I just had dinner at this delightful spot. Tucked into a side street in the tourist-ridden and quite pricey but beautiful El Calafate, Kalushen feels like a combination dining nook/family room. Featuring a menu that is 100% vegetarian with numerous vegan options, their fare is simple but savory. I had the lentil burger--obviously made upon ordering and cooked just right with the edges of the burger all crispy. This comes with a generous serving of brown rice, seasonal vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, pumpkin), and a very fresh side salad, all for 40 pesos, a steal in this town. I opted to get one of their lunchbox meals for my trek tomorrow, which includes a soy burger sandwich, fruit, water, and a sweet. Can't wait.
Cons: doesn't open until 4pm
