Black Rican Vegan
While Black Rican Vegan is delivery-only, it’s still one of the best places not just for vegan comida puertorriqueño in New York, but Puerto Rican food in general. Puerto Rican owner and chef Lyana Blount makes a bunch of vegan versions of classics like pernil (slow-roasted marinated pork, but made with jackfruit here), oxtail and rice aka ”moxtail,” pastelon (beefless lasagna), flancocho (a two-story flan and chocolate cake combo), and asopao (chicken and rice soup) using mushrooms or homemade seitan. Based out of Morris Heights in the Bronx, Black Rican Vegan delivers throughout the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens on the weekends.
