Penelope's Vegan Taqueria
Just off the Chicago Brown Line stop in River North is an immediately noticeable bright pink Mexican spot covered in a collage of painted flowers. What’s not immediately noticeable is that all of the food at Penelope’s is vegan. They offer a variety of Mexican staples from burritos to chilaquiles, but our favorites are the Beyond Meat asada tacos, and the enchiladas. These crisp, rolled tortillas come loaded with spiced potatoes, and are topped with spicy red salsa and smooth vegan sour cream. Come in for a relaxed solo bite or a group dinner that will make even your most meat-centric friend second guess the vegan-ness of it all.
