I was surprised to find a vegetarian restaurant in Poblenou. Nicely surprised. But there it was all quietly inviting and full of vegetarian delights inveigling me to insert them into myself (mainly via the mouth).
Anyway, enough silly, preambling is for losers. Here’s what you can get at Aguaribay:
Paninis that are made from home-made focaccia bread are €7 and are available with buffalo mozzarella, sliced tomatoes, and basil; gorgonzola, asparagus, sliced tomatoes; or tempeh with grilled sweet pepper, rocket and carrot pesto.
Burritos come with either saute’d vegetables and manchego cheese or with black beans, mushrooms and manchego cheese served with fresh salsa (pictured below) – and cost €8.
They also have a daily blackboard where current dishes are displayed such as a daily fresh pasta dish, a fresh risotto dish, (both costing €12), different types of quiche (all made with organic eggs, seasonal vegetables and local cheese) and empanadas for €6.
On the tapas menu you can select from nachos served with black beans, emmenthal, guacamole and salsa with cilantro or ‘suca dip’ which is hummus, guacamole, artichoke dip, crudités and toasted bread. These both cost €8.
For raw vegans there is sadly just one dish – the Detox salad – which consists of assorted sprouts, apple, carrot, tofu and peanuts – so not entirely raw but you could negotiate a bit.
For non-raw vegans there is a Camperola salad with goat cheese, croutons, pesto and green leaves. Salads cost €8.
There is also soup and a cheese board of artisan cheeses served with seasonal marmalade and organic bread. €10.
To drink they have organic wines, and an organic cava. Eco beers come from nearby Montseny.
Non boozy drinks include a range of coffees (all available with organic soya milk), natural orange juice, Bionades, and a range of organic teas such as Yogi, Clipper and QI white tea.
There are croissants, brownies and home made cakes for dessert.
The atmosphere is casual with an informal cafeteria-type area at the front with high tables and chairs and magazines to read, and a formal dining area behind. The décor is modern, colourful and funky. Jarring dance music was playing whilst I was there but I guess that was just to keep the staff awake as it was a Sunday early afternoon and I was the only customer.
Good service. Smiley waitress. And they have wi-fi. Tea and cake whilst you work or twat about on Facebook on a Sunday afternoon – Ooooo nice!
No dogs allowed though – boooooo!
