During the past few years, Bogotá has grown into a recognized gastronomic city. Before it was quite difficult to find vegetarian or vegan food, but now, in almost all the restaurants you can find these options. So now anyone can fully experience our gastronomy! Here are some of the best vegetarian restaurants in Bogotá!
Colombian gastronomy is traditionally focused on meat, but now, chefs have opened a lot of vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Bogotá. In some of them, you can find twists on typical Colombian food, like vegan tamales, vegan hot dogs, vegetarian empanadas, etc. I’m going to show you some of them by area.
De Raiz restaurant: This restaurant is one of the favorites of vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. They offer different types of food like vegetarian pizzas, veggie burgers, vegetarian tacos, etc. The price for a main dish is around 16,000 to 24,000 pesos (~5 to 7.50 dollars). You can check out the menu here. Also, they have a mini local market where you can find specialty foods and ingredients.
Elektra Punk and Food: The concept of this restaurant is really different. It’s a small place with a lot of energy. They also offer vegan options. Their menu is not big but they offer vegetarian hot dogs, veggie burgers, sandwiches, and vegan ice cream. For a main dish, the price is around 15,000 pesos (~4.50 dollars).
