Barcelona Vegetarian Restaurants

Thursday, September 29, 2005


Last week I went to the reasonably new Sucursal on C/ Comercio with a friend. I have been there a few times before and this time it was the usual visit with someone who's not a veggie.
They put on their blackboard outside that they have a vegetarian option, so that's what I had. First course was some vegetarian tallarines (fideo), stir fried in soy sauce with vegetables. The pasta was very stodgy and seemed like it had been cooked (overly) many hours before. I was hungry however, and it went down a treat as it was full of flavour. Next was the only vegetarian option for main course, which was a vegetarian cous-cous. I'm not the best fan of cous-cous as I find it's often prepared without any regard towards the flavour and just as an after-thought for veggies who have no taste buds. This did little to change my opinion and I ate less than 1/4 of the dish. As the menu includes coffee or dessert, I opted for the former. You get a drink included in the menu and I can't honestly remember the exact price, but it was around 10€.
Verdict? If you're starving, live next door and are eating with a non-veg friend, it's ok. But otherwise, stay at home or make the effort to look elsewhere.
