Wonderful mostly vegan restaurant in Mendoza
Posted on 03 / 06 / 2010
We discovered this new vegetarian vegan friendly restaurant in February 2010, whilst spending a week in Mendoza. We had already tried other vegetarian eateries in Mendoza and our verdict is that this one is the best by far, especially if you are vegan - like us - because you will find lots of delectable vegan options on offer (not just iceberg salad leaves). Because Azahares is new, everything is clean and fresh looking. The owners are vegan and delightful. The couple of ladies in the kitchen know what they are doing and display appetizing food on the buffet. They change the menu every day. You can eat in the small but welcoming restaurant or do take aways and eat at the nearby Plaza de Espana or back at your accommodation. We are well travelled "Kiwi" vegans, currently living in Santiago, and Azahares is in our top three vegan restaurants in the world so far. Congratulations to the owners. I hope they are succesful and that, psychologically and financially, are able to maintain the very high standards that they have set for their new business. Azahares appeared to be already well suppoorted by locals. From speaking to the owners, what they need now is support from overseas visitors. We ate there every single lunchtime and bought takeways for dinner. We only wish Mendoza was just a bit closer to Santiago so that we could head to Azahares every week-end.
Delicious vegan options, Menu changes every day, Very friendly vegan owners
