I love Casa Alvarez, a local woman owned business that has been my Mexican go to for years. Many veg folks I speak to don't know about the wonderful vegan options that are plentiful and delicious. The management/owner of Casa Alvarez has come up with a spectacular offering for our community that will allow us to try ALL of their special vegan options (including some made just for this event) in a buffet, all you can eat dinner!
This special buffet will include ALL of the following!
1) Spinach enchiladas: corn tortilla filled with sautéed garlic spinach topped with spicy vegetarian chile sauce
2) Marinated Grilled Tofu: organic tofu marinated in tamari, lime juice and olive oil seared and grilled with onions, peppers and tomatoes.
3) Vegetarian chile: a blend of five different chiles in a spicy and creamy sauce. This sauce is vegan, we use Non GMO corn starch to thicken it.
4) Spinach and rice Chimichanga: Spanish rice and garlic spinach wrapped in a flour tortilla and fried till crispy. We use Non GMO rice bran oil for frying with zero trans fats.
5)Guacamole tostada: freshly made guacamole,( avocados, tomatoes, onions, cilantro and spices), over a crispy corn tostada topped with fresh lettuce and salsa
6)Spanish Rice: rice cooked in the traditional tomato, onions and spices.
7)Beans: Refried cooked with vegetable oil and spices. Black beans cooked whole in a spicy sauce.
8)Chips, Salsa and Guacamole!
The cost will be $18.00 per person which includes $13.99 for the buffet and the rest for tax and 18 per cent gratuity. An incredible deal for an all you can eat vegan dinner buffet.
Please bring cash as I will collect upfront. Please change your rsvp at least 48 hours before if you can no longer attend. No shows or late cancels will be responsible for paying the $18. This is only fair to Casa or any restaurant that goes out of their way to host our meetup community. I will close RSVPs 48 hours before the event so we can give them a proper head count to prepare accordingly.
I know this is a busy time for everyone but I have had a few requests for restaurant outings for those of us who are in town for the holidays. This will be our last one for 2013. Come party and hang with your veg community and support this special vegan offering.
Oh, and they have special happy hour drinks (not included in $18) that you can also order.
Hope to see a nice group for this special outing. lisa
