El Chilango (i.e. person from Mexico City) is a self-serve cafeteria style restaurant. The décor is nothing special, but for a Mexican restaurant, the vegetarian selection is both extensive and creative. There are plenty of vegan choices, and a good selection of salsas. The staff is very helpful at explaining the all the offerings. Customers build their own meal which is priced per pound. As an added bonus, certain nights feature karaoke.
