Flax & Kale
Who says healthy can’t be delicious? Head to Flax & Kale in Barcelona for super food, healthy bites and beautiful design!
In the edgy neighborhood of Raval, Flax & Kale – part of the healthy restaurant group Teresa Carles -has opened a beautifully designed space. The ‘flexitarian’ restaurant has their focus on healthy food. No meat is served, but they offer a very varied menu full of either fish or vegetarian dishes.
The plates are so rich, even if you are not a vegetarian you won’t miss the meat. Expect traditional recipes like tacos, salads or pastas to be surprising because of the combinations of vegetables! Brunch, lunch or dinner, it is all equally delicious and very healthy.
But the reason Flax & Kale caught my eye, is the design. The building stands out on a little square in Raval, and inside it is a feast for the eyes. Industrial but colourful, spacious and bright. They even have a rooftop garden, a very pleasant spot to enjoy the sun and one of their healthy juices or smoothies! No time to sit down but craving a healthy shot? Then pop in and take a juice home, they sell them bottled as well!
It can be quite busy, especially during the weekends. You can comfortably wait for a table at the bar, or make a reservation on their website. It’s worth it for sure, and you’ll probably leave with a healthy and happy glow, just like me every time I pass by.
