Good burger, bad bread

Posted on 01 / 19 / 2012

The burger is OK, but the bread is very bad quality. Of corse, bread is generally not a very healthy thing to eat in Colombia, since it most likely is very white, very sweet and not filled with any kind of nutrients that you need.
One serving with burger will not be enough if you are very hungry. The chili sauce is very good.
I have also tried the lasagna, a quite average dish. It was not fresh, but heated from frozen condition. It was served in a aluminium tray that was not reusable, and didn't come with a salad. I would rather go for the burger.

One of the staff was nice and service-minded, but another one working there seemed to be in a very bad mood and gave you the feeling of not being welcomed.

Lots of potential!

Pros: Ok food, Small portions
Cons: Not always great service

The original and the best!

This place is amazing... a real example of the new vegetarian movement in Medellin, the owner has invented some of the tastiest homemade lentil and garbanzo burgers you'll find anywhere on earth. It's small inside, but there are still several tables and it's a nice environment. Nachos, ceviche, lasagnas, etc. The location is very interesting and near to the counterculture "Parque Periodista," just a half a block away on Calle 53. To top it off, they're open till at least 9:30 on weekdays and sometimes past 11 on weekends. Not to be missed while in Medallo!

Pros: fantastic homemade burgers, cheap, super quick
Cons: location is small
