La Barra Uruguay
2012 - Veggi Haven in South America
In La Barra, near Punta del Este, Uruguay (the fashionable Monte Carlo of South America), local restaurants have adopted a vegetarian friendly policy instigated by local 'holistic' online directory, greenpagespunta.com.
Named the Viaje Verde Trail, this initiative invites the chefs to create dishes using local, organic, seasonal vegetables only. Since its inception in 2010, the first 100% Vegetarian Gourmet Bistro, Bilu Belua, has successfully been in business for a year and now a Krishna restaurant will hold its opening in a few weeks.
To have two 100% vegetarian restaurants and 90% of the others offering vegetarian options in a parilla (BBQ) loving country, famous for its beef and football, truly makes La Barra a veggi haven in South America!
