First Review by santiagovf

Lo siento, pero me parece una falta grave - Edit

Ya ha pasado dos veces, una con una amiga de Bolivia que pidió un cheesecake, varias veces preguntó si era vegano y le dijeron que sí, se lo comió y unos días después fuimos al de envigado, pidió el cheesecake y el chico que nos atendió nos dijo que no era vegano. Luego sucedió una situación similar ahora en el de envigado, la chica que atiende le dice a mi amiga que la empanada lleva queso vegano, ella la muerde y duda por el sabor, pregunta al chef y le dice que NO ES VEGANO, es queso común de vaca, me parece una falta de respeto y de seriedad terribles, yo ya me lo pienso dos veces antes de ir, espero que alguno de los encargados lea esto y solucione.

Para el pasado - Edit

Quizás de los lugares que uno más escucha cuando recién va a comenzar una dieta vegetariana o vegana, está bien para ese entonces, sin embargo la proteína de la hamburguesa puede llegar a ser un poco seca. Su Flor de Jamaica es muy rica.

Pros: Lugar sencillo pero agradable

A convenient place to eat - Edit

Lenteja Express was the only veg*n place I could find in the Poblado neighbourhood that was open later on a Monday night. It's on a fairly nice street and there's a pleasant patio. The food was good, but I agree with another reviewer that the burgers are a bit dry. Still tasty, though. My friend had the vegetarian lasagna and said it was good.

The waiter didn't speak much English so I had some trouble ordering and wound up with the wrong thing. If you don't speak Spanish, just make sure they see what you're pointing at on the menu. They did their best to help us.

It's just down the street from Verdeo, which is also nice, so you can choose either one.

Pros: Good food, Clean and cheerful, Generous portions

Cons: Burgers a bit dry

A very-very good Colombian vegan experience - Edit

The menu is short (which i find good) and includes burgers, lasagnas, beans (on Fridays), a Lebanese plate (hummus, falafel...) and so on.

I took their special burger (and it was indeed specially tasty, together with its criolla-potatoes...)

And all this was like 16,000 COP (a bit over $5 USD)

One more thing, the restaurant is in one of Medellin's trendy sectors.

Pros: Food, Service, Location
