Great Service - Edit

I am a long-term vegan who was visiting Oaxaca with my vegan partner. We visited Bambu and the owner was very nice, knowledgeable about veganism and friendly. She has vegan children and made some great recommendations. The vegan burger and rice were very good, it was a pleasant surprise. The owner then took vegan literature from us to place on her counter. We were very pleased with this small store/restaurant and look forward to being able to return on our next visit.

Pros: Price, Location, Vegan friendly

Cons: Small

good rice cookies - Edit

I have not eaten here but bought her rice cookies available with or without sugar, I got the one without, it was delicious. There's also other produce like lentils, rice etc.

Good for vegans - Edit

After a disappointing experience at Trigo Verde Naturistas Cafe, I went here. The owner/ chef is very clued in on veganism and will tell you exactly what you can and can't have. I had lunch here which was soya meat and veggies, mole (delicious), tacos, a green salad and a drink. I bought some other items to take away so I'm not sure how much lunch was, but the whole lot was less than I expected. I'd definitely recommend giving this place a try if you're vegan.

Pros: vegan friendly, Good value, Near the ADO bus station

Cons: Closed weekends

Great little family-run spot - Edit

When first walking in, you might think that this is just an organic shop, but they have a few tables and the very friendly owner prepares some delicious specialties for sit-down meals. They make some of the best veggie "asiento" I've ever found – basically a paste of seeds and nuts to be used in place of lard in recipes. They're always roasting almonds or pumpkin seeds and making a variety of local specialties. Go in and give it a try, the owner is always happy to make special orders as well.

Pros: Friendly, Unique items, Inexpensive

Cons: A bit hard to find, Limited menu
