I am in Syracuse, NY for a couple days and very pleasantly surprised by all the vegan options.
A quick search through my phone the first night revealed Alto Cinco and my colleague who lives here was thrilled when I suggested it. She describes it as Cali-Mexican food. But there are Catfish and BBQ options on the menu, so lots of people can find what they find yummy.
There is a standing BBQ tofu dish on the menu, so I knew I would be happy. Excitingly, one of the specials during my visit was tofu ricotta tacos!
I picked spinach with brown rice and beans for the sides. I was not disappointed. It was yummy. A bit bland, but fresh and worth eating.
When in Syracuse, Alto Cinco is worth trying. The dining room was dark, noisy, and cold, but our server very kind. Alto Cinco gets three out of five vegan cupcakes. A good option when dining with others who still think they need to eat animals.
