Mushroom tacos, sweet potato tacos, traditional chicken or beef… don’t let their small size fool you: this Bloomfield Mexican eatery has an extensive and impactful menu with the flavor to match.
Downtown and Shadyside
Go for the vegan Cuban-inspired menu options, stay for the live jazz performances and alluring atmosphere.
This local chain is a popular choice in the Latinos en Pittsburgh Facebook group. Give Rey Azteca a visit and select your favorite Mexican dish to see why.

Another Latinos en Pittsburgh Facebook group favorite, Panaderia Jazmin, offers traditional Mexican bread and baked goods.

Their Southern California Mexican options include vegan and vegetarian choices. Solid menu.
