With the growing demand among travelers for vegetarian and vegan dining options, Viceroy Zihuatanejo has become the destination’s first hotel or resort to offer dedicated menus for vegan and vegetarian guests.
“Rather than merely offer a few special dishes like many other hotels, we wanted our guests to enjoy complete menus with many delicious choices and options,” said General Manager Martin Kipping. “With the abundance of fresh foods grown and produced in the Zihuatanejo area, we have created a full array of sensational dishes for our vegan and vegetarian friends.”
Both menus offer a selection of salads, soups and main courses, while the vegan menu also has appetizers and desserts. Vegans can choose from such dishes as Vegan Bean Soup with Epazote (Pasilla chile, fried tortilla), Vegan Fajitas (onion, tomato, cactus, peppers, mushrooms, beans, guacamole and salsas), Vegan Portobello & Mashed Potato with Truffle Oil (tomato confit, sautéd spinach) and Fruit Flambé with Tequila (pineapple, avocado and celery granite).
Vegetarians have such options as Green Salad with Sprouts ( goat cheese, confit de calamata, crostini, walnut and pear dressing), Gazpacho Andaluz (pepper, tomato, croutons), Vegetarian Green Enchiladas (beans, avocado, sour cream, gouda cheese) and Greek Linguini (oregano, cherry tomato, Feta cheese, Kalamata olive). See attached menus.
“At Viceroy Zihuatanejo our mission is to consistently elevate the guest experience by adding special services and unique touches,” explained Kipping. “Recently we’ve added authentic Mexican street food on Friday nights, a Spa Palapa on the sand where guests enjoy treatments at the ocean’s edge, and now the only dedicated vegan and vegetarian menus of any resort in Zihuatanejo.”
