SUPER CHEAP delicious food.

Posted on 11 / 29 / 2014

If you're on budget and always hungry, this is THE place to go.

I'm talking 3 dollars for a lot of food.

There are many options available, some are 100% vegan and others have eggs or cheese. The chinese owner will explain to you if you ask.

We ate there for 5 nights in a row, because it's so cheap and the food is very tasty.

Most customers take their meals to go, but you can also stay there to eat.

I strongly recommend it.

Pros: SUPER CHEAP, like really, Open Late, Tasty Food

MSG and not madison square garden

So yeah....

This place is literally four blocks from my apt and I want to love it as it is cheap, convenient, and has lots of fresh food right on my way home from the subway......

Only, this seems to be MSG masquerading as food.

I did not even consider this when I was picked out my vegan foods for my to go tray. And since this is a tendor libre, or pre made food to go, or all you can eat in restaurant, there is no way of ordering any without chemical additives.

When will the world learn that veggies take effing great sans chemicals????? It is hardly what one would expect from a joint called green life. Chemicals /= green!!!!

I eagerly await that day!

Unless you like that "holy crap, my brain itches" feeling one gets from MSG, avoid at all costs.

Pros: food nicely presented and fresh, cheap
Cons: msg, msg, msg

Totally worth it

As said before, a nice all-you-can-eat buffet (80 pesos today, Aug. 30 2014), with asian and spanish style dishes.
A good deal of vegan options - I had some stewed seitan and sauteed tofu with veggies for instance. For vegetarians there is also a choice of quiches or cannelloni / lasagne and such.
Also desserts, especially not vegan flan-style things.

The general impression is a not very refined food, but tasty and satisfying.
The price is very correct for the offer.

Pros: large choice, many vegan options
Cons: Cafeteria-style dining room

Good food for good price

The restaurant is very near downtown - if you are near the subway B line, just take it to the direction "J.M. de Rosas", get out in the Callao station and walk two more blocks.

It's an all-you-can-eat (at dinner it's 73 pesos), with salads, hot dishes and desserts (try the vegan ice cream). The hot dishes are somewhat greasy and there's too much fried stuff. The salad variety is good though - you can actually eat everything a little from it and you'll be fine.
There is also a takeaway possibility, charged by kilo.

The ambience is very nice but be prepared to speak some Spanish, as the owner is Chinese and the waiters are Argentinian...

Pros: central location, good food, good value
Cons: too much fried/greasy stuff

Good food, good prices.

The food is good, the place not that much, the pricing is based on the food weight, and the prices are pretty good, some times i grab some food there, las week 1 kilogram was less than Us$8.

The staff know the ingredients, wichs is great because most of the time it's difficult to know which food is vegan or not.

I totally recomended if you want to grab some food and eat it at home, work, college...

Pros: Low price., The staff is informed., Tastes good.
Cons: Not much vegan food.

Like it!

A lot of vegan options and all of the workers are aware of the ingredients each food contains.
Verry good pumpkin and spinach balls.

Pros: Options, Location, Relaxing music
