not pure vegan - Edit

this is rather a strange place if you are looking for vegan food. the menu only lists carnivorous stuff with some vegetarian options. you have to ask for vegan stuff. this is not a vegan place, and bistro vegano is not the name of it. it is called el rapido. and it is not that fast as this might imply.
the spinach lasagna (served in a cardboard box lid) had a good taste though.

Pros: vegan options, interesting interious

Cons: a meat place, can take a while to get served

OMG - Edit

Also mal für alle deutschsprachigen Veganer die sich in Budapest verlaufen haben, man kann da schon was veganes essen. Aaaaabeer, sollte man das wirklich tun???

Seitdem ich dieses Lokal besucht habe gehen mir viele Fragen durch den Kopf. Als aller erstes, "warum?" Warum bin ich dahin gegangen und warum machen die das?

Draußen steht ein Schild, " yes, we can vegan" Aber was bedeutet das? Ich bin ratlos...

Ich habe auf Empfehlung des Wirts die vegane BBQ Plate bestellt. Bekommen habe ich, Kartoffelecken (irgendwie im Feuer geröstet), BBQ Sauce, 2 Scheiben im Feuer gerösteten Seitan mit roten Zwiebeln und zwei Scheiben Tofu Natur im Feuer geröstet mit Zucchini und Paprika oben drauf. Das alles wurde noch mit etwas Salz und Pfeffer gepimpt und schon war mein Dinner angerichtet.

Vermisst habe ich, eine gewisse Kreativität die man auch schmecken kann, etwas Besonderes was einem gut in Erinnerung bleibt. Gesucht habe ich den Grund warum das ein Bistro sein soll. Bekommen habe ich, eine kulinarische Ohrfeige.

Die haben 48 Sorten Tequila. Sollen die sich doch "Tequila Bar" nennen. Dann wäre die Welt in Ordnung. Warum muss man sich mit sowas den Ruf versauen? Das Ambiente ist gut, rusikal mexikanisch....

Aber vielleicht ist es so ein Laden wie bei "From Dusk Till Dawn"? Dass die um Mitternacht
zu Vampire werden und alle Veganer auffressen die sich dahin verlaufen haben. Das würde auf jeden Fall so einiges erklären....

Pros: keine Vorteile

Cons: schmeckt nicht. lieblos gemacht. kreativlos

Not quite vegan place - Edit

This place is a little bit difficult to find because it's hidden on a narrow street. It doesn't say Bistro Vegano but some "El Rapido Grill" so at first I thought I'm not in the right place, only the blackboard where was written "Yes, we have vegan!" somehow convinced me to go there. The waiter was nice but his English was a little bit weak and he couldn't explain to me what certain vegan meals cointained in detail. The menu contained a few vegan meals but I still wasn't convinced that I can be sure that the meal will be 100% vegan. The restarurant was placed downstairs but the whole place upstairs and downstairs was a little bit chaotic and looked dirty and old. Eventually we ordered vegan lasagna and chilli con carne. The late one was quite good but lasagna with spinach sauce was a bit without any taste and there was no salt when I needed it. So I left the place quite dissapointed, so I wouldn't recommend this place to a strict vegan like myself but to someone who just wants to try vegan food and prefers "street fast food".

Pros: friendly staff, good value , vegan and non-vegan kitchens seperated

Cons: not all vegan , ambiance, location

speciel hours for vegans? - Edit

We just arrived to the town, late in the evening. Most of the vegan places to eat were closed, so we went to this place really hungry, just to find out that the kitchen were closed for vegan options at 8 o clock!!
Did'nt get any explenation to this weird rule.

Later on our trio, we lived right across the street, so we went back another day, in the mood for tequila and tacos!
They were sold out of tacos, so we ordered other vegan mexican dishes, all for were tasteless and flavourless. At least the tequila was good, and the downstairs room was cool decorated.
