appealing buffet not far from the center

Posted on 10 / 06 / 2012

Nice spot, and one of the few (if only) reliable veg choices in the city. Decent and varied buffet, though it was nearly depleted when I arrived at 2 p.m. on a Saturday, and was also only about half vegan (the rest had egg and cheese).

It's about a 15-20 minute walk from the center, but it's a pleasant one: you can walk down Carranza until hitting the lovely Jardin Tequisquiapan and then walk two blocks north to Zapata. Food is usually gone by 3 or 3:30 p.m.

Pros: one of the only options here, varied, nice energy
Cons: not very vegan, limited hours, buffet runs out quickly

Great, inexpensive vegetarian food

This place is still open (and has been for the last 15 years!), though is a bit of a walk from the centro (google maps is incorrect about the location, but the address is correct, so go by that).

I just had the lunch buffet for 60 pesos, and it was definitely worth it! As a vegan, I ended up having the following dishes:

Potato tacos
Mixed wild rice (a really nice surprise!)
Black beans
Chayote and carrots (sauteed)
Tofu and veggie salad (surprisingly tasty!)
Vegan pozole soup
Nopalitos (cactus) salad

Plus, there was a wonderful and fresh salad bar (with many veggie options, but only olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dressing).

Lastly, there were about 5 or 6 dishes that had eggs or cheese. So, if you are not vegan, you could enjoy those too.

All said, this place was a nice surprise. They definitely use no chicken broth in anything. Nothing too creative, but good and inexpensive vegetarian Mexican fare. I will definitely be going back!

Also, the buffet begins at 1pm and closes when food runs out (between 3:30 and 4pm). Your best best is to get there between 1 and 3pm!

Pros: inexpensive, 100% vegetarian!, tasty!
Cons: not super creative

Good solid buffet

We go to the lunch buffet once in awhile, salad is always available and a good variety of other dishes, sometimes not very original but always a lot of food. Most times juice and dessert is also available. Recommended.
They also sell some veggie and health food products and have workshops and regular yoga classes.

Pros: also have products and yoga, very friendly, discount cards available
