#190 Pizza and crema Catalana at Vegetalia Born, Barcelona

restaurant review #190  – Vegetalia is a vegetarian restaurant in the city center of Barcelona, with several locations in the city (Gotico, Raval, Born).  We went to the one in Born, in the historic city center of Barcelona. Vegetalia Born is at the corner of a square at the Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar, and sitting at the window, we had a nice view on the square.
This review is from a visit a couple of months ago, during our short trip to Barcelona (More reviews of Barcelona HERE).

We arrived here a bit after lunch time. Vegatalia Born is a busy place, but there were some empty tables. There was a mixed public of young and old, and I think a lot of visitors were locals (not tourists).

Vegan options are indicated on the menu. There are also fresh juices available.

We were served some egg plant (free appetizer). We had a glass of wine (3,50€) and juice (4,20€) and some olives (2,60€).

We ordered a vegan pizza (9,50€) and the catalan creme, to share (we had already eaten so much during or trip, that we didn’t fancy a ‘full’ menu this time).
We expected the pizza to be more traditional style, with plenty tomato sauce. There were big chuncks of vegetables, but hardly any tomato. It was topped with vegan cheese, but that was not melted enough.
The vegan catalan creme (3,90€) was very nice.

The interior at Vegetalia Born felt a bit old fashioned to us. Service was very friendly and swift.

Vegetalia Born is wheelcair accessible (there is an accessible toilet on the ground level). Clean, but a bit shabby though. There was an ingenious systeem as a washing bassin (bucket) 😉 Paper towels to dry one’s hands.

It was a nice place to relax, and have a snack, in the busy historic center of Barcelona. The pizza doesn’t really rank among our favcourites, but there are enough other options on the menu to try!
