It was great to see that Madrid hadn’t changed that much and to enjoy nice/long lunches in the sun con tapas y vino ;).
Back in 2005, money was a bit tight and I could not try many vegetarian restaurants over there. Last week end, I thus decided to try Vegaviana, a vegetarian restaurant located in the gay district of Chueca.
What we ate?
– Spinach & goat cheese cannelloni
– Vegetarian paella
– 3 Ice cream balls
– Vanilla soja cream
– 2 Glasses of house wine
– 2 cups of organic coffee
What I liked?
– The food served at the Vegaviana Restaurant is simple and good. Contrary to many vegetarian restaurants they do not try too hard… It’s just nice, simple food. I was there with a non-vegetarian friend and he really appreciated the fact that it wasn’t a “traditional vegetarian restaurant” – They even have a small selection of chicken dishes (free-range).
– Good value i.e. €34.40 for two people on a Saturday night
– Their vegetarian paella. I have been vegetarian for 11 years and that’s the 1st time in 11 years that I have eaten a good paella! Should really have thanked the chef for that 😉
– Very good service
What I did not like?
The dessert menu was quite small.
Other than wishing the dessert menu was bigger, the evening was great. I really liked the place and would definitely recommend it.
