La Zanahoria information
This (entirely meat-free) godsend for vegetarians is an excellent place for lunch, and is moments from the zócalo . The drawcard is the popular daily buffet (adult/child M$73/40 Monday to Thursday, M$94/49 Friday to Sunday) from 1-6pm in the spacious interior colonial courtyard, which features over 20 dishes and salads, such as corn croquettes, chilaquiles and Middle Eastern tabbouleh.
The extensive a la carte menu includes everything from veggie hamburguesas to nopales rellenos (stuffed cactus paddles). In the front of the restaurant is the express service area (including a juice bar and a healthfood snack shop).
