Vegetalia Barcelona is a Vegetarian Restaurant / Bar in Barri Gotic. What better dish to enjoy on an early evening, than creamy Hummus? Vegetalia offers delicious Hummus in Barri Gotic, Barcelona, but also other healthy and vegetarian meals. In the Gothic Quarter it feels like there is one Restaurant next to another, offering a wide range of touristic Tapa places, and as I’ve discovered many Italian places, but also cafés and juice places.
Usually, it’s not very easy to find vegetarian dishes in Spain, let alone Vegetarian or even Vegan Restaurants, but Vegetalia Barcelona is an exception of that. The Restaurant is located at Plaça de George Orwell in the oldest district of Barcelona, the Gothic Quarter, not too far from the famous La Rambla. If it’s not raining the outside sitting area enjoys nice sunshine until late afternoon, especially perfect now in the colder season. As all dishes are at least vegetarian, or even vegan, it is easy to find something good on the menu. As it was already late afternoon and I still haven’t had anything for Lunch, I went for two dishes of the ‘snack’/starters category: Humus aliñado con pan de pita (6,50€), seasoned Hummus with Pita Bread, and Rollitos de verdura caseros – servido con teriyaki (6,20€), fried vegetable Rolls with teriyaki sauce. Both dishes are vegan. Just 5 minutes after I ordered my order was already served. Without a doubt, this was the best Hummus in Barri Gotic, and the most tasty fried vegetable rolls. Personally I prefer my Hummus, a paste mainly made out of chickpeas, silky and smooth. I received exactly this at Vegetalia GOTICO, plus seasoning with nice spices. And I think I know why everything tasted so good, Vegetalia Barcelona is growing their own organic vegetables. Not straight in Barcelona, but in the village of Castellcir, about 50 km outside of the City. Friendly service, good food and at a nice location just off the busy main tourist streets. I can definitely recommend Vegetalia Barcelona!
Besides Lunch and Snacks, and Hummus, they offer Breakfast with fresh Juices, homemade cakes and a variety of drinks (incl. ecological beers).
