This jamón-loving city is not exactly famous for being a green eats-goldmine (but on the other hand, which big city in the world is?). However, this is 2018 and we are happy to let you know that Barcelona is, not unlike most large cities in Europe, in transition towards becoming more and more vegan friendly.
This is in fact really good news, since being vegan for such a long time has meant going to the closest market to buy fresh vegetables, grains, nuts and fruits for you to bring home, prepare and cook yourself. Or ordering meat dishes at restaurants and having to specify exactly what you don’t want in your meal (“I’ll take the pasta carbonara without the cream, egg, meat, and oh, if you could be so kind and boil some rice noodles for me instead, since I don’t eat pasta made from eggs?”). Ugh… Luckily, people are finally starting to realize that veganism isn’t just some temporary diet. In Barcelona there actually are quite a few restaurants with veg-options or with completely vegan menus, many of which are worth more than one visit. The problem with vegan restaurants though; where the heck are they? And which restaurants are good enough to pay a visit?
If you are vegan and new in Barcelona, if you want to impress a partner or friend you know would appreciate vegan friendly restaurant, or if you just want to try something different (and delicious!)… Please sit back, relax and let us help you find your new favorite vegan friendly restaurant in Barcelona.
