It is not all about steak in Buenos Aires…
Green trendsetters have arrived to the land of barbecue to evangelize porteños on the veggie path. However, Verde Llama went one step further: this time it is not only vegetables we are talking about, but also “raw food”. Yes, the famous ‘Demi Moore diet’ has now found a little spot in the end corner of Palermo Hollywood in the Chacarita neighborhood; and to be honest it is delicious.
Raw food means that it is not cooked; only a special oven that dehydrates it is used so that the food won’t loose its nutritional values and keep its “vital energy”. It is the equivalent of cooking with the heat of the sun.
Diego Castro, owner and chef at Verde Llama, will be right next to you preparing incredibly tasty dishes in an open kitchen in the middle of the room. The atmosphere is bohemian and guards some peace in the middle of the urban jungle.
To make it all the way, you must ask for an organic wheatgrass juice and don’t miss the cream cashew cheese. The menu changes according to the season, but anything you’ll order will make you feel healthy, fresh and change your opinion about vegetables.
And if after a first date it becomes love at first sight, don’t miss Diego’s cooking classes, where he shares the secrets behind the raw food veil.
