restaurant review #274 – Nabucco Obrador is a take-away place in the Gracia district of Barcelona (More reviews of Barcelona HERE). This review is from a restaurant visit to Nabucco Obrador in 2019 (I know I’m late with my post 😉 ), so from before lockdown measures due to the COVID19 pandemic. There weren’t so many options for vegans in the neighbourhood for an early lunch (at noon), so we ended up going here. It is only take away (and a very small place), but there is one small bench (for two) at the front window. So we could have our lunch there (no table though, so a bit unhandy to eat). Vegan options are labelled and the lady at the counter had no problem telling us what was vegan.
restaurant review #256 – Aguaribay is a vegetarian restaurant in the El Poblenou area of Barcelona. It is not far from the beach. We visited a couple of months ago, when we were in Barcelona for the EACAS conference (European Association of Critical Animal Studies). We were too early for lunch (starts at 1PM) but we could get a sandwich with hummus and tomatoes, which was nice.
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 #198 – La Raposa is a vegan feminist community center (with book store) and bar/resto, near Parc Mont Juic in Barcelona (more reviews of Barcelona HERE). This is from a visit to La Raposa a couple of months ago (beginning 2018). We visited after going to nearby Parc Mont Juic. There are not a lot of vegan (friendly) places in the area, so we were excited to visit this vegan feminist meeting bar/place! Yeah! Our enthousiasm was a bit tempered after entering though. The menu is written on chalkboard next to bar (in Spanish – or Catalunyan). We were addressed in Spanish (or Catalunyan), and as we didn’t understand, asked whether they spoke English, but got a rather annoyed roll of the eyes and sigh back. In our best Spanish-ish, we did manage to order some drinks and hummus and a plat du jour, which was with pasta. The burger was not available that day. The food was very nice (and cheap). The hummus came with bread and some crackers. The plat du jour was not a …
