Respond to Review of La Vegetariana - Centro
by semicolon1

Review: If you are a strict vegetarian or vegan, I'd take a look at the Spanish language sites (particularly haztevegetariano.com), which more than suggests the cooks don't know or don't care about dietary issues dear to veggies. Many an entry suggests the cooks use gelatin, chicken broth, and the like when flavoring dishes. My own experience suggests that's very likely. It's a shame, but folks in South American have a long way to travel in the world of healthy victuals.

I did not read this before traveling but I wish I had. I did notice that they had jello for dessert which I thought was suspect so of course did not order it. I can see where maybe some people might think gelatin is vegetarian but it is not. But chicken broth? There's just no excuse. Next time I will be more careful in my selections. Still this was one of the only vegan friendly restaurants I found in Uruguay and Argentina and it was like an oasis at the time.
