Before I traveled to Granada, I was a bit worried that it would be difficult to find vegan options. After all, it is a small city, at least when compared to Madrid or Barcelona. However, I was happy to find out that they had plenty of options for vegans/vegetarians and four fully vegan restaurants.
El Oju (Calle General Narvaez 4)
El Piano (Calle Santiago 2)
Paprika (Cuesta de Abarqueros 3)
Hicuri (Plaza Girones 4)
This is actually the only place where I ate. I checked out a couple of other places but they were empty at the time I went there, which is never a good sign. Hicuri however, was always full of locals and tourists, and the food was delicious every single time. They offer a menu del día, and for about 13€ you get a choice of a first course, second course, dessert, bread and a drink. The price is more than what I’ve used to pay for the menu del día, but I still think that it was a really good value because everything tasted so good and fresh.
Check out the picture of menu del día: salmorejo soup, lasagne, and tiramisu for dessert. Especially I was impressed how good was the tiramisu. One of the best tiramisus I’ve ever had, and I’m a tiramisu snob!
Eco De·leite (Calle Sta. Escolástica 1)
This is 100% organic ice cream shop, and they offer plenty of vegan options. If I counted right, they had 22 vegan ice cream flavors. Awesome! I tried chocolate and coconut flavors.
EcoEcoShop (Buensuceso 6)
This is a small eco shop, and bakery and all of their bakery products are vegan. I tried their vegan empanadas and cakes and enjoyed everything.

Wow wish I had known about that ice cream shop when we were last in Granada!! We actually went on a gelato hunt but even the flavors labeled “vegan” at a lot of the small places actually contain milk (wtf?). We went to Hicuri too and really loved it. We tried El Piano also (our last morning there after walking by at night and not wanting to go in because their fluorescent lighting was so off-putting at night lol) and it was kind of disappointing. Pretty pricey, truly terrible coffee (like muddy water) and just eh food. So sad! We didn’t try Paprika but a friend recently traveled to Granada and tried it and she said it was really good. And she’s not even vegan or vegetarian!
Yes, it was El Piano where I went and it was completely empty and it just didn’t look nice. I wished I would have tried Paprika but I was staying on the other side of the town. Next time!
Vegan tiramisu? What did they use instead of cheese? I also love tiramisu, so I’m skeptical it could be the best. 😉
