Restaurante Vegetariano Yug

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by SeaTurtle on October 8, 2006

This was the best meal I had while in Mexico City, although the competition wasn’t stiff as I was mostly eating the buffet at my hostel. I sought it out because it is vegetarian, and the neighborhood of the Zona Rosa is a neat area to walk around, although it starts to deteriorate as you get closer to the restaurant.

It is moderately priced (US $5-15) with sandwiches, Mexican specialties (some made with soy meat), salads and juices. They have the best fruit cocktail! I had three puffy little empanadas – one filled with mushroom, one with savory soy meat, and the last with flor de calabaza (zucchini blossom). The squash blossom one was so good, I can still taste it as I am writing this almost a year later! This is definitely a place to visit if you want to seek out a vegetarian restaurant, plus it has bulletin boards filled with alternative type stuff (yoga classes, etc) that would be great if you were staying for an extended period of time and trying to find some like-minded people.

I spent summer 2005 in Mexico. It was my first visit there, although I have been back several times since then. I spent two months doing a sustainable development project northeast of Mexico city in San Luis Potosi.
