Vegan Food Tour Medellin. The Verdict

Out of all the cities in Colombia I have visited is by far, the most vegan friendly city I have been to. I flew into Medellin straight from Los Angeles so the Vegan Restaurant standard was set sky high – and Medellin came through with shining colours.

I embarked on a Vegan Tour of Medellin  with local food bloggers @parasaborearse, @eat_medellin and @foodlovers_medellin  to discover which were the best places to eat in the city and here is my conclusion and recommendation for you, my fellow vegans.

Pro Tips:

  1. Bread Often Is Make With Milk
  2. Beans Are Often Made With Meat Fat
  3. Food is often cooked with the same kitchenware.
  4. Ask about 5 times in 5 different ways – just incase

Bonus Tip: Fresh fruit is everywhere so you can fill yourself up with that

Where To Eat Vegan Food in Medellin?

Most Delightful: Dharma

Situated in the hip upscale neighborhood in Medellin called El Poblado – Dharma is the oh so cosy, welcoming & ambient… Read my full review

Most Creative: Roll’up Sushi Burrito

If there is a style of cooking that can be defined as millennial, and increasingly I think there is, it lies in the sum of these various parts. It’s about full-flavours, creativity, fusion, and a devoted conviction that flavour must win every time. Read my full review

Most Popular: Lenteja Express

With 4 locations in Medellin – Lenteja express is the only chain vegetarian & vegan restaurant in Medellin, that’s an indication of their popularity and success. Read my full review

Hidden Gem: Flora

I strolled into Flora not knowing what to expect. The decor is so attractive and well designed. It is not too fancy but it is definitely trendy, in a good way! Flora have plenty of options for vegans and vegetarians so I decided to get the salad bowl with an oriental sauce. It was too good to be true, I just wanted to stay forever and the price is reasonable

Best Restaurant in Laureles: Naturalia

Most Expensive: Pizzeria OLIVIA

I ordered a simple quinoa salad bowl with cashew cheese and I was totally disappointed at the taste. It was blander then water and I was still hungry after. Dining in Medellin should not cost you more then 15000, especially as a vegan – you will be spending upwards 25000 in Pizzeria Olivia which is more then the Medellin standard

Indian Food: Masala

Since Indian food is the National Dish Of Britain I had been craving a good curry for a while. I ordered the lentil curry at Masala and they came through as if I was back home in London. The bread was really really satisfying. Just a quick note though: I went with @eat_medellin and she complained that her chickpeas were undercooked which they were. When you go make sure that you specify that you want your chickpeas cooks well done.

Worst Restaurant: Fenicia

Rip off Lebanese food with the worst falafel I have ever tasted. I do not recommend this place to anyone, especially if you have tasted Arabic food before. Read my full review here
