By | 16 July, 2011 | 0 comments

Although the Spanish are still not too keen on vegetarian food, in the last few years with the influence of foreign tourism and the changing taste in food and food awareness, more and more vegetarian restaurants have been springing around in the city.

The area around Sol and the centre is probably where most of them concentrate. In the area of Huertas, a well-known night life area just minutes walk from Sol we can find Artemisa, a vegetarian restaurant with a varied menu. Artemisa is in Calle Ventura de la Vega, 4. The meals timetables are very Spanish, between 10.30 and 16.00 for lunch and 21.00 and 24.00 for dinners. They also have a tasting menu to share between two people at 25 Euros and take-away dishes.

Another vegetarian restaurant in Huertas is ¡Viva la Vida! in Calle Huertas, 57. This restaurant offers a new concept of vegetarian food, they have a buffet counter where you pay depending on what you consume. The restaurants doubles up as tea-room and you can enjoy a selection of organic herbal teas.

La Biotika is probably one of the oldest vegetarian restaurants in Madrid, situated not far from the other two in Calle Amor de Díos, 3, it is open between 10.00 and 23.00 except Sunday evenings. Their menu is around 10 Euros and they also have a tasting platter with little samples of all the plates at around 14 Euros during the week and 15 at weekends. The space is small but cosy and at the entrance you will find a little shop where you can find some delicious vegetarian products.
