Uninspiring but IS VEG! - Edit

Usual Taiwanese bffet fare left out, unheated,all day.There were a few VEGAN options, friedrice, fried rice noodles.
However, all the food is Veg and it's the only show in town..and for hundreds or thousands of miles.

Only real veg*n option in town - Edit

There are plenty of places that have vegetarian (though rarely vegan) options on their menus, but this is the only properly veg*n place in town.

I went there almost an hour after their stated closing time, but they still had a fair amount of food. No seats, though, so I had to take away (not sure if they do have seats during regular hours, but certainly not when I was there).

Chose a croquet, a kind of ‘veggieburger’ (where the bun was actually two veggie patties and the ‘patty’ was tomato and zucchini), and a veggie milanesa (schnitzel) in a small plastic container. Not an awful lot, but enough to do for a meal (and all finger food, so eating while walking down the street was not a problem). All three were very good. You could tell they’d been lying out for a bit, but then again I did show up an hour *after* closing, so I can hardly blame the restaurant for that.

Price was higher than I had expected at ARS 80 (about USD 5.25), but not unreasonably so, especially not considering the price level in Ushuaia in general.

The food itself as it was should earn the restaurant only three stars, but I’m adding an extra one to counteract the effect of this being an outside-hours deal.

Pros: Only proper veg*n place in Ushuaia, good food, flexible opening hours

Cons: No seating

Really happy I found this place - Edit

As others have mentioned, finding vegan food in the cold Ushuaia is almost impossible, specially considering that even in the market you might not find a big variety of produce to cook yourself based on the season.

After finding this place I managed to have several good meals without having to cook. The food quality is average and the lady is very nice. The price is very cheap.

If you come after hours you can ring the bell if the curtain is not yet closed. They will come and serve you.

Take-out only

Glad to find this still here - Edit

I first visited El Bambu in 2009, and I was glad to find that it is still here. The value for your dollar is amazing. There were quite a few products with cheese in them this time around, but still many vegan options. The woman was helpful, and the food was better than average for this style of Taiwanese take-out. I would definitely recommend a visit, and I will be back again.

Pros: Good food, Great Value, All Veg

Cons: Not 100% Vegan, No Dine in
