Vegan food guide: Barcelona

If I’m great at anything, it’s at organizing a trip, this goes from what to see, where to go and especially what and where to eat. As a lactose intolerant, I’ve been more focussed on eating vegan, which means I do a lot of research when I visit a city and I thought it would be nice to share, for vegans, or just people who appreciate good food.

BarCeloneta Sangria Bar

Our first dinner was at BarCeloneta, a small tapas place near the beach with a rather large sangria menu. If I remember correctly, I got the Jessica sangria and the Narciso burger.

The sangria and burger were a great combination, I’m not really a fan of burgers, but I really liked this one, the only ‘negative’ thing I can say about my order is that one potato did not satisfy me at all, I need more potatoes! The waiter was very friendly and I would certainly return to this place.

Price for two sangrias, two burgers and two desserts? €45.40


Not a 100% vegan place, but they do offer vegan cinnamon rolls. I had been drooling over their vegan nutella rolls, but when we got there, they weren’t made yet. I also didn’t really feel welcome at the place. The waitress was rather rude, she gave both of us the feeling that she didn’t really wanted to be there.

This place was on our way to the metro station so when we came back we decided to buy the vegan nutella rolls, but I thought the original and the nutella ones were rather dry. I do prefer the cinnamon rolls from PEAS in Hasselt.

Price for two cinnamon rolls, a coffee and a fresh orange juice? €17

CatBar CAT

Again, I normally don’t like burgers and I never ate so much burgers as I did in Barcelona, but this one was also on our way back to the hotel so we decided to jump in. It’s a small place with an unfriendly waitress. You get a piece of paper, write down what you want to order and pay at the bar, my recommendation is, don’t get the white wine. We just couldn’t get it down.

The burger however was amazing, I really liked the patatas bravas too. I would come back again, mainly for the cheap and good food. Maybe the waitress just had a bad day, but we felt unwelcome everywhere we ate (maybe it was us).

Price for two burgers, one with a salad and two white wines? €25.50

Casa do Açai Brunch & Coffee

Not a 100% vegan place. As we were very hungry we ordered way too much here, we both got two dishes and almost couldn’t finish the first. I got the poké bowl with tofu, which was my very first poké bowl ever and I must say, I’m in love.

I’d certainly would come back here as the food is amazing and the people working there are really friendly (for once).

I lost the bill, but I’m guessing it was around €40 for two smoothies, two avocado toasts, one poké bowl and one egg benedict.


From the start: I highly recommend this place. The waiter was so friendly, they have a special cocktail card and the food is outstanding. I got myself the David Bowie cocktail which I also highly recommend, it’s one of the best cocktails I’ve ever had.

I’m a big fan of anything with nachos so we shared a platter of nachos as a starter, which was also very good, even with vegan cheese sauce! Could it get any better?


I’m guessing you’re thinking ‘Hell no?!’ but, hell yes. We both ordered the burrito, which was also a winner, it would’ve been better if the sauces were already in the burrito but that’s just something I prefer. If you go there, don’t forget to visit the toilet because it’s so pretty.

I lost the bill, but I’m guessing it was around €40 for two cocktails, one nacho bowl and two burritos.


On our last day we snoozed and ordered some Chök with Glovo! I decided to order three vegan ones, one to eat as breakfast, two to take home. Femke decided to go for the non vegan option.

I must say this was so good, I’m not much of a donut/chocolate fan but I can certainly see myself going there again, it’s basically a donut filled with chocolate, who can say no to that?

So, this is where it ends, that’s basically all we’ve eaten, I left out one non vegan restaurant as I didn’t really like it, it was UDON Noodles, they do vegan options but I rather share the best ones. If you’re ever going to Barcelona, make sure to eat at some of these places, they won’t dissapoint!

Also, let me know if you like these kind of posts, as I do mainly plan my trips around food and wouldn’t mind writing more blog posts about it.
