Tocaya, a Mexican restaurant serving vegan and gluten-free options, opened last month at 2525 E. Camelback Road, offering salads, tacos, burritos, bowls and quesadillas in a fast-casual ambiance. The restaurant uses meat and fish that are 100-percent free of hormones, antibiotics and steroids and incorporates locally sourced produce into its menu.

Vegan and gluten-free options include Mexican kale Caesar and taco salads, fajitas del Rey, street corn en Fuego, Keto bowls and Cali and Barrio tacos. Happy hour is 3 to 6 p.m. every day with specials on drinks and $2-dollar bites.
