restaurant review #248 – Rasoterra is a vegetarian restaurant in the old city center of Barcelona (More reviews of Barcelona HERE). We had already visited Rasoterra in the beginning of 2018 (see review) and we liked it so much that we definitely wanted to visit again during our visit to Barcelona in the Spring of 2019. Rasoterra often pops up as one of the best places to go dining on vegan or vegetarian lists of Barcelona – or even the world! We agree! I had made a reservation by phone, and it is definitely advised to make a reservation, because the place soon filled up again.
restaurant review #244 – Dolce Pizza y Los Veganos is a vegetarian restaurant in the city center of Barcelona. It is located between the Gracia area and the Sagrada Familia (at the end of the Passeig de Sant Joan parc). Vegan options are clearly noted, and it was very hard choosing from so many options on the menu. Not used to having so much choice!
restaurant review 241 – Veggieburger by Biocenter is a vegetarian restaurant in the food court of a shopping mall in Barcelona. It doesn’t really sound attractive, but these burgers were some of the best we ever had! Veggieburger by Biocenter is located near the Poblenou district (Avenu Diagonal) close to the University where we went to the conference of the European Association of Critical Animal Studies. The food court is located in the basement (-1 floor) and the Veggie Burger stand is on the far side, next to the meat court unfortunately. Vegan options are clearly labelled on menu.
shop review #60 – We were wondering around the Barri Gotic area (the historical city center) in Barcelona and discovered this vegan shop by accident. What a nice discovery! Cuco Vegan fashion opened end of 2018 and has a nice collection of bags, backpacks, wallets, purses and more.
Shop review #59 – La Besnéta is a little bakery in the Gracia area in Barcelona.
Restaurant review #231 – Roots & Roll is a fairly new vegan restaurant (openend Summer 2018) in the heart of Barcelona. It is located in the Eixample area, about a 10 minute walk from the Sagrada Familia. We were here a couple of weeks ago, during our stay in Barcelona for the 6th Conference of the European Association of Critical Animal Studies.
Shop review #58 – We were in Barcelona a couple of weeks ago (for the EACAS conference, see here) and on the last day we spent the morning in the Poblenou area. I love discovering vegan shops in other cities/countries, as it’s always an opportunity to discover new products. And also have a chat with the owners and other vegans 😉
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, …
restaurant review #173 La Trocadero is a vegan fastfood self service bar near the Sagrada Familia. You order food at the counter, then go pick up your food at the counter (number called out in Spanish or Catalan). And one is expected to clean up after finished. We went here for lunch, after our visit to the Sagrada Familia. (More reviews of Barcelona HERE). The menu is shown on TV screens above the counter. There’s an English explanation, and photos of the dishes next to it. The girl serving at counter was a bit rude, and not very welcoming. She hardly spoke any English, but we managed to place our order. La Trocadero is not for elaborate dining and wining. It is fastfood: burgers and hotdogs. No alcohol served, except some rootbeer. The place seems newly renovated and seems very hip and modern. Very simple furniture though, but very creative (with vegetable boxes). There was retro stuff as decoration, like old televisions and radios. A very colourful interior. We had a notdog (3,75€), onionrings (3,90€), a …
Restaurant review #169 – Barceloneta is a vegan tapas bar, at the beach area of Barcelona (the area is called ‘la Barceloneta’, hence the name of the tapas bar). We visited a couple of weeks ago, on a cold and Wintery afternoon (yes it was cold with a blistering wind at the beach! not the image one has when thinking of Barcelona 😉 ). So we were glad there was a vegan bar in the area, to warm up! (More reviews of Barcelona HERE). Barceloneta is a rather small place and is a bit dark. There are two rooms, and each have an entrance door (to different parallel streets). The menu has several exotic sounding cocktails, sangrias, a great selection of tapas, and also burgers. We ordered these: Mona Lisa cocktail (with white wine and mint) 8€ Dianna cocktail (with rosé wine) 7€ vegan ‘calamares’ rings and tofu croquettes, each 7,95€ Drinks and tapas totalled 30,90€ (which we found somewhat expensive, for Barcelona). The tapas were good, the tofu croquettes were very dense though. There …
