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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
