Never disappoints!

I love this very local and authentic place in my neighbourhood!😍 I enjoy going here a lot! The vegan mondongo and ajiaco is to die for and the service very friendly. I've also brought several non vegan friends and they loved it to. Flavourful colombian menu del día!😋

Sabores cercanos

Cuando uno se hace vegano es difícil no alejarse de los sabores con los que se creció. Este lugar es lo más cercano a comer en la casa de la infancia.

Pros: Precios asequible

This place is now open for dine in. It’s a cute place with indoor-outdoor areas. Very good and timely service plus just amazing food. I loved their mondongo. Cannot wait to try their other daily specials.

Need to make better food.

So sorry to say this as we drove from the other side of town to try the food but they need to innovate the menu. Food was very basic, lacking flavour, nothing innovative. Pretty disappointed.

The Best vegan food I’ve tried in Medellin

I was very surprised to find a place like this! A friend of mine recommended me to visit the place and I must admit that the food was very good. The place it’s a bit noisy ‘cause it’s by the street but the general vibe is awesome -and the service really attentive. I tried the ranchera burger and it was pretty tasty and ended up very satisfied, it really tasted like meet! It’s the best vegan burger in Medellin!

Pros: Reasonable price, Location (easy to arrive), Nice decoration

Cons: There’s alway people, sometimes you have to wait, Apple Pay is not accepted

You know what they put on french fries in Holland?

I wonder how Samuel L. Jackson would react to the combinations served at Medellin El Vegano Andante. Burrito with large pieces of avocado on top, frie (one) from taro, two chops and sprouts a bit surprised me, but spaghetti in Neapolitan style with chops, frie (of course one) from taro, ketchup and a strange salad made mainly of sprouts - knocked me down on the shoulders. Interestingly I was also asked if I would like to do eat it with mustard. Wow. The food itself is not bad. Spaghetti for the fact that it was prepared in a country where there are only few good Italian restaurants was quite good. Same cutlets. The poorness of salads is a bit disappointing, and I got used to the tasteless soups in Colombia. The interior does not encourage for a longer stay, but it is probably not the purpose of the place. The idea is to pay 12,000 COP for a lunch set, eat and forget. On the other hand... I will not forget these combinations for a long time...

Pros: OK quality and price

Cons: Weird combinations

very good food

I have been there today for a lunch and it was delicious and so cheap. You can choose between 2 menus (its obviously very fresh products) and I got a typical Colombian vegan dish (soup with mushroom and potatoes - delicious vegetables with rice - avocado - galette) and a fruit juice. It costs me 4$. Service was very nice too. I highly recommend you to go there for a lunch

Fantastic food and great service

That was an outstanding experience. They offer menus, which contain a soup, a main dish and a drink. The food is rich and delicious and we liked it a lot. Very well made, huge portions and 10.000 COP are more than reasonable for it! We'll definitely go back.

Pros: Very delicious food, huge portions, cheap

Cons: located on the main street

Vegan feast

If you're traveling through Medellin's Terminal del Sur, take a detour to this place! We were impressed by the choice, quality, care and price of the food - 9500 for a choice of 3 juices, 2 soups (with delicious veganaise), salad, choice of 3 mains and 2 desserts.
