Eating Out New Orleans: Santa Fe Tapas Vegan Brunch


This past Saturday, we spent the entire day out and about with our mom. For lunch, we decided to be adventurous and try out a restaurant that we had heard about through the New Orleans vegan community grapevine.

Every Saturday, Santa Fe Tapas on St. Charles has a vegan brunch. Everything was absolutely delicious! Probably one of the best meals any of us have ever eaten! As soon as they brought us our meals, all 3 of us immediately whipped out our iPhone’s to take pictures! Everything was so pretty and looked incredible and we had to document this! The tamales were our favorite, though, hands down. And the bananas foster – oh my goodness! To die for!

Here’s what we ordered:

Roasted Vegetables Vegan Tamales, Poblano Mole, Pico de Gallo, Guacamole

Crisp marinated Tofu, Piquillo Roasted Corn Spinach Shallot Orzo (Risotto)

Panneed “Scallopini” Parsnip Potato Latke, Asparagus Amandine

Bananas Foster (with house made vegan ice cream!)

If anyone has a delicious vegan tamale recipe, please share it with us! We’ve been dreaming about it ever since!

  1. Sounds great! I knew of only three other restaurants doing vegan tamales: Izzy’s in Little Rock, AR; Gracias Madre in San Francisco, CA; and Los Gorditos in Portland, OR. Hope this is the start of a new trend!

    For a recipe check out “A Vegan Taste of Mexico” by Linda Majzlik. Haven’t tried the tamale recipe in there yet, but it looks easy enough. All the others I’ve tried have been winners.

    • I hope it’s a trend too! This is the first place I have seen a vegan tamale as well. And it was SO good. I’ll definitely have to check out that recipe, thanks!

  2. wow. can’t wait til saturday. kelli, have you been to O!VEGASM! at the st. roch tavern?

    • Hey Danielle! Yes we actually ate his vegan poboys at po boy fest and they were to die for. I follow him on fb and I’ve been meaning to get out that way and order some food. Everything he posts sounds and looks amazing! Do you go often?
