Best Vegan Restaurants in Buenos Aires, Argentina

vegan restaurants in buenos aires argentina

At first, there was some reluctancy in the Buenos Aires restaurant scene to accepting vegan food with open arms. After all, Argentina is a primarily agro-exporting country with a long tradition of meat consumption. Before, you could only buy vegan food from small businesses that cooked the meals themselves (which Argentinians call “emprendimientos”). Now, you can find all kinds of milk, including vegetable milk, at almost any supermarket, along with cookies, toppings, and vegan meat; this was especially so after the arrival of the brand NotCo in Argentina. There are a bunch of options, mainly located in the centric area of the city, where the vegan lifestyle continues to expand. So, without further ado, Here are 10 of the best vegan restaurants in Buenos Aires you don’t want to miss:

  1. Estilo Veggie: Vegan restaurant in Buenos Aires

It’s a beautiful vegan place that specializes in tasty vegan homemade fast-food. It’s located in the famous barrio of Palermo and has diverse options 100% plant-based: burgers made out of legumes, nachos with cheddar cheese or guacamole, hot dogs and even vegan choripan. You should definitely try the freshly made juices which are amazing: we suggest the apple and beet juice along with the Quinoa Mediterranean Salad.

Adress: Fitz Roy 1941, Palermo

  1. Veganius: Vegan Restaurant in Buenos Aires

Veganius is a take-out place that offers all kinds of vegan options: daily menus, different types of sandwiches, desserts and pastries, empanadas and salads. They have a special menu for Christmas and New Year: pan dulce (a sweet bread commonly made with candied fruit or nuts), meat roulade (rolled pork that’s been typically stuffed with steamed vegetables and egg) and vitel toné (sliced veal with a delicious mayonnaise caper and tuna sauce). You can also buy vegan cheese, milk, yoghurts, and other plant-based items for your pantry. We strongly recommend you try the croissant with almond cream and the vegan ham and cheese empanadas. If you pay in cash you’ll always have a discount.

You can choose between different varieties: ham and cheese, tuna, cheese and tomato and many others! The place also sells pizzas, nuggets of “not-chicken”, empanadas and milanesa sandwiches (the typical Argentine sandwich, but made with seitan meat, tomato, lettuce and mayonnaise). We recommend you try the ham and cheese sandwich as well as the ham and cheese medialuna. The medialuna is a sweet pastry similar to a croissant. Futuro Veggie is a take-out place with two locations

They sell burgers, milanesa sandwiches, wraps, and choripan (you’ll want to share this last one with a friend).  It’s also a take out place but it’s near the Arenales square where you can sit on the grass or a bench and enjoy the outside view while eating.

  1. Buenos Aires Verde

Treat yourself to the culinary delights of Chef Mauro Massimo. Here you’ll find organic vegan and vegetarian dishes and also raw options. For Massimo, it is important to reconnect to seasonal products as well as to organic and agro-ecological products. The best options to try are tofu grilled Tiradito with oriental sauce. For dessert, you should order the raw seasonal fruit tart. The restaurant offers special smoothies with different health benefits and properties: antioxidant, revitalising, anti-cold. Buenos Aires Verde has two stores located in Belgrano and Palermo.

In addition, in Artemisia you can purchase vegan cosmetics, personal care products, decoration items and home-made bread.  They also offer organic options and outdoor seating.

  1. Sacro

This is the place to find vegan gourmet food and exotic flavors. It’s a huge restaurant with a sophisticated aesthetic, which makes it the perfect spot for getting an after-office drink. The must-try dish of the place is the plate of matured cheeses: almond camembert, one made out of spirulina and another one made out of kimchi and cashews. It’s quite hard to find a good vegan cheese, but in Sacro you can find three of them.  Also, try out the delicious chocolate mini-tart with ice cream on the side.

Adress: Costa Rica 6038, Palermo

Price range: $$$

Probably, as time goes by, more and more vegan places will open in Buenos Aires. In June of 2021, a draft law that required all restaurants to have at least one vegan and vegetarian option on their menu was sent to Congress. Sadly, the rest of the country is not so keen on offering vegan food to tourists, nor on cooking food that is suited for people who are gluten intolerant. It’s still quite hard to find vegan places to eat in Buenos Aires and more so in Argentina, especially in those cities that are less populated.
