Luckily, lunch at Krishna is not all about self-realization, God-realization, Bhakti-yoga and spiritual life. Rather it is about ‘comida rica, sana, que tiene pocas calorias’ – tasty food that’s healthy and keeps the waistline trim – as porteñas say with a smile.
In Buenos Aires, the females of the species look trim, pretty and sculpted because they take care to look after themselves. Krishna serves tasty vegetarian Indian food that is, well, very healthy. So it figures – at lunchtime, many attractive young ladies congregate here.
If you can handle a plate of spiced soya meat, then you could meet the lithe, holistic yoga instructor of your dreams. Krishna does its meditating in front of Plaza Palermo Viejo, around which hundreds of boutique shops are popping up in the cobbled backstreets.
