Madrid Vegan Guidebook
Helping You Eat Plant-based in Spain’s capital
Are you worried about staying vegan in Spain’s capital?
Concerned you’ll only have bread and olives to eat
while sitting next to hanging ham legs?
Heard others scoff at the prospect of being vegan in Spain
while they insincerely wish you:
Sounds pretty frustrating, right?
Most often when we hear the word Spain, it’s followed by jamón (Spanish cured ham) and/or bullfighting.
Spain’s culture doesn’t sound vegan-friendly…
One must conclude that the only “authentic” Spanish experience is…
…to abandon all hopes of being vegan in Spain altogether.
What about the Spanish Vegans?
Ask a Spanish vegan and they’ll tell you.
“That’s not my culture.”
There are millions of Spanish who identify as vegans and continue to be vegans despite all the hanging ham legs.
Do you think Spaniards who identify as vegan
lament on missing out on the “authentic” Spanish experience?
Not with Madrid’s incredible vegan scene!
Going super strong with over 30 plus all-vegan establishments to visit, vegan Madrid shows no signs of stopping! This means many places all over the city where everyone has a clear understanding of veganism – no debates about dairy, honey or silk.
Spaniards live in a brazen animal consumption culture,
so naturally, their reaction is very vegan
(though plant-based folk will not feel alienated here).
This has fueled a nascent vegan scene exploding from birth.
Throughout Madrid, in just only a few years, you can find a plethora of places to visit, and things to do, all while not partaking in any practices that harm others, nonhuman animals included, and this one planet we all share.
With so many 100% vegan places, you would guess correctly that there’s even more vegan food on offer in nonvegan places.
The sheer number of places will more than
Anyone who says you can’t be vegan in Madrid…
…has clearly never tried!
So you may be thinking – where’s a Spain newbie to start?
If only you knew a vegan Spain veteran or two to lend you a hand…
This is where we
You already know a couple of vegans…
who lived and immersed themselves in Spanish culture…
Not just eating mostly vegan…
…not just 99% vegan while occasionally giving up and just choking down the jamón.
We actually lived and worked in Madrid
while meeting incredible people and making friends
while exploring the vegan scene,
trying all the amazing food,
and attending all sorts of events centered on not harming anyone in the process.
We can personally confirm from experience:
Vegans can have an “authentic” Spanish experience
as genuine as the next traveler’s.
I’ve known Sam and Veren online since 2016. I then finally met them irl in 2018, I travelled with Sam through Belgrade and stayed with them both in their home in Madrid. I’d trust them with literally anything, they are kind, thoughtful, honest people who give sound advice and look cool doing it. Their blog is not really like other blogs in that it’s high-quality, trustworthy and conscious of the world around it. If there’s one thing these guys are about, it’s quality.

We cannot say enough amazing things about this book! Thank you, thank, thank you for such a perfect resource. It has made our trip to Madrid our best yet! From knowing exactly where and when to find the best vegan food to help with public transportation and even helpful Spanish words and phrases to make us feel more confident when ordering / reading the menus. We love everything about it. We have also heard a ton of people tell us it must be so difficult traveling in Spain as vegans and we’re like ‘Whaaaat!?!?’. We have basically been eating our way through Madrid and loving every minute!

Alternative Travelers: they are THE vegan Madrid experts! While they have a ton of info on their site nothing can beat a guidebook in your hands and I found it especially handy having it on Kindle, which meant I could search on my Kindle while I was on the go in Madrid. I really liked how they’ve arranged it into different areas, so I could search on Kindle based on what neighbourhood I was in at the time! This guidebook was really invaluable in planning my trip to Madrid (I wanted to make sure I ate in all the best vegan places). If you’re vegan and you’re going to Madrid then you definitely need a copy of this guidebook in your bag!

I cannot recommend this book enough! There are a surprisingly few number of Vegan Guides for Madrid despite the plethora of vegan cafes and stores in the city. This guide puts them all together. Its really convenient for yourself or for when you may have vegan guests visiting. A must have!
Julie R, fellow vegan badass currently living in Madrid
I’ve lived in Madrid for over five years, and in that time I’ve discovered some great vegan and vegetarian options. Thanks to the new Madrid Vegan Guidebook, I’ve discovered even more! One of my favorite chapters is “Dog Friendly Restaurants”, since that way my maltese Lola can join me for dinner! Another very useful chapter is “Where to Eat When Everything Else is Closed”, since I’m a free-spirited American at heart, and can’t always remember to follow Spanish social customs! Highly recommended and very useful for all of us vegetarians and vegans.

Oh! How I wish I had this book when I was in Spain. The Madrid Vegan Guidebook covers routine food obstacles for visitors like: where to eat between lunch and dinner when many restaurants are closed and where to get a substantial breakfast. It goes on to provide comprehensive information on where to find healthy, vegan, vegetarian, raw and organic food. The section on vegan versions of traditional Spanish cuisine is particularly helpful so visitors can experience the authentic flavors of the culture. Also useful are the sections with Spanish language phrases to use when ordering, transportation tips and the world of Spanish grocery stores. Overall, the information and insights feel trustworthy because it is clear that the authors, themselves vegan, are writing from direct personal experience.
Next time I am in Spain, and there will be a next time, I will spend more time in Madrid, and will be sure to take this guidebook with me.
