Clean, healthy, tasty and Vegan in Monza

Posted on 12 / 22 / 2015

It's always packed because there are only about 6-8 tables available. I was lucky because there was a small table available just for me while others in bigger groups were turned away. There is a sort of cooler where you can choose various vegetable, protein, and carb based dishes. I went today for lunch and was surprised with so many choices (cereal/veg flan, falafel, hummus, seitan, tempeh, azuki beans, greens, stuffed artichokes, mushroom whole grain risotto, rice noodle salad, spinach crepes, pasta al forno, "russian" salad, seitan salad and a few others). Of course, you pay by the weight of your plate but water/digestive tea and bread are included in the coperto of .90 cents. I also tried a lovely chocolate truffle and a bio coffee with soy milk - heavenly. I'm not 100 percent sold on the whole re-warm thing for every dish (for example, I prefer my hummus cold and the azuki beans were a bit tough after being recooked). However, the seitan was perfect in texture and flavor; the cereal flan had just the right balance of crunch and smoothness and was seriously yummy. I loved my experience and will definitely return soon!

Pros: Wonderful, clean food equals pure energy, Solo diners can nab a spot more easily, Myriad of tasty vegan choices &friendly
Cons: Rewarmed, so some dishes suffer a bit, not too many tables, so book ahead, Nothing offered w/ spices or extra heat

a little corner of vegan paradise

I am a vegetarian who loves vegan food and la pentola vegana is amazing. Their seitan and hummus are delicious and everytime i've been there i found different oppptunities and new dishes to try! All my friends who are non vegetarian love the place too!
The only thing to remember is that the restaurant is quite small, so it is better to call before going. Another thing that may scare some people is that they show you the food, you choose it and then they re-heat it in a microwave: that is not a problem at all, the food tastes really good anyway and they keep cooking it in the kitchen, so it won't lay there too long!
So my final tip is: GO THERE SOON!

Pros: delicious (also for non-veg), different opportunities, you create your own dish
Cons: small place, microwave

cozy nice vegan deli just out of Milan

Posted on 10 / 06 / 2013

if you look for a good meal, home made flavored and very special you need to come here!
Pentola Vegana is a little vegan deli with a large choice of dishes and salads and wonderful cakes. The place is little and you cannot reserve the table so if you want a place, hurry up!
Sober location, simple furniture, you choose your dishes at the desk and all the meals are served hot and in few minutes. You can also drink a delicate tea. Try the tiramisu cake and the chocolate truffles: an explosion of pleasure!
You can also buy vegan books and food to take away.

Pros: cozy , excellent crespelle, gnocchi and lemon hummus, near Milan
Cons: few places to seat

Nice and delicious

I heard that La Pentola Vegana was of the Mens@Sana circuit and that at a certain point they decided to split from the chain and started cooking fresh food daily.

The place is small, if you're not tanking the food away you have to be lucky to find a free table.

I tasted one of the best vegan lasagna ever and the Tiramisu, if available, is a MUST!

Hope to visit it back soon.

Pros: Lasagna and tiramisu!, Cooked daily
Cons: Small, might not be able to seat
