Good Buffet, Maybe Okay on Veganism

4 Posted on 04 / 30 / 2014

This place is very hidden away in the back of some buildings but has a wonderful garden and a very zen space. We got there early and so the buffet was fresh. I asked one of the workers if any of the food wasn't vegan. He didn't seem to know what vegan meant so I asked if anything had dairy, eggs or cheese and he said no.

They featured some vegetables which I enjoyed as I found vegetables to be a rare commodity when eating in Mexico City. The food was good, I wouldn't say it was great. Dessert options were limited and perhaps vegan, perhaps not.

Employees were very nice and pleasant.

Pros: Buffet Assortment, Ambience
Cons: Not Sure if Food was Vegan

The majority of the dishes were vegan when i went to the buffet today. Tey had soy meatballs, black beans, salad, fruit, tamarind juice, papaya juice, vegan cookies, vegan bread, sliced apples & raisins in coconut milk, spiced greens beans and veggie meat, lentil soup, spiced broccoli.

Pros: more options than Yug, nice open eating area with a fountain, pretty good food
Cons: sketchy bathrooms, little english spoken

I went here at about 3pm after arriving in Mexico City. The timing was perfect since nothing had run out yet.

The buffet had quite a lot of cooked and raw (salad, fruit salad) vegan options and you can keep eating until you can't fit any more in.

The staff were clued up on what's vegan and what isn't, which is always helpful.

Give it a go. It's pretty good.

Pros: All you can eat

What a great little place... which I never would've found if it weren't for HappyCow. Right between Insurgentes and Cuauhtemoc metro stations, a nice and varied buffet in a lovely, tranquil atmosphere. Interesting, many of the staff are Haitian - including in the kitchen, which puts a twist on some dishes (bear in mind that most of them don't speak Spanish, so a bit of pantomime might help). Highly recommended for a satisfying lunch.

Pros: varied, central, friendly
Cons: limited hours

    ...after eating here several more times I wanted to reinforce what a great place this is. Some of the best mole poblano I've ever had, delicious tamales, unique sauces. Friendly people and overall just a great place to support. Try getting there right around 1:30-2 as that's when everything has finally been put out. Sometimes gets crowded with locals as it's become deservedly popular in the neighborhood. Enjoy!

Everything I`ve ever eaten here, and I`ve eaten there a lot, has been great. Good variety in the buffet, good salad dressing and juices, main dishes are kind of soy heavy but good way to try mexican dishes that otherwise feature meat. Nothing I don`t love about this place! Cute atmosphere too

Pros: big buffet, green atmosphere, yummy
Cons: noisy when full, a tad more expensive than regular place

Friendly and Very Vegan-Friendly

First of all, they don't open up until 1:00 PM (instead of noon). However, I had a flight that afternoon, so when I showed up at 12:30 and didn't have a half hour to wait, they let me come in and start eating anyway (they already had the salads out, and the main courses came out shortly thereafter). Almost everything appeared to be vegan and were quite tasty. They had things like chili rellenos, pinto bean soup, "soy asada", noodles, rice, various salad items (including alfalfa sprouts), papaya slices, etc. Because I came early, they still had the previous days buffet menu displayed, and it a dish with nopales--the cactus leaves, which are certainly uber-Central-Mexico. Highly recommend--thought too bad they're not open for dinner. Affordable--I think it was 55 pesos plus drink.

Pros: tasty, friendly, accommodating staff, great location near Zona Rosa
Cons: needs longer hours
