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,

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)
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.

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?
