I am moving in the direction of removing animal products from my diet for health and environmental reasons. I just found the Happy Cow site which lists and reviews vegetarian eateries worldwide. Here is their page for Medellin (click here).
We had dinner at Lindo Michoacan in Sabaneta couple of evenings ago. If you like authentic Mexican food this is a great choice. I say that because most “international” restaurant dishes soon take on a distinct Colombian flavor. This establishment practices authenticity. The proprietor of Linda Michocan, Francisco Ochoa is a native of Michoacan and is a proud proponent of the foods and culture of that region. He serves delicious meals.
He and his staff provide a relaxed friendly environment. The decoration is an education in the culture of Mexico and Michoacan. Abundant, tasteful and not overbearing.
I highly recommend a visit . The restaurant is located about a half block from the plaza at Calle 69 Sur No. 45-50. You can reach them by phone at 306-5369. If you will be using public transportation take the Metro to Itagui. Then take the mini bus or a cab to Sabaneta. If taking the bus, ask the driver if he passes by the plaza. Have fun, take your appetite and let us know what you think.
