Most Happily Rediscovered Vegetarian

El Azteca Restaurant

Sometimes love is found in the most unexpected places. For example, it seems that many folks don't realize that this kitschy East Austin eatery - known for the past four decades as a great place to get chicken mole enchiladas, big, beefy chile rellenos, and even bigger, beefier Aztec-themed calendars - would also be an ideal spot for everything from mile-high vegetarian tostadas to spicy, fresh-tasting spinach and mushroom enchiladas? Totally authentic, totally fresh, and totally affordable, El Azteca has something for strict herbivores, carnivores, and everything in between.
