If there's something i hate about Buenos Aires (besides dog poop and mad traffic) is that you cannot find many organic products at the supermarket (so far, at least). Right in the heart of Palermo Soho, this iconic vegetarian restaurant/deli is an oasis for those of us looking for honestly priced organic produce and goods. I've been coming here since I first became a vegetarian years ago and trust me, there were not may places to buy good natural (or naturally good?) food. These guys are real pioneers and they put great care in what they do. Most of what they sell is certified organic, the prices are great and the waiting staff is always friendly and helpful. I usually get the soup of the day, it's cheap, and it comes fairly quickly. There are also different varieties of quiche, home made whole wheat pastas, sandwiches, fresh salads, fruit salads and freshly pressed juices. Eat your veggies!
