And I was like, "Heck yes I do," but in a Napoleon Dynamite voice.

This place is all about the ambience. It's tiny, bright, charming, and your wait can be rather long, but we got in after only about 10 minutes at 12:30p on a Sunday. The walls are covered in very personable, small, neatly-written graffiti.

The vegan options here are somewhat limited - you just can't have that black bean burger - but it is possible to have a delicious and satisfying vegan meal. I went for the Vegetales Criollo off the lunch menu for $8.75.

That amazing plate covers every food group; black beans and rice on the bottom, the house creole sauce Criollo in the bowl with lots of delicious veggies, and tostones (fried plantains!) off to the side. The meal was simple and lovely. Nice and warm, well-spiced, and improved by the addition of the Tobasco on the table. I threw my beans and rice into the Criollo and went for it. Yum. The tostones were savory and good with a little salt - like fries made out of plantains.

Clearly, a place that combines delicious food, history, and nihilistic memes is worth a visit.
