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!

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.

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!

Vita offers a wide range of sweet cakes and tarts – containing an organic wholemeal base, organic cane sugar, coconut oil instead of butter and dulce de leche made of soja. Yet if you do not have a sweet tooth you can feast on the hearty options as pizzas, salads and pastas. For drinks they offer organic café, fresh juices, smoothies (with non-dairy milk), juice mixes (with optional wheatgrass), infused waters, and more. We advise you to stick with the vita-like products and don’t try their coffee.

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!

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.
