Served with love & passion

homemade vegan mexican

The Hidalgo Family of Bradley Beach, owners of Luna Verde, name Mexican food as their favorite. As a vegan family, parents Mahonrry and Eslin Morris, along with their son, Marel (who just happens to be an amazing guitarist), have wanted to share their love of delicious and homemade (vegan) Mexican food. When the right location became available, they decided to open a restaurant themselves.

X mak’ ulan waaj (yucatec maya language) or Tamales de Hoja Santa (in Spanish) are just ready. Filled with refried black beans and steamed on corn husks this traditional and popular dish has been prepared in Mexico before colonial times. La hoja santa or sacred pepper or sacred leave is a very complex flavor aromatic herb used, in this case, to wrap the masa dough before being wrapped by the corn husks. You eat the Hoja Santa (like a sort of sushi roll). Served as our other tamales dishes this one will have a side of salsa verde (serranos, jalapeños, tomatillos) or salsa roja (maduro, morita, chipotle, jitomates).

Check out our website for the rest of our specials this weekend that include 12 different types of Empanadas, Pozole, Mole Poblano, Huaraches, Tamales Rojos y Verdes, Green Fried Tomatoes Tostadas and more…
