Bio is good for your Body

by Kyla

For a fresh, organic flavor burst, check out this Seattle like veggie haven. The quaint, cute interior makes you feel like you're sitting in someone's hippified living room. You're lucky if you get a table because Argentine and tourists alike seem to connect with this meat free zone.

When we sat down, the waitress brought us some homemade wheat bread with a delicious bean dip. Mike ordered a red wine that they didn't have in stock so they poured him two glasses of a tasty Malbec from the Cuatro Vacas Gordas (four fat cows) wine maker. We started the meal with a miso soup that was floating with mushroom, onions, and tofu. Our main dishes were the Chef's recommendations. I ordered the baked tofu in a red wine reduction over a colchon (mattress) of quinoa and spinach. Very lightly seasoned and yet full of flavor. Mike's dish was a veggie curry with jasmine rice which tasted like a non-spicy Indian curry. The food was an oasis of health after being filled with many meals of grilled meat, pizza,or pasta.

To finish the meal, we had an apple crumble with sesame ice cream. I left feeling very satisfied to have had an organically, fresh, vegetarian meal in the carnivorous world of Argentina.

DON'T MISS- They have a wonderful selection of yummy foods from their small store such as hard to find wines, organic dulce de leches, and teas up the wazoo.
