Friendly staff went the extra mile - Edit

Food was amazing, but leaving this review because the staff was so amazingly nice to my non English speaking tourist self. After I realized that Google didn't really work with the regional dialect the manager came to meet me and worked out my order from my terrible attempts at Spanish and his shy but competent English. When I paid I took my change and was out the door, turns out I had forgotten about 3 Sol (they had gone in the back for more change and didn't understand that they had tried to say wait a minute). I get a full 2 minutes away when I hear someone behind me yelling 'mister' and it was the counter girl who chased me down to deliver 3 Sol change. I felt so dumb and apologized. She laughed and thanked me for eating there again.

Pros: nicest staff in Lima, small store to buy vegan staples

Comida peruana versión vegana - Edit

La comida es bastante buena y con precios razonablemente bajos. Así que es una buena opción si no se tiene mucho dinero. Tienen distintas opciones de menú y, aunque el nombre de los platos haga dudar un poco sobre si en verdad son veganos (arroz con mariscos, por ejemplo) se trata solo del nombre, pues el plato sí es vegano. Además de la comida, ofrecen productos naturales como maca, spirulina y más. No obstante llegué a ver que uno de esos productos era de coral y que algunos otros venían en cápsulas (podrían ser de celulosa o gelatina), pero probablemente con un poco de información puedan dejar de venderlos.

Pros: Comida típica peruana versión vegana, Precios bastante bajos, Porciones buenas de comida que sirven rápido.

Cons: El local no era muy bonito., Había bulla que venía de la avenida., Venden escasos productos naturales que no son vega

Comida Deliciosa y Barata - Edit

Uno de mis lugares favoritos para llenarme con comida vegana deliciosa en la ciudad de Lima. El menú de 10-12 soles es incomparable! Y los postres son muy ricos y a precios económicos. Todos deben de ir a Golden Food para probar la comida, hecha con amor y sin animales

UPDATE: Definitely one of the best reastaurants in Lima, and its ALL VEGAN. You can take the healthy route with a salad appetizer and a bean and rice dish, or you can go all out and get causa rellena with tacu tacu for your entrée and a piece of cheesecake for dessert, depends on what you're craving.

Delicious and cheap - Edit

This is not a super elegant restaurant is more like a typical peruvian restaurant that offers menu that you find at any street, which is not bad unless you like fancy places and is good because it can get to more peruvian people!. It has a good amount of tables and sells vegan products such as maca,quinoa,soja, etc. and some desserts as well.
Now the food is really nice, what I like the most is that they make traditional peruvian food with the exact same taste but vegan!! so it's amazing.
The only bad thing I would mention is the service. The waitresses may forget to bring you the food included in your menu like the dessert or the drink, or they may not even notice you are there to take your order. However, once you order the food comes quite fast and it's really good and also cheap!,
The location I think it's great, specially because it is the light in a place surrounded by all kinds of meat restaurants lol, and you don't have to walk a lot to get there from the Javier Prado (one of the main avenues in Lima).
It's great!.

Pros: Food, cheap and served fast, Sells vegan products, Location

Cons: Could improve service

Cheap and plentiful - Edit

This eatery, which shares the location with a shop selling vegan products, offers a fixed all-vegan menu that changes daily. When I went I had a large bowl of minestrone soup followed by a plate of beans, rice and tofu, all accompanied by a glass of cold tea. The food was fine (although the combination of the three ingredients in the main course gave my digestion something to think about a few hours later!), it arrived promptly and there was a lot of it. For all of the above I think I paid 10 soles, which is something like €3.50 - I'd probably have paid more if I'd bought the ingredients and made it myself at home! If they don't offer the most exciting fare, that's OK with me for that price.

As for the local area, it's true that this isn't the most upmarket part of the city, and I might think twice about going there on my own after dark, but Lince (the district) is a busy place with a lot of passersby, and even as a lone foreign female I didn't feel especially unsafe at teatime in summer.

Pros: Vegan, Filling, Cheap

Cons: Unexciting

A vegan meal that will make you replete for the day. - Edit

I‘ve visited Golden Food in June 2016

This is a very simple cafeteria with a lunch set that changes every day.
I found the food to be tasty, but the portions were way too large for me (you can ask for a “doggy bag”).
The atmosphere is that of a typical Peruvian cafeteria, however the service was nice.
I found it to be very cheap, especially considering the amount served.
Besides the lunch menu there are also other snacks and desserts available.

Pros: tasty food, good selection

Cons: none

Great peruvian food - Edit

After having a hard time trying to find this place, my girlfriend and I were able to located it after asking a taxi driver about the adress. It turns out that the map here in happycow was showing a different place in the same street but the restaurant was 10 blocks away.
Anyway, we took a cab and found it in 10 minutes.

As in many peruvian restaurants, the course changes everyday.
I had potato with rocotto (peruvian chilli) sauce (see the picture) and another lomo saltado made with seitan.

Although it sounds the same, it's awesome how the peruvians can make simple dishes taste amazing.

Yet, the owner of the place was very kind and I think this place is 100% vegan.

Pros: great food, inexpensive, nice staff

bakery & store - Edit

I visited this establishment at 7pm on a Tuesday night. They close at 8pm. The neighborhood is not great, but its not too far from a nice hotel (Westin Grand) though. It is not a restaurant. They have store items, premade vegan sausage, and bakery items - like vegan apple pie, vegan almond butter bread, etc.. Very cheap. 3 soles for one slice of the almond butter bread. Needless to say though, I did not feel comfortable in the neighborhood and took mine to go. There are a few tables and chairs, but no dinner items to order. The woman behind the counter did not speak english, all items were Vegan though.

Pros: Vegan, Bakery, inexpensive

Cons: bad neighborhood, Spanish only
