Green Eat is a natural mini-market and has quite a unique concept in Buenos Aires. You can buy natural pre-packed food like salads, sushi, wraps, sandwiches that all look good and yummy. You can take it with you or eat it in store, where they also sell yams, marmelades, cupcakes and other sweet tooth-things.
Not all the food at Green Eat is vegetarian but they sure have many (i think mainly) vegetarian ánd vegan options. As we were in a hurry ourselves, I took a natural yoghurt and fruit cup to go. MAN it was good! I really loved it and will go back to taste more of their lovely foody things soon.
Grean Eat has two locations on or near Santa Fe; so you can shop ánd treat yourself to some goodness in the same street.

The kitchen of this multi-purpose cultural centre and no-nonsense place, offers 100% Vegetarian food for lunch & dinner: Salads, Koftas, Paninis, Hamburgers with lentils or aduki beans- burritos with different fillings and pizza’s, of which two vegan options.
We ate the Kofta’s and a Burrito with mushrooms which were both good (although the kofta’s were a bit cold). I was, however a great fan of the huge vegan starting & sharing platter with lots of olives, pickles, toasted breadslices and two tasty dips of carrot and spinach.
The service is very friendly and there is a super relaxed atmosphere. In summer the seats outside are busy with people eating and enjoying grand sized cocktails. We had a wonderful evening, leaving the place only at 3.30 am….

No# 3 on our favorites list! This cute little Almacen & Café Bar serves dishes made with natural, organic, vegetarian and vegan products. You can join them for a vegetarian breakfast or lunch and drinks, work there or just chat with friends and take their lovely products home afterwards.
From the street this looks like a small shop, yet behind the Almacen area you find a cute indoor patio with several seets to work or have lunch. We are great fan of the Tostada’s with Humus and Grilled Vegetables and the Bruscetta’s with three different toppings (Humus with caramalised union, Protobellos, and Pesto with sundried tomatos).
Order a bottle of home made Mint&Ginger lemonade and you are good to go!

Mercadito Latino is the place to be for those times when you feel a craving for good Mexican (vegetarian) food. The place offers vegetarian options but also serves meat and fish. We like it spicy and on request we received a wonderful, super spicy, home-made chili sauce with our vegetarian quesadilla’s, filled with grilled vegetables and cheese. Another good veggie option is the all-vegetarian sharing plate combining all vegetarian options of their menu.

Arevalito is a pure vegetarian restaurant with tastes from all over the world. Dinner options can be turned vegan on your request. The little, cosy restaurant is run by the charismatic Carmen Paz, who once ran a restaurant in a basement in central Amsterdam during the roaring 70’s. This place is very cute. It has an open kitchen at the front and three different spaces with a small number of tables and seats, including a little, airy patio. The division in different spaces ensures that wherever you sit, it feels cosy and comfortable.
We visited the place at a weird time for a late lunch (18h) when the crew was preparing for dinner. However, Carmen made sure they made us two nice and hearty dishes: a vegetable stir fry and a warm sandwich with an egg and grilled vegetables. Both were a good portion of healthy, honest vegetarian food. With it, we drank a home-made lemonade of lemon and ginger. The version without any sugar was our favorite!
We were pleased to have visited this friendly place, and would recommend it to anyone looking for honest vegetarian food.

BIO solo organico is a unique place in Buenos Aires as it offers not only vegetarian and vegan delicious food, everything they serve is organic as well. This makes it a slightly pricier option, yet the food is definitely worth it. We are in love with their ginger & sesame ice cream and really enjoyed the tofu in mustard-sauce!

Curcuma must be our all-time favorite vegetarian restaurant in Buenos Aires. It serves great food, the atmosphere is very relaxed and the service is super friendly. We love their patatas bravas covered in curcuma as a starter and the pizza with a wholemeal base and fresh rucola as a shared main combined with one of their fresh salads.
In the weekend Curcuma invites artists providing you with great live music and on Sundays you can even join in a tango class. This place is highly recommended and we are sure you will have a great time here!
