I thought I would struggle finding vegetarian food in Mongolia so it was a bit of a shock finding not one but two vegan restaurants in the capital. Out of the two Luna Blanca was probably my favourite. Great choice, friendly staff and it was especially nice to try borscht knowing that it was completely meat free. Although it doesn't... More

Luna Blanca is the epitome of vegan food. It is totally unpretentious, tasty and good value. I tried the spinach and dumpling soup. Delicious.

I was a little skeptical about going here but it had good reviews and now I know why. The food is delicious! The atmosphere is serene, a great place to take a family. A wide choice of food and very reasonably priced.

When you are for a while in mongolia you will get tired of sheepmeat :-) This vegetarian restaurant is really a treat! Yummy, flavourful dishes. Even extreme carnivores will love it.

We had an excellent and warming dinner at Luna Blanca. The food was very tasty, it is vegan, but it was incredibly flavoursome! The staff were really lovely and helpful also. It was definitely one of the best places we ate in Ulaanbaatar. Highly recommend, even if you are a carnivore!
