordered the heirloom radish salad, a couple Brentwood corn picadillo tacos, and russet potato skins with diablo ketchup and green jalepeno sauce.
Um… these tacos were so good I immediately ran over to the counter to order two more lol! Corn, peppers, black truffles oh my!
Here I am with my good friend and Diablo Taco owner Summer Stearns (ps so nice to see a strong, smart woman in the restaurant biz!):
We ended our night with some homemade watermelon and cucumber popsicles sprinkled with chili!
Bottom line: I am a big fan of this place! The ambiance is awesome, the food fabulous, and the location is easy! Definitely my new favorite spot in town!
