Where to Eat Vegetarian in Buenos Aires

Argentina is famous for its world-class beef, and whenever most people think of the country they picture gauchos tending to cattle in the expansive green pampas, and the perfectly prepared steak available in the fine dining culture of Buenos Aires. For the committed vegetarian though, this poses a challenge in how to enjoy the capital's cuisine and still stick to your preffered diet.

Luckily, it's not only possible but many have found the vegetarian food in the city to be be satisfying and savory. Check out some of these restaurants:


1st Floor, Avenida Florida 165 
Mon-Fri, Lunch Only 11am - 3pm 

Granix offers vegetarian options served as both hot and cold entrees, and has on its menu fresh salads and juices, and tasty desserts. Go for the all you can eat buffet (30 pesos) or take-out, a cheaper option where food is measured by weight. Bring your lunch to the nearby Plaza de Mayo. 

Pizzeria Guerin

Avenida Corrientes 1368 
Open Everyday 

Distinctly Argentinian, porteño style pizza. Simple, one topping, thin and crusty. Try the “muzzeralla,” and enjoy a slice at the bar.


Gorriti 5870 
Tues-Thurs 12pm-1am; Fri-Sat 12:30pm-2:30am, sometimes later if busy; Sun 10am-1am 

Olsen is one of the top food destinations in the city, and while it is not purely vegetarian, options like the goat cheese ravioli make this a must. Dinner starts with a small assortment of bagels, and the food is well-thought out and delicious. Otherwise, go for the Sunday Brunch, the 60 varieties of vodka, or the English speaking staff.

Bio is a well-known vegetarian restaurant that replaces beef and chicken components with home-made seitan and tofu. All ingredients are organic and grown or produced in Argentina. Try the couscous or the Thai Rice.
