Fantastic wontons - Edit

Some of the best food we had on our trip to CR. Owner was super friendly and helpful, explaining the menu and offering to customize any dish. We tried veg ceviche and tofu saltada as recommended in other reviews.
The tofu was very good. The real stars of the show however were the wontons. Unbelievably delicious. Wish I was eating them now!

excellent vegetarian Chinese Peruvian cuisine - Edit

We were so excited to find a place that really does a lot of vegetarian cuisine that we could adapt to be vegan. Get the vegetarian ceviche and the tofu saltada. Both are excellent. There are many many vegetarian options , easily denoted on the menu by a leaf.

Peruvian veg friendly food - Edit

This is one of the best meals we have had since arriving in Costa Rica. It is located in La Fortuna- google maps has it in the correct location.
Our favorite dish was the
Tofu Saltudo that included potato wedges tofu and tomatoes with a savory sauce. The tofu was amazing.

We also loved the Kam Lu Wantan for 5000 colones.
It consisted of three huge wontons stuffed with vegetables topped with a sweet and sour sauce. It wasn't vegan though as there were eggs in the dough.

The other dish we tried was the Causa Vegetariano for 3800 colones. It was spicy cold mashed potatoes stuffed with vegetables. It was ok but I prefer my potatoes hot.

Pros: Great service, Veg items marked on menu

Deliciously vegan friendly and just plain friendly - Edit

Everything we ordered was super flavorful and delicious! (first things first) I found this place here on Happycow.com and enjoyed it very much so I figured it was time to join and add my own input. We were parking out front and the owner ran out to make sure we didn't damage our tires-he'd apparently been working on fixing the concrete and had covered it up with something. Mind you there was no way to know we were parking for his restaurant so he was just helping because he's a nice person. This place serves 2 types of traditional Peruvian cuisine, and for all the main dishes there is a vegan option. After these dishes the menu is categorized by type of meat (beef, fowl, fish, etc), with a vegetarian section as well. We were worried about ordering the wantan dish because they were fried, but the owner, also our waiter, who continued to be very polite and attentive, ensured that they have a separate fryer for vegetarian dishes. The kitchen is next to the dining room, and the walls are glass, so you can see the two different fryers and also that they have nothing to hide! Also the food was very reasonable priced. To sum up...super nice owner/chef/waiter, scrumptious food, plenty of veggie options, great price. My boyfriend and I highly recommend this place to any vegetarian or vegan visiting the La Fortuna area.

Pros: plenty of vegan options w/separate fryer, Very pleasant and attentive staff, Delicious and affordable

Delicious and super vegan friendly - Edit

Notice they have moved!! I don't know if the current address is correct. We found the correct address on trip advisor. At their old address there's now just a simple soda, so make sure you arrive at the right place.
Great food, traditional peruvian. Every dish has a vegan version. The owner went as far as promising the vegan deep-fried dishes are fried using separate oil and frier.

Pros: Super vegan friendly, Friendly staff
