Tasty and hearty vegan food for a great price! - Edit

This small restaurant served up yummy chickpea stews, veganized tortilla, seitan and veggies among other things. Everything was delicious, portions were big and price was great. Highly recommend!

Einfach, günstig aber soooooo lecker - Edit

Während unserem Aufenthalt auf Teneriffa besuchten wir gleich zwei Mal das Somos lo que comemos.
Ein einfaches Restaurant mit einer kleinen Speisekarte. Ein komplettes Tagesmenue sowie einige hausgemachte Spezialitäten finden sich darauf.
Alles was wir im Restaurant serviert bekamen war frisch zubereitet und lecker. Nicht verpassen sollte man den selbst gemachten Seitan und die traumhaften Desserts.
Wir besuchten in der vergangenen Woche viele vegane Restaurants auf Teneriffa und dürfen sagen, dass dieses Restaurant was ganz besonderes war.

Pros: Kleiner Familienbetrieb , Sehr freundlich

Cheap and delicious - Edit

It was sometimes hard to find vegan restaurants or with vegan options in Canary Island. But thanks to happy cow I found this amazing vegan restaurant in La Laguna and it was delicious. You eat really well and cheap. The potato salad, the seitan or the soup, everything was good (except the desert which was not fantastic). I highly recommend it !

Pros: Delicious food, Friendly staff, Well located

Cons: The deserts

All vegan, nice atmosphere - Edit

I ate there twice, and I was happy with the quality of food and the vibe at family run business. I wouldn't say the dishes are light, but knowing that it's all vegan makes up for a lot. No one said vegan is equal healthy.

Bland watery soup - Edit

Had my hopes high after reading the other comments, but was disappointed. We had the soup, that looked gray and consisted of vegetable broth, cabbage and a few white beans. Feels like something you throw together in 5 minutes when there is nothing left in the fridge. Not a good advertisement for vegan food. Sure, it was cheap, but it wouldn't hurt to include something more filling and pleasing to the eye.

Pros: Good that there are vegan places in tenerife.

Worth Searching For! - Edit

A little hard to find but glad we did! Located in a modern shopping passage where you wouldn't expect to find a vegan restaurant.
It was great! The two serving us were super friendly and despite limited English they were both enthusiastic and helpful. My girlfriend ordered the menu of the day (starter, main and dessert for €6.50!!) and they prepared something for me not on the menu, a lovely seitan with home made chips.
Prices are great, the food came quick and I'd recommend it to anyone!

Pros: Quick service, Great prices, Helpful staff

Cons: Hard to find, No wifi

Fantastic and Special Vegan Restaurant - Edit

Myself and my husband were visiting this week from Ireland, for business. We found this wonderful restaurant via google search engine. We came back two evenings in a row as it was so fantastic. The food was exceptional - tasted wonderful. The croquettes, stew with chickpeas and tortilla ... just perfect. The prices are incredibly reasonable. The man who runs the restaurant seemed so nice, authentic and kind. We were delighted that there were animal welfare charity tins on the counter. It was an absolute joy finding this remarkable place.

Pros: Food, Animal Welfare Charity Tins, Owner

Cons: No cons

nice place for good vegan lunch! - Edit

We tried the place around spanish lunch time (14:30h) and ordered the "menu del día" which basically consists of a bowl of soup, main and a small desert. Everything was quite tasty and one could tell that only fresh ingredients where used. Simple but very, very good! 100% vegan, good energy and value for money! You get the daily menu for EUR 6,50 which is a pretty good deal for the quality of the food. Try!

Pros: nice place, very good food, cheap

Nice little restaurant - Edit

While on holiday on Tenerife I wanted to check out this restaurant and I'm glad I did. Friendly people, a little shy about speaking English but we managed very well in the end. The food was really good and cheap.

Pros: Good food, inexpensive

Good food and a good price - Edit

It was really nice to find this place. The staff was friendly and the food was simple and good. They have the menú del día which included a soup, main dish and a dessert for 6,50€. For breakfast they had really amazing seitan sandwhiches and Spanish-style tortillas along with fresh orange juice.

Pros: Good food, Good price, Nice staff

Cons: None

Finally some vegan Canarian food? - Edit

The restaurant is a little bit hidden, in a pathway very close to the old town of La Laguna.

Seriously, I am amazed by the flavors of the dishes. The owners really have managed to create vegan dishes that really reflect the original Canarian and Spanish flavors.

The restaurant was opened recently, therefore they still are decorating and rearranging things.

I had a really nice chat with one of the owners. He has a lot of good ideas and I love that he's adapting his menu to the seasonal and regional fruits and vegetables. It's more sustainable and that allows him to make prices that everyone can afford. He wants to offer healthy food to everyone.

Pros: ensaladilla rusa, chocolate and fig dessert

Cons: chairs are a little bit uncomfortable

first vegan experience on Tenerife - Edit

I went to have lunch with an omnivore friend just a few days after the opening. The couple who run this place, Soto and Macu, are very nice and helpful with everything. One can really feel that it's like a dream for them to run this small restaurant and create it in their own style. The atmosphere is pleasent, even though it's in a passway which means the outdoor is not so nice. The menu for EUR 6.50 consists of a first plate which was on this day on of two vegetable soups to choose from, a second plate which was again two choices and fruits for desert. The soups were very delicious, we tried both of them, a carrot and a pumpkin soup. Then as a main we had once soya strips in sauce and the other seitan stripes in sauce accompanied by potatoe wedges. It was good, not so inventive though. My non vegan friend liked it though as it was new for her. We shared a spanish tortilla besides that and that was amazing, as it's the first tortilla I eat after being for months in the country! I went another time and ate some sort of stew with chickpeas, seitan and veggies and that was awesome too. I can really recommend the restaurant to vegan and non-vegans alike as the care about good and healthy food and as they progress the menu gets wider and plates more inventive I think.

Pros: inexpensive, vegan alternative, attractive for non-vegans

Cons: lot of soya and wheat products
