“District Taco launches vegan protein called Itza – Beyond Carne, made with Beyond Meat.”

From a press release:

District Taco, a popular fast-casual Mexican restaurant based in the Washington D.C. Metro and Greater Philadelphia areas, has introduced their newest menu item, Itza – Beyond Carne. The plant-based vegan protein made with Beyond Meat will be available at all District Taco locations starting January 1, 2020.

The restaurant chain is committed to being a delicious, accommodating dining option for all customers. The current menu offers many options for those with specific dietary needs and the company is thrilled to be adding a new vegan protein to their repertoire.

“It brings us great joy to expand our menu with more healthy offerings for those looking to decrease meat consumption” says Osiris Hoil, District Taco CEO and Co-Founder. “We want to make sure to have an innovative, delicious menu that appeals to all customers, regardless of dietary preferences or restrictions.”

By leveraging Beyond Meat, District Taco was able to create a vegan option that looks and tastes great and also satisfies those that are seeking an option that is similar to ground beef. Itza has 14 grams of protein per serving, beating out many current meat-based menu items. Itza is soy-free, gluten-free, and non-GMO. This Beyond Meat formula is made from a base of pea- protein, and is cooked with fresh vegetables and spices for a flavor unique to District Taco.

“For over a decade since we founded District Taco, my family and I have been trying to reduce our personal consumption of meat for health and environmental reasons. Our new Itza recipe not only satisfies that craving for ground beef in a taco or burrito, it nails it,” adds Marc Wallace, District Taco’s Co-Founder, “I’m confident that vegetarians, vegans and meat-eaters alike will love Itza.”
