As the culinary offering throughout Bolivia begins to broaden its horizons little by little and celebrate its incredible biodiversity, vegetarian and vegan options are also starting to become more readily available. Taking advantage of their success as one of the few locations in the country offering truly delicious, unique vegan offerings, La Paz’s Red Monkey has expanded with Red Monkey Patio, a more intimate café setting offering the same, high quality vegan fare. Located in the lower section of the city, just around the corner from hot spots like Gustu, Jardín de Asia and Yerba Buena, the new offering will most certainly appeal to a growing clientele of discerning food lovers.

Chef and owner Pablo Santa Cruz told local outlet La Razon, “We’re interested in showing that it’s possible to eat healthy, that it’s not something out of reach of the culture or even how people have been eating, but simply something that you go changing and adding little things to lead a better life.” The new patio space will be open from Tuesdays to Saturdays, 12:00 to 15:00, and will offer a menu that will change weekly. They’re also soon hoping to add breakfast and tea time options featuring vegan pastries.

For now, grab your lunch at Av Montenegro E-10, above the Benetton store.

Aprovechando de su éxito como uno de los únicos locales en el país que ofrece deliciosa comida vegana, Red Monkey de La Paz ha ampliado su oferta con Red Monkey Patio, una oferta más intima al estilo cafe, que ofrece la misma comida vegana de alta calidad. Ubicado en la sección baja de la ciudad, a la vuelta de lugares como Gustu, Jardín de Asia y Yerba Buena, la nueva oferta debe llamar la atención del nuevo grupo en crecimiento de fanáticos de la comida.

El chef y dueño Pablo Santa Cruz dijo a la red local La Razon, “Nos interesa demostrar que se puede comer sano, que no es algo ajeno a la cultura o a cómo la gente se ha alimentado siempre, sino que es simplemente ir cambiando y añadiendo pequeñas cosas para llevar una vida mejor.” El nuevo patio se abre los martes a sábado, de 12:00 a 15:00, ofreciendo una carta que cambia cada semana. Pronto esperan añadir el desayuno y hora de te con repostería vagan.

Por ahora, compra tu almuerzo en Av Montenegro E-10, arriba de la tienda Benetton.
