Eating Vegan in Barcelona

Eating Vegan in Barcelona

On our honeymoon we spent most of our time in Lisbon, Portugal, but jetted off to Barcelona, Spain for a couple of days to check it out. The Flax&Kale and Vegitalia locations were so close to our hotel, that we found ourselves eating there multiple times because the food was just so good! Here are our reviews on vegan restaurants we tried, plus some honorable mentions of places we were not able to make it to, but were highly recommended.

  1. Flax&Kale

Vegan Rating: Mostly plant-based, with fish options and vegetarian options

Hours:

Location:

The Spot: The super chic, extremely busy restaurant was my favorite restaurant in Barcelona. The woman who owns it, Theresa Carles, actually has 3 Flax&Kale locations (we went to 2/3), plus a her own juiceries (found at Flax&Kale locations, plus some stand-alone juiceries), and another restaurant named after her. Basically- she is killing it in Barcelona! All of her restaurants have offer fatty fish, plus vegetarian and vegan options, and an array of fresh juices.

What to Try: We ate at Theresa’s restaurants an embarrassing amount of times during our short stay in Barcelona. At both of her restaurants, the service was fast and the food was delicious. It’s really hard to choose my favorite dishes, so just know that you will probably enjoy anything that you order! For starters- the cheesy kale chips were messy but delicious, and more healthy than our usual chips and salsa app back in the states. For entrees- My Vegan Japanese Girlfriend Bowl (weird name, incredible taste) was unreal. Part of this bowl contained vegan scrambled eggs that were out of this world and tasted exactly like the real thing. I could tell they were not made with tofu, so I have no idea what they contained, but they were amazing. I also really enjoyed the Vegan Pho. For drinks- the Frappuchino was basically like a milkshake and so decadent and delicious, but pretty filling. I also really enjoyed the “Detox Juice” which consisted of purified water, activated charcoal, lime, and blueberries. Chris really enjoyed the “Forever Young.” For desserts- the double layer chocolate cake was to die for.

2. Theresa’s Juicery

Vegan Rating: Juicery with juices (duh) and vegetarian and vegan snack and pastry options

Hours:

Location:

The Spot: Theresa’s Juicery was apart of all of the Flax&Kale locations, but we can across this stand alone location one night and stopped in for some dessert to take back to our hotel room.

What to Try:The double layer chocolate cake and the maple glazed donut. (Theresa’s restaurants are so health-conscious that it feels somewhat less guilty eating desserts from her restaurants. Or at least that’s what I kept telling myself!)

3. Vegitalia

Vegan Rating: Restaurant with vegetarian and vegan options

Hours:

Location:

The Spot:

What to try: We went HAM here and got a bunch of appetizers to share. (We actually went two nights in a row and ordered the same exact thing both nights!) Everything we had was worth recommending. We highly recommend the vegan nachos (but as for vegan cheese, otherwise you will just get plain chips), the Mushroom, The Spring Rolls, and the Patatas Bravas. The sangria was also only 8 Euros for a pitcher that contained a decent amount of glasses.

4.) Theresa Carles

Vegan Rating: Mostly plant-based, with fish options and vegetarian options

Hours:

Location:

The Spot: Another one of Theresa Carle’s empires. The food here was pretty similar to Flax&Kale and her juices were also offered on the menu that you could also just walk-in and purchase off the street.

What to Try: We ordered appetizers to share for dinner. As like her other restaurants, the place was bustling, but we didn’t have to wait for a table. The service was fast and the food was tasty.
