Barcelona: Flax & Kale

On my spontaneous two-day trip to Barcelona earlier this week, I couldn’t leave the city without squeezing in a visit to Flax and Kale, a health-focused, trendy “flexitarian” restaurant, meaning it’s nearly-but-not-quite veggie. The cosmopolitan vibes reminded me of somewhere between New York and London whist actually being located just off Las Ramblas.

The menu is almost entirely plant-based, without feeling at all restrictive, and explores some delicious raw options as well as plenty of gluten-free alternatives. I ordered the açai bowl (of course!) with housemade Brazilian chestnut granola crumble, hemp seeds, banana, blueberries, agave syrup and goji berries.

As for the drinks, the juices are all cold-pressed, in order to preserve the maximum nutritional value of their organic ingredients and the smoothies are packed full of superfoods ranging from maca to spirulina. I opted for the Tropical Superfood smoothie made from coconut milk, frozen banana, papaya, mango, pineapple, mac and goji berries, which tasted like a fruity, melt-in-your-mouth ice-cream.

Whilst the price is higher han some of the local tapas bars, I believe that it is perfectly reasonable considering the top-notch quality of the all the fresh produce.
Whether you are vegan, vegetarian, omnivore, celiac or anything else – I can’t recommend this gem in Barcelona highly enough!
