Healthy Food Options in Buenos Aires


 

In a city famous for steak, empanadas, and doughy pizza, the salad has become a bit of a recluse. Being a huge fan of those big salads stuffed full of all sorts of things, I’ve scoped out a few good options here in Buenos Aires.

Delicious Café (Recoleta): My favorite is the Falafel Salad (greens, cherry toms, crispy falafel, queso fresco, pistachios, sprouts, and yogurt-mint dressing).img_9791

The Chicken salad is also great – greens, nuts, warm grilled chicken and melting Parmesan.img_0243

Ninina (Palermo)Grilled chicken, avocado, cheese, endive, and spinach, served with homemade bread and good coffee on the side. img_9563

Tea Connection (Various Locations): The salads here change with the season but I’ve yet to be disappointed.

Grilled shrimp: with fresh corn, arugula, cherry tomatoes, and mango.

Grilled chicken: with brie, marinated kale, roasted zucchini, avocado-lemon dressing. img_1560

Mineral (Microcentro): A tiny hopping hot spot for lunch. Check out their menu online here.

Le Pain Quotidien (Various locations): An exclusively organic restaurant founded in Brussels, and now expanding all over the world. All salads come with house-made bread and organic olive oil. 

Vegan Salad: with shredded beets, carrots, jicama, tofu, tomatoes, endive, toasted coconut, and soy dressing.img_0547

Quinoa: with shrimp, avocado, tomatoes, cucumbers, mango, and greens.img_2841

Spinach: with roasted squash, brie, caramelized onions, almonds, and a poached egg. img_0790

When you get tired of the steak, Malbec, and pasta in Buenos Aires (although that might take a while), there’s an underground salad scene alive and well!
