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.”

Diners can find full nutritional and ingredient information on the District Taco website, along with an interactive nutrition calculator for those interested in viewing the details of their customized meals.

“District Taco is proud to be a restaurant chain that caters to absolutely everyone,” Hoil says. “Our goal is to have fresh, healthy options for anyone craving an authentic Mexican meal.”

About District Taco

In 2009, two neighbors, Osiris Hoil and Marc Wallace, got together over some homemade chips, salsa and guacamole and decided to launch District Taco as a food cart. Since then, District Taco has since grown to fourteen locations and employs over 400 people in and around the Washington D.C. Metro and Greater Philadelphia area.

Our mission is to serve quality Mexican (Yucatán style!) food that is fresh, simple and healthy. All of our food is made fresh daily from the highest quality ingredients. We strive to limit our impact on the environment by serving in environmentally-friendly packaging when possible.
