Vegetarians Have Fun Too
It’s hard to imagine that the steak mecca of South America also knows how to make veggies happy, but as hard as it may seem there’s plenty of choice to spoil everyone’s palate.
Carnivores and veggie-lovers coexist in perfect balance in a city that‘s learned to embrace both: the meat-eaters and the healthy eating movement.
We’re not talking about menus incorporating a few vegetarian friendly options, we’re saying that veggies have a home here. A wide, thriving, vegetarian-friendly home indeed and we bring you proof.
| BIO : SOLO ORGANICO |Bio is a vegetarian restaurant that brightens the corner of Humboldt and Guatemala, in Palermo Hollywood. A true pioneer of the organic movement in Buenos Aires and a much-beloved spot among the Palermitan neighbours.
A paradise for vegan soup lovers and homemade bread addicts. Say yes to their squash and spinach bread pudding, topped off with cashew nut cheese. Tangy Tahiti dip would be a perfect match. But you’re not done with this hip joint, until you’ve tried their organic dulce de leche - It’s OK, you can spread some love and take some jars home to share with friends.
A highlight for the OCD in you: they tell you exactly how much of your meal was organically produced.
Address: Humboldt 2192, Palermo Hollywood
| KRISHNA |Great food, amazing vibe, decor that transports you to India, and the restaurant’s pet puppy guarding the place as you feast, is what you can expect at Krishna.
The cheese crêpes with chutney are a can’t-miss, but the Thali as a main course is the way to go!
We have three words for you: Harmonious, Different and Delicious — You simply have to give it a try...

| PIZZA VEGANA |The people working behind Pizza Vegana have redefined the concept of cheese, sauce and dough. If you ask yourself how can anybody turn pizza into a healthy mouth-watering vegan alternative, they have the answer.
You will have trouble picking your favourites here but in the hope that we can help... How do lentils, arugula, tomato and paparella sound? In case you’re not familiar with it, paparella is a potato, deceptively cheesy, a mozzarella alternative. All their pizzas have this in abundance and overdosing is probably the move.
Need to try them all in the comfort of your own StayUnico apartment? It’s all right, they offer delivery on their site here.
Address: Fitz Roy 1968, Palermo Hollywood
| VITA |Splendid coffee, natural juices and incredible vegetarian food and all in one location? Vita makes this mission-impossible seem like a piece of cake, and yes, they have a raw cake that’s also heavenly-made.
Did anybody know carrot risotto even existed? Well, Vita has already perfected it and you can’t leave without trying it.
This might just become your new favourite lunch place.
Address: Costa Rica 4522, Palermo Soho
| BUENOS AIRES VERDE |Genuinely tasty and healthy options make their menu a party of flavours. The Lasagna Raw is mind blowing, but it’s their salads that make us come back for more. Perfectly constructed, flavourful salads that make the visit well worth it, even for the meat-eaters!
Hats off to their menu of the day, an energy-fuelled, abundant delight. How about a next level omelette? Filled with grilled vegetables and cheese finished with some avocado, baked potatoes, and a side of salad.
Not a fan yet? Dessert might change your mind: cashew cream pancake with apple and cinnamon topped with fresh orange, raw ice cream and frutos rojos sauce.
Address: Gorriti 5657, Palermo Hollywood
