American visiting San Jose soon!
November 29, 2009 05:53PM
Hi gals,

You haven't posted in a while, but I am hoping to communicate. I'm an American coming to honeymoon in Costa Rica very soon, and will spend some days in San Jose. I would love to be aware of any vegetarian or vegan or macrobiotic restaurants in the San Jose area before I arrive. Can you two give any advice?

Thanks and hope to hear from you,

Rebecca

Hi Rebbeca.

There arn't a lot of options in San Jose.
But I have a couple I can pass on.
One is in Escazu

Tzu Jan
Plaza Golden, San Rafael de Escazu, San Jose Costa Rica (at 50.N de Super Guachimarket frente AutoStar)
2289-4695
Its adorable, its probably what you would call a whole in the wall but its serves awesome vegan, vegetarian food.

There is also a Thai Restaurant which has a few vegetarian options called Lemongrass.
Sorry I don't know the address but its in a town called Paco.

There is also a chain usually found in the mall food courts called Love something, I can't remember the whole name but they have a very nice salad bar and they also serve hummus.

I hope this helps, where are you headed to after San Jose?

Best of luck and have a lovely vacation.

Carmen,

Thank you! I think I have found Lemongrass' address online:
Phone: 228-8345
Address?: 105 El Cruce, Escazu, San Jose
Located "across the west side of I Centro Comercial Pace or just in front of Tre Fratelli."
Located "right across the street on the road going up to Jaboncillo/downtown Escazu. Next door to Chez Cristophe."

Do either of these sound right? If so, which one, or both?

I also found a very helpful blog with some tips: [asiescostarica.blogspot.com]

My husband and I are taking a Tucan Tour (Tucantravel.com) through San Jose, to La Fortuna, to Arenal Volcano, to Santa Elena, to Monteverde Cloud Forest, to Manuel Antonio National Park, and back to San Jose -- for 2 weeks.

Any comments or advice you have will be appreciated! Are you a native of San Jose?

Rebecca
