Vegetarian in Barcelona Part I – Flax & Kale

I moved to Barcelona quite sceptical about the food panorama at first, not eating meat and all. Now, almost a year later (wow, time flies!) while I look back and think of all the great food I have eaten here, I couldn’t be happier with what the city has to offer.

Healthier and more creative cuisine is coming to the forefront, and the city finally has a booming veggie-friendly scene that looks like it is here to stay. The growing list of places with plenty of meat-free options around town means it’s possible for vegetarians to finally escape the routine of eating out on a limited menu while their carnivorous companions have it made. Here’s the first of a series of plant packed restaurants that will make all veggies happy.

Healthy, tasty & sustainable!

The ‘flexitarian’ menu at Flax and Kale will please both vegetarians and their pescatarian friends. The menu is chock-full of veggie goodness—hearty salads, hummus platters, flavoursome pastas and raw dishes abound—with a dose of blue fish-based dishes for those looking to stock up on their omega 3s.

On weekends you will find this place jammed packed with trendy people searching for healthy brunch options and a cool place to drink cold pressed juices, veggie mylks or a healthy smoothie while catching up on life. How can you resist with  awesome names like: virus killer and party recovery? You’ll find one you fall in love with for sure.
