Best Vegetarian and Vegan Restaurants in Barcelona
It’s finally here, the ultimate guide to the best vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Barcelona!
I asked in my Instagram Stories if you would prefer a vegetarian or a vegan guide, and the answer was a tie so I thought I would do both. As always, please let me know if you think I missed a place, I will be happy to add it! I also want to add that there are places in this list I haven’t visited myself, but have been recommended to me.
