Good vegan option in Arica

large pino empanadas the were delightful and scrumptious. Also had a plate each of the vegan specials for the day. Grilled tofu and a seitan Lomita each served with a gingery fried rice accent with lots of green onions and a large potato slice with delicious vegan mayo. The grilled tofu was the slightly sour kind grilled with some spices. The seitan Lomita was a little hard to cut but still deliciously spiced and pan fried. Desert not vegan :(

Pros: Good healthy simple food, Vegan protein!, Takes credit cards!
Cons: Desert not vegan

Gateway to other Vegetarian options....

Here you can obtain a "passport" book for "Revolucion de la Cuchara" (Revolution of the Spoon). This book & associated web-site enable you to find a participating restaurant or veg-friendly establishment & to get a discount there. It is a slowly growing movement across South America (traditionally very meat oriented cultures.) We found a Govinda's (Hari Krishna centres serving food) in La Serena & Temuco as well in Chile. Ask as you go, they are often not "open" to the public & you have to knock on closed doors to get in.

Pros: affordable, funky vibe
Cons: not always easy to find

this place is the first authentic hare krishna restaurant i have been to. the food is balanced and yummy and it all comes on a metal tray like in high school for $3. The herbal tea was delicious. the meal was a veg curry with brown rice, salad, whole grain bread and chocolate pudding with coconut. they are only open for lunch.

Pros: good value, friendly, good food
Cons: only open for lunch, meal needs more protein (beans, nutsJ)
