First Review by Zambezikid

On the expensive side but still nice - Edit

So this place is a mostly Lebanese inspired restaurant that does offer vegan options. It was just a few minutes walking distance away from where I was staying in the Bocagrande area. We started with baba ganoush as an appatizer which was good. I had their "Vegetarian" main dish which had lentil fried rice, falafel patties, a little hummus and something else I don't remember haha (sorry). It was all delicious but the falafel patties were prettt dry :/ It was also pretty expensive compared to other places. I was there on a date and we paid almost 100,000 COP (around $35) for 2 main dishes, an appatizer and 2 bottles of water. Sadly, didn't think to take any pics cause I was in a hurry :/ I give this place 3.5 stars.

Pros: Has vegan options, Beautiful place, Good food

Cons: Pricey

map has wrong location - Edit

true, only worth noting this place for any vegans starving in the área (as there are better and more affordable options in this city).

The only vegan thing on the menú was a plate with: lentils, some average tabbouli, a few fried falafels, a tiny (very tiny - like 2 bites tiny) thing with hummus, oh and 2 cracker-sized pcs of pita. Even their main hummus dish has "res" (meat) in it.

Also, don´t rely on the map location above. Yes M Cocina is on 6th, but not way down in that península thing. it is up very near the main Ave. San Martin

Pros: has falafels

Cons: too expensive, limited options, average food

Okay but not a wide choice - Edit

This place is ok if you happen to be staying in Bocagrande, but I don't think it merits a taxi ride to it if you are staying in the Old Town.

It has the usual Arabic fare of tabulleh, hummus, fatush, falafel etc, but not a lot else if you are vegan.

And at ~USD 20 for a full plate of the stuff, it's not cheap either. Shame their stuffed vine leaves and stuffed cabbage leaves are both premade and meat infused. :(

BTW: Note this place has changed its name to: Restaurante Arabe

Pros: Alright if you stay in Bocagrande

Cons: Limited choices, Bit pricey
