A vegan-friendly tapas route in Spain

Restaurants throughout the provinces of Malaga and Granada are participating in Spain's Veggie Vuelta, which runs from November 2 to November 5.

From November 2 to 5, more than 350 vegan tapas will be available in over 200 pubs, restaurants, and cafés across Spain for the second year of the Veggie Vuelta tapas trail.

The Spanish Vegetarian Union (UVE) organizes the Veggie Vuelta to promote and make 100% plant-based, high-quality cuisine visible in restaurant settings, as well as to dispel vegan food biases. Traditional tapas such as croquettes will be available in a vegan version, as well as foreign cuisine and other gourmet inventions, at participating taverns and restaurants.

According to David Román, president of the UVE, there is still some skepticism regarding vegan cuisine in terms of flavor, diversity, and nutrition, which is why the Veggie Vuelta tries to "debunk myths and show people that vegan food can be healthy, tasty, and appetizing."
Veggie Vuelta is one of the events planned for World Vegan Day, which is November 1st. Furthermore, certain cities will provide parallel events to the tapas route, such as talks, tastings, and exhibits, with the goal of raising awareness of the relevance and necessity of a diet shift. According to the organization, "eating a 100% plant-based diet not only improves our health, but also has a positive impact on the environment and, of course, on animals."

Restaurants that are taking part

The cities of Almera, Seville, Cádiz, Málaga, and Granada are all taking part in this year's Veggie Vuelta. Marbella, San Pedro de Alcántara, and Genalguacil are among the Malaga towns and villages taking part. La Vegana, Rkula, Mimo, Kinoa, Estación Quimera, Caad, Venta las Cruces, and El Patio are among the Malaga establishments taking part.

Vegan tapas are available in the following Granada restaurants: Milonga, El Chigrin, Wilf Food, las Delicias, La Buena Vida, La Qarmita, Umami Sushi, La Goma, Roots Restaurant, Hotel Barceló Carmen Granada, and Elite.

Veganism is a developing worldwide trend. Restaurants and shops are increasingly offering 100 percent plant-based options. According to UVE, the veggie population is predicted to be 11.4 percent of Spanish adults, including vegetarians, vegans, and flexitarians, totaling roughly 4.5 million, according to the latest report by the consultancy company Lantern titled "The Green Revolution 2023." In Spain, 3.5 million consumers identify as flexitarians, 670,000 as vegetarians, and roughly 276,000 as vegans, for a total of over 4.5 million people.
