Decent food, good price!

The food is set out in buffet style, you pay for what you choose. I went for 1/2 portions of four different items so as to taste more different things - the green crepes (rolled with a cheese filling) were my favourite. Overall I would say the food was good, but nothing special. The price was good at $2.70 for my meal, including a juice.

Small Place with Local Vegetarian Food

Posted on 11 / 28 / 2007

Yep...lots of stuffed veggies here and vegetarian versions of other Salvadoran dishes. There were about 12 different dishes (mains and sides combined) to choose from the lunch counter--about half were vegan. There is a disadvantage though--the food is a little too salty--but otherwise the food is of moderate quality (the other 2 vegetarian places in San Salvador that I tried were better).

Pros: affordable, Salvadoran food w/o the meat
Cons: too salty
