“I have noticed a major trend in the past few years about different dietary restrictions, and we are glad to be able to take care of guests regardless of their eating habits,” Urdiales said.

- Mexican meals provide the nutritional values vegetarians need to make up by not eating meat.
- Unwanted saturated fats and trans fats are replaced with healthier fats your body needs.
