First Review by theveganbastard

Go here for Iced Cafe and great food! - Edit

Went there for lunch, didn't try any of their sandwiches/burgers, but shared a daily menu which consisted of typical bread with pebre (a salsa with tomatoes, onions, cilantro), a small salad and rustic potato mash, veggies (zucchini and eggplant) with tofu, tomatosauce and a basil leave. The Café Helado was supposed to contain vanilla icecream, yet I could only find tons of whipped cream - still very very delicious! The oreo shake would be better with icecream instead of ice (frozen water) in my opinion. For desert we shared a lemon pie which was very sweet and yummy, strawberry sorbet and vanilla icecream (sugar-free and with rice milk). Didn't care that much for the vanilla icecream, but the strawberry sorbet was great. I would come back, if I had more time in Santiago, but I also want to try the other many vegan options here!

Pros: nice atmosphere, cheap daily menu, good value

a bit disappointing - Edit

I have read so many good reviews about vegan bunker and was excited to taste their food. I enjoyed but not that much: food is just ok. We had two different burgers and two slice of cakes: bread was so soft it just disintegrated with the sauces, burger was hard and cold inside. The pie’s crust was really hard and it separates from the fillings. Mmmh ... there are a lot of better options in Santiago.

Pros: vegan

Cons: ok food, basic quality

Feels like home, and tastes even better. - Edit

I had the Aji burger which is tempura zucchini in a home made bun with very tasty creamy fillings, it was almost like a thick bechemal sauce layer in the burger (I added the vegan cheese so it may have been that) and the Vegan Revolution juice.
I'm only for 4 days but I will be going back. This is only day 1 for me in Santiago, so I don't know the prices to really compare but I don't even care because the food was amazing!
For Melbournians, I challenge you to get a better Vegan burger at home. I could have been in Brunswick.
The feel of the place and the staff were great too, my Spanish is poor but I met the manager (or owner) and she was friendly and grateful for my compliments.

Pros: Multiple burger options (soy and plant based) , Ethical and believe in their cause, Enthusiastic and friendly staff

Expensive and food ok - Edit

I was so exited of going there for all the good comments I heard about it, but of course I didn't know the prices. When I first checked the menu I wanted to take everything but it was extremely expensive, so I ended up taking just a oreo milkshake and it was just some cookies with soy milk, nothing special and way too pricy.

Pros: Vegan

Cons: Expensive, Not best quality

First option, always - Edit

If you want to eat vegan u must go to VB not only because they were like the first ones to really go into vegan all the way but because they were really brave and go for it, so good for them, try everything because it's always good, fresh and really vegan and the best part is that is cheaper than any other so, lets go there

Pros: Tasty, Abundant, Cheap

Cons: When you want to pay it's really slow , Space, they need a bigger space, They should have more options

The cakes are a must try!!!

Pros: good size servings, amazing detests , yummy smoothie

Cons: a bit out of the way

Reaally cool! - Edit

Nice political and antispecist drawings on the wall, cool service, cheap price (3000$) and good vibes.
The burgers were very good, especially when you add more sauce as it lacked a bit at first. Very rich (we were starving as we came in and it was almost hard to finish)
The deserts looked very nice, although the one we tried was a little bit disappointing (not bad, but could definitely have had more flavour).
Very nice experience, highly recommended.
:)

Pros: cheap, antispecist place, very nice location in barrio italia

perfect vegan'junk' food - Edit

We had an insane black bean nacho burger! Bean patty was unusual and crispy on the outside. With proper fries and mustard it was great, and a good price 3000.

We also tried the dark chocolate raspberry tart, which was so good I questioned its vegan chcooclate. Also the raspberry muffin we took home for breakfast.

Lovely setting light and airy inside and good helpful staff

Fyi no wifi so can't go and catch up on work.

Great place - Edit

Loved the space, first thing, with much light and very comfortable and nice, and the food was super tasty.
I'm happy I was taken there by a chilean friend, and I understand quite well the place has become an unofficial HQ of the Santiago vegan community.

Pros: Nice space, Great choice, Tasty food

Cons: Not so big portions

All vegan - Edit

A number of tasty burgers and meals to choose from. Lots of cakes and desserts on offer. Friendly staff. About a 10 minute walk from Santa Isabel metro station.

okish - Edit

Supposedly the new location is an improvement, and the atmosphere is pretty nice. Unfortunately I was not really impressed with the burger I had (deep fried bean mash-ish), which was except for the guacamole too dry, and from the first vegan restaurant in Chile I would have expected food made with more experience. And with more love.
After my burger I didn't feel like trying the cakes. Which is a first for me.

On a final note I must say that I don't mind getting up and getting my own cutlery, but that it helps more with a canteen feeling than that of a restaurant. A feeling which is enhanced by the food.

yum! - Edit

Fill your vegan soul, and belly, with this neighborhood gem. Located in a residential area that isn't too far from the tourist scene. This delicious stop will fill you up on the cheap. Part self-serve, part sit-down restaurant; the service is good, but it's not full service. Expect to get your own salad and silverware. Animal rights messages are artfully placed around the restaurant, with a chalkboard to add your own. The food was tasty and filling. Plus they had an assortment of vegan desserts! Absolutely worth the trip!

Bueno - Edit

Pretty good vegan junk food in a place that looks a bit like a cross between a children's nursery and a DIY art gallery. Which is a good thing in my book. Worth a visit if you're in Santiago.

Pros: Friendly , Lots of stuff to look at on the walls, Inexpensive

Vegan bunker of deliciousness! - Edit

We travelled to santiago 4 years ago and there were hardly any vegan much less vegetarian options. My how things have changed! We ordered the completo Italiano which was good but the sandwich that had tofu wrapped in nori and then fried like tempura was excellent. Deserts were divine. Best tasting flan cheesecake I've ever had. Creamy caramelly Nom Nom deliciousness. Crust was delicious white cake. Additionally the decor was bright sunny and had cute animal characters everywhere.

Pros: Deserts!!! , Vegan versions of Chilean food , Inexpensive specials

Great Vegan Food - Edit

I've eaten here many times and I always enjoy what they offer. Their new restaurant is bigger and the atmosphere is very nice. Their "menu of the day" at lunch is a reasonable price, interesting, and tasty. Also, I never leave without some kind of dessert; they're excellent.

Pros: Great Price, Lots of variety, Large selection of desserts

Cons: Limited Parking, Only accepts cash, Closed on Mondays

inexpensive - Edit

For reasons of job I ate there almost every day. But let go because in the site serves an elderly lady with very bad bad mood. It is noted that no education and he needs to go to the psychologist because how often mistreated staff working is not a normal person. As far as I can strictly culinary say the food is very ralación to correct what they charge for it. If the place is vegan 100% i have my doubts. When asked for a coffee and I noticed that I served him a jar marked "Nescafe". unforgivable! If your idea of ​​eating is fill your stomach for little money this is your place, but if you want something more than carbohydrates, you must looking for a better place.
