There is so much to love about this vibrant book which captures the spirit and flavors of the popular women-owned vegan restaurant in Los Angeles. From Pozole Rojo to Sopa Azteca, Sweet Corn Tamales to Crispy Potato Tacos, there are delicious Mexican recipes to try on every colorful page. I’m especially excited about the bebidas section, with stellar margaritas, cocktails, and agua frescas.

Fan favorite recipes and brand-new classics from this Los Angeles–based vegan Mexican eatery for discerning cooks of any level.

Women-owned and 100% plant-based, Sugar Taco is an LA go-to for Mexican food, for good reason. Founders Jayde Nicole and Nia Gatica Campos, along with chef Alan Campos, launched Sugar Taco in 2019 with a vision for a women-owned business that championed traditional dishes in an eco-conscious and animal-friendly way. They ditched meat and dairy for juicy jackfruit, perfectly seasoned seitan, house-made queso, and more, and then paired this on-trend menu with vibrant Dia de Muertos–inspired decor. The restaurant has been thriving ever since, with two locations and a third in the works.

Sugar Taco at Home makes it possible for readers to bring the restaurant experience home. From Sugar Taco Carne Asada and meaty Mushroom Enchiladas Verdes to Tofu Chilaquiles and a deluxe Tres Leches Cake, this book is essential for regulars of the LA restaurant, as well as vegans, vegetarians, and flexitarians craving easy, homemade Mexican flavors.
