This vegan Latin American restaurant in Astoria (which also is a great spot for weekend drag brunch) serves great plant-based arepas, ceviches made with hearts of palm, burgers, and flautas. You’ll also notice lots of shark references across the restaurant - both on the menu (“Save the Sharks Nachos″) and their social media - to raise awareness of the state of the oceans. Sharks aside, the cheddar empanada is a hot pocket packed with creamy tofu cheese and cilantro aioli, which we definitely recommend you try out.
