Tasty vegetarian food. great lunchtime buffet deal

After eating what feels like only meat and tortillas for weeks, this place is a welcome change. The lunchtime buffet is great value at 84 pesos. Good selection of salads, soup, a range of cooked dishes, desserts as well as bread rolls and juice of the day. The restaurant is also housed in... read more

La Zanahoria is a good choice for vegetarians or if you want to take a break from meat. I was in town attending the Spanish Institute of Puebla and I think I ate there a little too often. I usually chose the buffet because the salad bar is quite good and the fruit/dessert bar is good as well. The entres... More

Are you a vegan or vegetarian and desperate of all the meat dishes served in restaurants alla over Mexico? Well, this is your place! And you don't have to speak Spanish to order or ask what the food is made of, because it's a buffet, so you can see yourself what you eat. And there are not only salads, but... More

I was so delighted to find this place. I got to try chile en nogada and a mole that I knew didn't have any chicken stock. Mole was particularly good and filling. Very good prices and suprisingly (shockingly?) crowded with locals on the weekends - but plenty of seating. Conveniently near the Zocolo. I'm not sure if there is a... More

As a non-meat-eater, I appreciate having choices like this, and an opportunity to try "typical" dishes with meat substitutes. I had a large pina torta here--ham and cheese and pineapple on a big roll. It was fine, obviously not as good as the original would have tasted; the french fries were greasy but pretty good. There are many juice options,... More

Excellent vegetarian restaurant. They have a buffet, a menu of the day, and an ala carte bar for small orders or orders to go. Food is excellent.

Excellent food -- easy to see why locals and visitors love this place. The buffet is wonderful, with new variations on traditional Mexican or international food adapted to Puebla. The individual plates are also quite exceptional. It's gourmet vegetarian -- great for vegetarians and meat-eaters taking a break.

I like the buffet, which is generous and varied. But for die-hard vegetarians (which 8 am not) it is a bit disappointing. The attached shop, however, has good breads and organics

Ate here several times for lunch. They have a daily lunch special that includes soup, salad, drink, and a choice of two vegetarian selections from several offerings. The food was filling and good, but nothing spectacular. The service tended to be a bit slow, but I did return several times when I needed a respite from fried fare. The restaurant... More
