Barcelona offers a multitude of alternatives to vegetarians and vegans
In fact, it is increasingly common to find vegetarian restaurants and/or vegans which are aware that their products, especially fruits and vegetables, are zero km, being more fresh and organic. This trend is also called “Slow food“, which is born in counterpart to fast food, with the following advantages:
1. Ecological: The international transport of food has a high environmental impact, the pollution caused by the fuel, the need for packaging …
2. Economic: It supports small and medium producers, who are unable to fight with the low prices that large corporations sell. It strengthens the local economy by generating employment.
3. Social: Consumers are more concerned about what they consume and aware that there are healthier and better alternatives at a local level.
We have made a selection of our favorite vegetarian restaurants, but keep in mind that there is a huge offer all around the city.
