Vegan Vacation,The Pitted Date, Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

With its tropical personality and jungle vibes it’s no wonder Playa Del Carmen is a literal hot spot. From the architecture, people and food, Playa is a hybrid of the old and new. The juxtaposition of hole in the wall taquerias stands in contrast to the more modern and chic eateries catering to the health-centric visitors…that’s me.  

Vegan The Pitted Date Playa Del Carmen

Eating healthy is a lifestyle and I’m a firm believer that vacation doesn’t have to get in the way, enter The Pitted Date. Started in 2015, this restaurants mission is to make vegan food taste amazing, I ate here everyday, does that prove they've accomplished this? The menu covers the gamut and foods you were forced to give up (burgers, eggs, cheese) have all been re-invinted in the most delicious of ways. Start the morning with a delicious almond milk latte or one of the many fresh juices or smoothies they offer. The menu encompasses everything from amazing breakfast bagels and omelettes to insane tacos and burgers none of which disappoint. 




Just a few blocks from the beach their large patio is the perfect perch to lounge in the shade while the warm beach breeze acts as an appetizer to the approaching feast. Palm tree lined muraled walls stand inside among modern industrial decor with a tropical twist. While the food and decor kept me coming back the service and smiles of the amazing girls running the show was the sweet icing on this vegan cake.
