24 Aug Girasoles – Vegan/Vegetarian Restaurant
This family owned and operated restaurant situated in San Diego is the only 100% vegetarian restaurant in the city and has been going strong for more than 40 years now. As you may know, the term “vegetarian” doesn’t really get thrown around too ofter here in Colombia, making it very difficult for vegetarian travellers who pass through the country.
Girasoles offers a varied menu with an abundance of vegetarian creations from soups and salads to the more traditional Colombia lunch which features a soup and main course (rice, beans, protein and salad). Girasoles has put their own twist on the typical Colombian lunch to satisfy and please the vegetarian crowd.
A typical lunch at Girasoles could entail a healthy grain option such as quinoa or brown rice, a veggie-packed salad, protein option which ofter includes eggs, cheese and/or legumes and of course a tasty, clean soup. They can even accommodate vegans and have a great selection of health-conscience food products available for purchase.
Girasoles is not only great for vegetarians but also for anyone looking for a light and healthy meal or for those who might have strict dietary restrictions or allergies such as gluten free.
They also have a small in-house bakery full of yummy treats including dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan desserts as well as freshly baked breads.
This place tends to fill up quickly at lunch as it has become quite popular and well received by both the locals and tourists. The decor is quite simple and they tend to put all their focus on providing customers with fast, friendly service while filling your body with nutrient rich grub to keep you healthy and happy.
