They say eating in Spain is difficult for vegans, however, we did a great job of finding amazing food from Madrid. Although it took some research and searching around, we managed to get by. Here are some photos from our eats in Madrid with restaurant names and meal titles included. Enjoy!
This small outdoor restaurant is located in Plaza Mayor. There are several outdoor restaurants in this area that all serve the same meals at the same prices so pick a spot and eat up! This meal was completely vegan with carrots, red peppers, a lemon, lima beans, rice, and artichoke.
2. Cafeteria Los Jamonimos
3. La Encomidena
This all vegan restaurant has a plethora of options. These four tacos with soy, corn, tomatoes, guac and soy filled me right up! Something I found to be the coolest thing about this restaurant was that all the plates and most of the decoration was hand made with pottery.
4. The Urban Bites
Although you can’t tell by the photo, these donuts are mini and can be eaten in one bite. It’s always a good day when I can also find some vegan donuts!
A warm black bean arepa in Spain hit the spot. We also ordered an appetizer of wedged potato fries but those were eaten up before a photo was taken!
6. Walk to Wok
Custom food is the best for vegans! I ordered brown rice as my base, with tofu, spinach, and mixed peppers with teriyaki sauce.
7. Cafe Prado
8. Cafe & Tapas
Noodles, mushrooms, red peppers, sesame seeds, and a delicious teriyaki sauce.
9. Taco Bell
Late nights mean taco bell in Spain. I was surprised when I ordered my Crunch Wrap (substitute the meat with beans, no cheese or sour cream) and it came out with some fries! I also ordered a side of chips, salsa, and guac.
10. Viva Chapata
Vegan burger, mexican style with cheese, guac, and corn paired with some yummy fries!
11. Chocolateria San Gines
Although this isn’t vegan, it is a must in Spain for others! This restaurant is the most well known in Madrid for chocolate churros so be sure to go here and get some famous desserts!
