Origen - Restaurant Buenos Aires - Argentina

Despite the city's reputation as a meat lover's paradise, dining out in Buenos Aires need not be an artery-clogging experience. Whole grain pizza crusts topped with freshly sautéed veggie goodness, delicious fruit smoothies and other vegetarian-friendly delights make this friendly indoor/outdoor café a rarity in wine heavy, steak-driven San Telmo. Organic meets class in a tasty way that even the most carnivorous will enjoy.

Make no mistake, this is healthy, not health, food; you'll satisfy both your appetite and your taste buds. Although the menu is not particularly extensive, non-meat eaters will appreciate the pumpkin ravioli, the Wok-style vegetables with bamboo, tofu and almonds, and the vegetarian stew with lentils, rice, potato and pumpkin. Open daily, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
