The hardest part of eating vegetarian is explaining to the family that the flamingo tongues at the Saturnalia banquet still count as meat. Today’s Groupon serves up healthy vegan and vegetarian fare for eaters of all persuasions: for $3, you get $6 of fast and healthy fare at Alfresco on Pacific Avenue.

To dish downtown office lunchers with an alternative to fast foods, Alfresco's walk-up eatery proffers a generous selection of hot dishes, wraps, and salads served in two minutes or less. A bed of brown rice rests below peanut sauced shiitake mushrooms and teriyaki baked tofu in the Asian rice bowl ($4.95). Meanwhile, discerning wrappers can freestyle the contents of their own tortilla with a variety of flavorful spreads, boom-bap greens, and lightly salted hype men ($4.25+). Alfresco's extensive menu also lists customizable salads (starting at $4.95) and Mediterranean small plates (starting at $2). Owner and electric car driver Marilyn Strayer prides her 2010 Golden Carrot-winning and Monterey Bay Green Business-associated food stand for using exclusively biodegradable cups, cutlery, serve ware, and servers.
