After starting out with a booth in the Downtown Phoenix Farmers Market and quickly building up a following, the Pachamama restaurant opened up in 2020. Unfortunately, that’s right when the pandemic hit. But, by focusing on take-out right now, they have continued to build their loyal customer base by providing what the owners like to call “plant-based love” and “plant-based reimagined.” This is vegan food at its best!
As with most restaurants these days, Pachamama’s menu is a little streamlined right now, but everything they do offer is delicious, amazing plant-based food with authentic Latin flavors and spices. There is no soy, there are no processed ingredients, and there isn’t any of that nasty fake meat stuff. This is fresh, locally sourced ingredients thoughtfully combined into something tasty that just happen to be vegan.
Their most popular menu item by far is their Tacos de Papa. Served hot, you get three crunchy corn tortillas with chile garlic mash, cabbage, almonds, radish, and cilantro, served with an almond-arbol salsa on the side. Another customer favorite is the Wauli-Nut Rizo Burrito. This delicious burrito is overflowing with walnuts, cauliflower, chorizo spices, onions, peppers, cabbage, aji aioli, and zucchini slaw and comes with the almond-arbol salsa on the side.
Their most popular specials include their Chipotle Cashew Mac and the J’asada Tacos; these very popular dishes sell out fast, so get your order in early! Other past menu items include the Avo Tostadas, the Mexiyaki (a crunchy, crisp hash brown and rice pancake topped with avocado Pico de Gallo), and their popular Pachamama Cerviche.
They have Agua Fresca, sparkling water, jarritos (Mexican all-natural, fruit-flavored sodas), and small prepared sides like their Serrano Lime Hummus, Chuna Salad (chickpea salad) and their Ceviche.
Pachamama restaurant’s new location is at 4115 N 19th Ave, Phoenix – just off 19th Ave and the Indian School. And, there’s parking in the back of the restaurant. If you’re lucky, once the Farmer’s Market opens back up, you’ll still see them there too!
