Restaurant The Green spot
The Green Spot is a restaurant specialized in preparing healthy gastronomy, mainly for vegans, and for non-vegans too. Very close to the Basilica of Santa María del Mar, in the Gothic area in Barcelona. In the menu, you will find a wide range of recipes, all carefully prepared, with colorful presentations, full of excellent ingredients of the highest quality and maximum freshness.
There are a few vegan-friendly items you might want to try in the restaurants:
– Patatas bravas sauce for boiled or roasted potatoes but even just on some bread!
– Romesco sauce is a traditional Catalan sauce made of almonds and roasted red peppers. It’s delicious on roasted vegetables or bread and is traditionally eaten with calcots (spring onions) at a spring onion barbecue.
– Gazpacho: typical cold soup made up of tomatoes, onions, oil, garlic, and bread normally eaten in the summer season.
– Horchata, a drink made from chufa, or tiger nuts (many brands add milk but this one’s suitable for vegans).
There are a surprising number of accidentally vegan foods in supermarkets like a hot chocolate mix for churro dipping, frozen churros, chocolate sauce for ice cream and caramel sauce, among others. Our recommended vegan supermarkets are:

You’ll definitely want also to check out the local markets! there are some fantastic fruit and veg stalls. It’s like a farmer’s market that runs every day except Sundays, usually, and they’re very local.
Apart from La Boqueria, the famous market off Las Ramblas, most of the markets in Barcelona are not frequented by tourists. The city’s put a lot into regenerating the markets and they are fantastic, the fruits and vegetables are higher quality but also cheaper.
In addition to fruits and vegetables, you’ll usually find stalls that sell spices, nuts, dried beans, olive oils, bread and even Japanese and Middle Eastern stalls selling tahini.
