5 restaurants that vegetarians will love in Barcelona
1) Les Tres a la Cuina
The space could do with a bit of sprucing up but Les tres a la cuina is great for lunch. Although they’ll occasionally serve meat, there’s always a vegetarian option and they’re very creative with soups and salads. Three-course lunch for 10 euros.
Sopa is a big and bright vegetarian and vegan restaurant with macrobiotic influences. Given its name, it’s not a big surprise soup is an important feature on their menu. All soups (e.g. carrot and orange soup, or pumpkin and sweet potato soup) are vegan. A 10 euro lunch menu includes a soup, a salad and a second dish, for example a stew of mijo, vegetables and lentils.
3) Restaurante Xavier Pellicer
Since May 2018, chef Xavier Pellicer is the proud owner of the Best Vegetable Restaurant in the World, according to the We’re Smart Green Guide. Even the dullest vegetables become gastronomic surprises here. The best way to sample Mr Pellicer’s artistic creations is to order a number of small dishes to share. The décor is very stylish, with a Mediterranean minimalistic feel.
4) Pappa Sven
At first you’ll notice the interior (a cross between an old Ikea catalogue and the inside of a dollhouse), but you’ll soon get distracted by the food. This Swedish restaurant is great at herring dishes and salmon. They sell Swedish beer and some other national delicacies. And the thing that will knock you out cold is not the bill but their liquor shots.
Mexican tacos, filled with slices of tofu, red onion, cilantro, Mexican pico de gallo sauce and fresh pineapple: this is just one of the mouth-watering dishes on the menu of this vegan food and cocktail bar. Kick off your meal with zucchini spaghetti, and then find out if you can resist the raw cheesecake.
