Vegetarian friendly in Buenos Aires + El calafate reccos

Pigudel | Mar 5, 2012 10:16 AM

My husband and I will be in Buenos Aires for two days .. too short, unfortunately. He’s vegetarian, and I’m looking for recommendations on restaurants where he can have an enjoyable meal (and not just a random pasta dish thrown together to ‘accommodate’ vegetarians), but at the same time, I don’t miss out on a good BA restaurant experience.

Casa Felix has a vegetarian menu – would you recommend that? Would you recommend a puerta cerrada as a key BA experience we shouldn’t miss, or stick to regular restaurants since we’re just there for a couple of days (I went to the equivalent of a puerta cerrada in HK and loved the experience, so am leaning towards it, esp given Felix’s veg menu). Casa Mun and Salt Shaker aren’t open the days we’re there unfortunately.

Also, we’ll be in El Calafate for two nights – I’ve heard Don Pichon and Las Tablitas come up. Any views on those or other restaurants?

My other picks from the boards are below – any comments or suggestions are welcome.
Parilla: Don Julio, La Cabrera, Parilla Pena – if you had to pick just one, which would it be?
Lunch: choripan/empanadas – any specific place I should get these from, or any neighbourhood panaderia?
Gelato: Un Altra Volta, Persicco, Arkakao

Thanks in advance!
