Vegan Eats at Ruzafa District – Valencia, Spain (Vegan MoFo 2013 #5)

Few days ago, we explored the district of Valencia called Ruzafa and found two vegan-friendly eateries in the area. The district has more of a local crowd, which I love about. One of the eateries is not on Happy Cow Valencia. I will try their vegan cuisine sometimes this week. This is my last week here in Valencia, Spain.

There is a Ruzafa Market (Mercado de Ruzafa) in the district (read more here), an indoor public market which is about two blocks away from a vegetarian restaurant, Restaurante Copenhagen and about 15 minutes walk from the centre. Ruzafa Market offers all kind of fresh fruits, vegetables, and other non-edible products or services (flowers, shoe repair). They open Mon-Sat until 2pm.

On the way to Ruzafa District, it’s about 15 minutes walk from the flat or centre.



el bouet burger at ruzafa district, valencia, spain

El Bouet Burger is not mentioned on Happy Cow Valencia. The restaurant looks pretty modern and new. Their menu has few vegan options with labels, “vegano” (vegan in Spanish). All burgers are made from scratch. It is closed on Tuesdays.

For €12, you get a lunch combo meal available for dining in from Monday to Thursday, and available everyday (except Tuesday because they are closed) to go: vegan burger + fries + dessert + beverage. You can just get a vegan burger without the combo meal for €8. They also have a vegan croquette (four pieces) for €4.50.

I haven’t tried their food yet, but I thought it was worth mentioning this vegan-friendly place.

After visiting these two restaurants, we walked around the Ruzafa District and met a few lovely dogs. But I see more abandoned and feral cats on the streets (quite sad, but they are also fed).

Doni said it looks like me and I should dye my hair into this color. Should I? The word, “Limon” means lemon. I <3 Lemons!

Exiting the Ruzafa District – Valencia, Spain, it was only 7:30pm. It was still bright out.



what we’ve tried during week 3 in valencia, spain

Week 3, Valencia, SpainWeek 3, Valencia, Spain

During Week 3 (Sept 1-4, 2013), we loved these little fresh strawberries, they looked so perfect! 400g for €2.50 on sale at El Corte Inglés (read the post here).

We had the opportunity to try a Greek vegan cheeze brand Violife here in Spain and this product is a pizza cheese block. It shreds really easily and looks like a real block of cheese. It’s 100% vegan, gluten-free, soy-free and palm oil-free. They carry this product (pizza cheese block), creamy spreads, and cheese slices in a variety of flavors (original, tomato + basil, herbs, peppers, hot peppers, cheddar, mushrooms, olives, olive oil and pizza flavor). I will be reviewing all Violife products later this month when I have time.

Week 3, Valencia, Spain

This is one of our favorite vegan meals to make: tomato-based cous cous with sauteed courgette, grape tomatoes and Spanish onions (pretty cheap, too). We didn’t eat out for 3 weeks except for these vegan baked empanadillas at the grocery store & cafe, “Herbolario Navarro.” We hope to eat out during our last week in Spain, starting on Monday!

question of the day: Do you have your own favorite neighborhoods where you like to dine or eat out?
