Southern California is home to a multitude of taco stands. What makes Vegatinos unique is their commitment to fresh authentic flavor, a 100% based vegan menu AND they offer an incentive for Eco-conscious customers in the form of a 10%  discount when you bring your own food container.

These customers happily seized on the opportunity to take the eatery up on this win-win offer.

So far I have been there several times but only tried the Tacos Al Pastor.

They really nailed the texture here. Biting in to one of these is wickedly satisfying. The flavor  is just as good,  they marinate these in a mouth watering adobo pineapple sauce.

I love all of the different salsas they have to offer. My favorite is this bright orangey-red one. It has a smoky type aftertaste and is SUPER spicy.

TUK Vegan Saddle Shoes

As a vegan it can be challenging to indulge my vintage fashion obsession without going against some of my beliefs.  I also make an effort to be a conscious shopper  and avoid buying most things new because of the way people in underdeveloped countries are exploited to make these products and also because of the destructive environmental impact that the manufacturing of these goods can wreak on Mother Earth.

There is currently a growing number of businesses worldwide that are offering products that have been made by people being paid fair wages, are gentle on the environment AND are vegan. However my fashion tastes are so specific that it is tough to find clothes or shoes that fit my style. Don’t get me wrong, I have found some awesome products and have even recommended some of them  on this blog (to read more about these items click here) but overall I buy second hand clothing, shoes and accessories.

Recently I found these awesome TUK saddle shoes at a Goodwill. I have been resisting for years buying saddle shoes from Payless. They are a much sleeker style than these TUK ones  and way more authenentic to the vintage style, but I  decided to wait it out and see if I could find  pair second hand or manufactured by  a sustainable brand rather than hand out my hard earned dough to a soulless corporation. I felt quite lucky finding these as this particular style has been discontinued for some time now. The icing on the cake is that that they are vegan, even though *I do wear leather and fur (ONLY second hand) I try to buy mostly vegan items.

One of the coolest things about saddle shoes is that they match almost anything you wear, color wise and style wise. I wore mine with this gray paisley print dress last Saturday.
