Sarkis is a must-do when you’re in Buenos Aires. This Armenian restaurant is full every night it’s open and the que is usually between half an hour and an hour. Is it cold or rainy outside? Don’t worry, they have outside heating and you can wait under a plastic roof so you’ll be dry when you enter. Be aware, Sarkis is a factory.
We waited about 45 minutes before we could enter the restaurant. They try to get as many guests as possible and won’t let you look at the menu for to long. Visiting Sarkis means that you know what you’re gonna eat and you’re gonna eat it fast. The food offered is Armenian (of course) and the taste is very good and the dishes are of a good size.

Boy oh boy we miss Asian food. Coming from the Netherlands we’re very used to have many different Asian cuisines to choose from on every street corner. In Buenos Aires, that’s different.
But thank god there is Koh Lanta! Quite a fancy place, a big difference with most vegetarian restaurants. Well to be honest, this is not a vegetarian restaurant. They serve all other sorts of dishes but you can get them as vegetarian or vegan dishes. For that they usually add tofu or more vegetables. It’s basically the same as in Asian restaurants all over the world, more veggie-friendly!
The taste of the food, the beauty of the dishes and the staff is all of a very good level and for sure we would love to eat here again!

I used to ride a horse called ‘Sabio’ a lot and love that animal. So this must be a great place to eat! Los Sabios serves a buffet with vegetarian and vegan options. It’s quite cheap but the taste not bad at all! The buffet is a combination of Asian and Italian food (which actually fits very well) and it has a huge salad and desert bar.
Most people come here for take-away but you can as well take a seat and have dinner here. Don’t expect a romantic place but if you’re not in for cooking, get a bite here

Although this is actually a coffee bar, Full City Coffee House manages to serve delicious dishes as well. It’s not just vegetarian but they have some damn good options. I always go for the hummus sandwich and that is I think, worth a try for everyone. Besides that we love to come here for just a cup of coffee as well. FCCH also sells the beans they use them self so you can make a your own I-just-came-out-of-bed-coffee.

We didn’t know about this place until the waitress of another place told us to go here (there restaurant was closed). It wasn’t busy at all that night, just a few people outside, no-one inside. We were with three in total and sitting outside was only possible with two persons due the small sidewalk so we had to go in. But with the beautiful wall paintings it is great to be inside the restaurant!
Unfortunately not all the dishes on the menu were served this night so we had to let the sushi go. But we got to order a big salad, hamburger and portobello’s. All very good although the portobello’s were a bit small. To accompany the dishes we ordered three different homemade juices, all spectaculair!
We finished the night with a huge piece of lemon pie. We missed the lemon taste a bit but still, lovely desert. Maybe try the tiramisu or chocolate cake the next time, because they looked so good!

On accident we passed by this very nice restaurant in barrio Villa Crespo and decided to have dinner here. Surprised by the variety of dishes they serve, from pizza and pasta to stew and more traditional Argentine dishes, we choose for two plates to share. It was a pizza (integral) and some huge ravioli’s with avocado. Delicious!
It happens often that vegetarian restaurants have this cozy feeling, where the owner walks around, laughing with everyone and it’s all a bit…well, you know, cozy; not so professional. It’s something I do actually like about vegetarian restaurants. But in Almacén Purista everything feels more like a ‘normal’ restaurant. The service is of a very good standard and our waitress seems to know a lot about the food and the wine. She serves us well and the timing is right.
So, it feels more like a ‘normal’ restaurant, sitting on the spacious terrace (a lot of space for the tables inside as well!), enjoying a good glass of wine and a delicious dish. But even though the variety of dishes is big, they are not serving anything really special. No fusion meals or influences from strange parts of the world. But still, if you want to go for the good ‘ol Italian dish, go to Almacén Purista!

Our second favorite place! Buenos Aires Verde is famous in town for the special dishes they serve. Sit outside or inside with a view over the kitchen. It’s usually very busy so if you want to enjoy a meal at prime-time, make sure you reserve a table. Otherwise you might have to wait a little.
They serve 100% vegetarian and several vegan options varying from rice dishes with tofu, green salads, pasta, pizza, and several RAW food options too. They use natural, organic products many different juices, home made lemonades –
The staff is friendly and ‘ll prepare you a nice fresh juice or smoothie to accompany your plate. Smoothies (also vegan options) can be enriched with Polen, spirulina, or maca,
They have a little shop with wine, books, scin care products (Weleda) and beautiful tortas to take away, like a raw chocolate brownie!
We have gone several times and have enjoyed our food every time. Try one of the salads if you are in green mood, or a lentil hamburger with papas or couscous salad if you are more of the hungry type :-). We loved it!

I have to admit, a bit weird to put this cajun-style-restaurant on this site, they serve just one or two veggie / vegan meals, all the other servings are chicken, chicken and more (fried) chicken. But before you close this page, let me explain why Nola deserves a place here.
First of all, Nola is a great place with a lovely atmosphere, guests and staff. These days it’s always full with people and the whole sidewalk is used as terrace. Second, they serve the best pints in Buenos Aires, from the Broëders Brewery. My all time favorite is the IPA but taste them all before you decide what your favorite beer is. And as last, order a plate of red beans & rice with that. Served in old white bowls you’ll feel like being back in the ol’ times, enjoying your lunch in Louisiana while zipping a cold beer.
So even though it’s not really a super vegetarian friendly place, I love to come here. Not for a romantic dinner but for a good plate of food accompanied with the best beer in town! And don’t forget: happy hour every day between 17h and 20h.

A well known restaurant in Buenos Aires which you don’t only see in blog posts about healthy food in the city. You’ll find it in almost every guide. And there is a damn good reason for that. Hierbabuena is a very, very good restaurant. I remember the first time I went here. Had an meeting close to the restaurant but was a bit early so walked in for a bite, sat down and didn’t want to leave anymore! I was in Buenos Aires for a while already and by then it was difficult to find outstanding vegetarian food. But here I was, in this lovely place with a nice green interior, enjoying a lovely vegetarian fusion plate with a good glass of wine.
Every time I went back here I loved it even more. The staff has always been very friendly and the food and recipes keep on changing and surprising me. And you can take your meat-eating date to this restaurant and don’t have to be afraid that she ‘ll hate you for taking you to a vegetarian restaurant, because the menu offers both vegetarian options as meat / fish plates. It’s not the cheapest option but go here at least once, you won’t regret it.
