good enfrijoladas - Edit

Best enfrijoladas we had while in Mexico City (not that we tried them all). But surprisingly not a lot of vegan options. Big plus for us was the early opening hours (7 am!!) since we had a morning flight.

mala presentación de la comida - Edit

Hay un tema de mala presentación.
Vaso roto, la comida pasada de cocción.
La sopa tenía que ir mejor al blender para que el mismo gusto se vea bien.

vegan pastries! - Edit

To begin, I should say I did not eat dinner here. I was on my way to a taqueria with my non-vegan family when I saw it. I'd seen it listed here on Happy cow so I ducked inside just to see what it was like.

I noticed the pastry shelves looked good, and was so pleased to see a whole shelf of vegan pastries! (It's a vegetarian buffet, so I expected the desserts to have dairy in them. It was a pleasant surprise!) I bought two and put them in my bag to eat later. One was a shortbread cookie with dark chocolate drizzled over the top. It was very good - barely sweet and tasted like almond meal. The other was a palmier type pastry that I ate on the plane the next morning and it was dynamite.

Great Menu & Friendly Service - Edit

There are many vegan options. Our waiter was very kind, spoke little english but made up for it in charm.

Definitely order a fresh juice, they are cheap and tasty! They have vegan sour cream and cheese which is a fun topping for traditional Mexican dishes.

Pros: Many clearly labeled vegan options, Great service, Tasty food

Tasty Enchiladas - Edit

Ordered enchiladas from a la carte menu. They tasted great, but they weren't served hot, more like cool to luke warm. Thought it was strange considering they arrived quite quickly.

Ordered a juice that was very good, and the complimentary bread was tasty.

Sirvieron gelatina (de grenetina). NO ES VEGETIARIANO. Cocina está hecha un asco, muy sucia. - Edit

Solía ir mucho a ese lugar. Su menú corrido siempre tiene alguna opción vegana. No muy rico, pero aceptable. Después de varias idas me tocó que sirvieran gelatina en el buffet. Osea no es ni vegetariano ni hindú. Después en otra ocasión al servirme el postre, encontré una cucaracha en el plato. Tal vez por la pena nunca me dieron una disculpa. Solo hace falta voltear a la cocina para darse cuenta que eso iba a pasar algún día (y seguirá pasando). El lugar no es ni la sombra de lo que fué algún día. Sobrevive por los godinez de reforma que solo van por comodidad. Pésimos meseros, la mayoría, y muchos antipáticos.

Pros: muy bien ubicado.

Cons: Servicio antipatico, malo. Cocina sucia y asqueros

Delicioso sabor, pocas opciones veganas - Edit

Es muy rico y están dispuestos a veganizar algunos platillos, a mi me hicieron pancakes sin leche ni huevo y los amé por eso. Pero todo el pan tiene huevo y leche :(

Pros: Buen precio, Rico sazón, Buenas porciones

Cons: Pocas opciones veganas

Not the best, there are better places around - Edit

We went there for Sunday brunch (90 pesos) and had the buffet. I wouldn't recommend it. It was all pretty tasteless. Most of the time they were out of items and you had to wait quite a long time for them to replace. We initially wanted to order from the menu but the server was not very friendly and did not speak English. We were not offered an English menu which would have been very helpful since we didn't know what some of the items were. We've tried many other places around the city and they were much better than here. Forget anything vegan here, there's nothing vegan. Find one the excellent vegan places in Condesa or Roma if you want good vegan food.

Pros: Affordable

Cons: Poor service, Tasteless Food

O.K. - Edit

Wasn't the worst but certainly not the best. The service was slow and the food very basic plus they don't label vegan options nor did they know when I asked... All in all it was just O.K.

A Godsend! - Edit

Going to Mexico for vegetarians is challenging to say the least with all food being cooked in lard but Yug was a godsend! The food here is excellent and at affordable prices too. They offer local Mexican cuisine such as enchiladas, huevos rancheros, quesadillas, mole and a fake meat platter that was simply stunning. European dishes are also available. The staff were also very helpful and most could speak English with menus available in English if you ask. Yug also offer Mexican style breakfasts as well as other options such as cereal, fruits and yogurts. Jug also has a shop selling Fresh cakes and bread, soy pieces. Check out the buffet upstairs too.

Pros: Excellent Food, Good Value, Nice Staff

Good breakfast - Edit

Happened to go in for breakfast on Mother's Day. Decided to opt out of ordering from the menu and take the special buffet. It was full of traditional Mexican breakfast items. I was glad to get to try them all, and it was such a relief to know I could eat everything there! They used a lot of different types of TVP (typical of most veg restaurants in Mexico), and there was a ton of fresh fruit. The service was courteous and kind.

Huge Disappointment - Edit

The service was awful. It took around 15 mins to be helped. There were numerous cheese and meat items on the menu. We went for brunch and the only vegan option was a fruit salad that I could get at any restaurant. Not worth it at all. We left.

Mexican Lunch - Edit

Busy Vegetarian restaurant in Mexico City. Since I went at 3 pm the buffet didn't look to appealing. So I sat downstairs and ordered the vegetarian tacos with soya, guacamole & refried beans. Delicious!

Good food - Edit

I went here for lunch on a Sunday afternoon and I found the food to be good. It was 90 pesos for the set meal, although the price can vary depending on the options you choose. Came with drink, soup, salad, main plate, bread basket and dessert. Overall a very good meal and it was nice that they were open on Sunday. The waiter was friendly too.

Pros: Flavors, Attention to nutritional value

Okay Place, Lost on Vegan - Edit

This restaurant is decent. The lunch is better than breakfast as far as vegan options- at least I think it is. The waiters all seem to have no idea what vegan means.

I visited 3 or 4 times during my stay in Mexico because there aren't many options for vegans there. Each time I had a different waiter. One had an idea what vegan meant and was helpful. Everyone else was baffled and completely unhelpful in terms of substitutions.

Pros: Prices, Space, Friendly Staff

Cons: No clue what vegan means, Almost no vegan breakfast options

Not bad, not great - Edit

Decent place. If you're vegetarian you should be set. But if you're vegan, not as much. Almost every dish (in fact i think every dish) has eggs or cheese in it. Not as part of it, but as a main part of it. They're willing to leave it out, but then you're stuck with a lack luster meal. Also for a vegetarian place they seemed to have no clue what a vegan is.

Went there a few times because the coffee was decent and there just aren't many veggie options in Mexico City. But with each waiter had to explain what being vegan is. The food was okay, not great.

I wouldn't say don't go, but doesn't have to be a top option.

Pros: Vegetarian, Good Coffee, Not bad price

Cons: No clue what a vegan is, Food is just okay

fresh juice, authentic Mexican vegan-accommodating breakfast - Edit

I just went here for breakfast. My friend and I each got a juice, and we split the one vegan bread/pastry (pictured), and the enchiladas made vegan. A filling breakfast and reasonably priced. It was good. My friend speaks spanish and I do not and he verified with the waiter that the one pastry was vegan. A nice start to our trip!

Pros: vegan pastry, vegan enchildas, juice!

Cons: limited english, heavy on the omelette offerings , centrally located

Not impressed - Edit

I went here based on the positive reviews but was severely underwhelmed. Our dishes were heavy of faux meats with limited flavour. In fact, my dish was mainly cold, oily and dry faux meat with corn tacos. My friend had a bun with sauce and cheese, that honestly was not that appealing. Perhaps their buffet is better, but we arrived too early. It only runs 1-5pm everyday.

Vegetarian Mecca in Mexico - Edit

Excellent, friendly service and a lot on offer but it is really a great place for Vegetarians to try more traditional Mexican dishes. I seriously got stuck into a soy strip hot pot which included whole baby onions and cactus. Yug was also offering Mexico's seasonal speciality of stuffed (soy) mince peppers draped in walnut sauce and sprinkled with pomegranate seed. All very exotic. I did not realise there was a buffet on another floor...An excuse to get back to Mexico City oneday soon.

Good vegan lunch - Edit

I had the lunch menu of the day which was fruit, bread, mole verde with soya meat and veggie rice as the main, and more fruit in a sweet syrup for dessert. I also had a juice. The meal was good and I especially liked the mole verde, which I had not tried before. However, the staff could have been a bit more attentive. The waiter walked off while I was trying to ask him what was vegan and I had to wait til he came back.

Overall the menu looked really good, and I wish I tried the buffet upstairs too, but I ran out of time in Mexico City.

Pros: Lots of options, Good value

Great Vegetarian Plcae, Good for Vegans - Edit

We liked the Torta Azteca, Tacos al Pastor and Molcajete Mexicano with cheese served on the side for the non-vegans in our group. Fresh salsa was good too. We took leftovers home and some carnivores enjoyed the flavors too! Friendly service, nice experience.

Pros: Tasty, Vegan friendly
