Juicy Jones – vegetarian and vegan food in Barcelona

Vegetarian and vegan friends in Barcelona!!! I know it is quite difficult for you to find a place to eat properly in jamon-loving spain. Therefore I am even happier to introduce you.... JUICY JONES - a vegan and vegetarian restaurant in Barcelona!!! Juicy Jones vegan vegetarian restaurant Barcelona
In Juicy Jones you get really good, tasty and healthy food without any animal products.
To be honest: I am not vegan, not even vegetarian.. but I do love this restaurant. A vegan friend invited me one day to go there and try it..I was deeply surprised how good and tasty vegan food can be. 
They also offer really good fruit juices, smoothies and shakes - delicioso drinks, which give you an energy boost.
You can enjoy the Menu del Dia, which gives you a choice of appetizer, main course, dessert, and beverage, for a very reasonable price of 8,50 €. You should definitely try the "Thali" there, one of the best I have ever had.
Juicy Jones restaurant barcelona
Juicy Jones has a really funky, kind of  "Gaudi-esque" design inside, which seems a bit psychedelic. Basically the walls are as bright and colorful as a nicely filled fruitbowl. So sometimes it might be a bit difficult to concentrate on the menu without getting distracted by the design of the restaurant. The staff is really friendly and you feel very welcome there. 
You can find this vegan spot just off the Ramblas, the closest Metro station is Liceu, the green line #3. Here a little video of Juicy Jones.. also interesting when you are not speaking spanish ;)

LECHUGA Superpizzas

Try the best pizzas in town!

Today I am NOT going to introduce you to another Tapas restaurant out of the countless ones we have in Barcelona, neither to a Paella restaurant.. no! Today I want to present you one my personal favorites (and of a lot other people here) in Barcelona: LECHUGA superpizzas! Lechuga is located in Carrer dels Escudellers, right in front of the popular “Los Caracoles” restaurant. You can easily get there from Plaza Reial or Las Ramblas.

“Ahh and if you search for the best pizza place in Barcelona, go to Lechuga.. wait, u have a piece of paper and a pen?.. I will write u down the address.. yeah.. there u go and u definitely have to try the goat cheese pizza with honey.. its amazing, u will never forget it”

I don’t know how often I said that since I am living here in Barcelona.

All the pizzas in Lechuga are made with best ingredients and fresh out of the oven! The guys in Lechuga have created awesome toppings, like: bacon and barbecue sauce or goat cheese with honey.. and lately they also had pizza with salmon. Besides that you can get pizza with rocket, pesto, chorizo, different kinds of cheese, spinach, pesto, ham, tuna and so on. They also always have pizzas for vegetarians..with artichokes, courgettes, sweet corn, pepper, mushrooms etc. They also provide bottles with extra barbecue sauce, honey, Tabasco sauce, spicy oil and oil with herbs if you want to pimp your pizza a bit or can’t get enough of the barbecue sauce (like me). The pizza slices are pretty big there and you get one for 2 €. A can of beer, coke etc. or a water is just 1 €. The guys there are really nice and in Lechuga you can really see everybody grabbing a slice of pizza there – from business men in suits to skaterboys.

When you are in Barcelona, do not miss this place! And don’t forget: TRY THE GOAT CHEESE PIZZA WITH HONEY! ;)

By the way..Escudellers is in general a really cool street off of the Ramblas with a lot of nice bars there (f.e.” Ryans” and the “Tequila Bar” with headphones everywhere). At the end of the street you will find the famous Plaza de George Orwell.

Restaurant El Chipiron in Barcelona

Outdoor dining, with stunning views over the old port of Barcelona   El Chipiron, worth visiting already just because of its fantastic location. This restaurant is located near shopping centre Maremagnum at the port of Barcelona and looks straight out on the water. Especially when the lights are on at night is this exceptionally beautiful.

It is possible to sit inside and enjoy the view, but the real enthusiast will still take a seat outside. You don´t have to be afraid of the cold because the tables are equipped with heating stoves, which also adds to the atmosphere.

The restaurant is well known for its seafood, which they prepared very professionally, so it is not a big surprise that there is an rich assortment of seafood and paella to be found on the menu. It is also possible, if you want to relive the moment, to take food home with you from the restaurant. You don’t have to worry if you are not a real fish enthusiast, Chipiron also offers great half chickens or steaks with potatoes. Definitely something worth trying! The service itself is friendly and helpful. Outside you'll get a warm welcome and you will be guided to a table, you don't even have to have a reservation. You don't speak Spanish? No problem! It might take a little bit longer, but the staff will try their best to give you the best service possible. Sunny terraces by the sea, private rooms and cozy corners, make El Chipiron a great place to relax and enjoy great food.

Visit their website for more information.
