A few months ago, my boyfriend and I went on a roadtrip to the north of Argentina. I had recently stopped eating meat, so going to the meat loving country next door presented a challenge. I stayed strong though. There was always at least one vegetarian option in all the restaurants we ate at. That vegetarian option was always boring or deep-fried. When I travel I try to stay as healthy as possible, but finding something meat-less AND healthy in Argentina wasn’t too easy.
Which is why I was SO HAPPY to find Chirimoya – a vegan restaurant – in Salta. I’m not a vegan, but I truly enjoy eating at vegan restaurants. I feel like vegan cooking is very creative & nutritious.
If you’re ever in Salta, Argentina, make sure to check out this restaurant! The service was kind of slow but I felt like that was more of a local problem in Salta in general. The food was incredible and I look forward to the day I go back to Salta just so I can eat that lomito de quinoa again!
