Solid option close to the central park

Posted on 11 / 03 / 2013

Just to be clear, this restaurant started out vegetarian in the 90's but has been mixed for at least 7 years, so no surprise there. They have a separate vegetarian menu and offer several different all-veg soups and entrees.

I was temped to give it a 3 due to some lackluster waiter service, but the manager/chef stepped in and fixed the experience. Make sure to be absolutely clear that you want vegetarian, and if vegan, "sin lacteos, sin leche, sin crema." Note that a few things which may not seem vegan (like the chef's delicious homemade mustard dressing) in fact are. Worth checking out for quick, inexpensive lunches and a typical yet quirky atmosphere. Tasty chop suey and enchiladas.

Pros: Centrally located, Previously vegetarian, Friendly manager/chef
Cons: Less than 50% veg, Some issues w/waitstaff

NOT Vegetarian

I tried to go there in November, but it wasn't VG, I think It was vegetarian in the past but now they serve Meat. They have some VG option but not a lot...

A good place for lunch!

Not our favorite restaurant that we found in San Cristobal, but definitely good for lunch and worth supporting. They have a vegetarian meal of the day. We had a very nice vegetable soup and good bread with fantastic basil and cilantro oil spreads. My quesadilla verde was just ok to be honest. The other entree, stuffed zucchini, was good but nothing memorable. The chocolate cake was edible but forgettable. Nice decor, decent food AND inexpensive.
