Brunch at Flax and Kale passage

The past weekend my best friend came to visit me here in Barcelona, what a weekend we had. Gosh, we ate a whole lot of delicious food. And one place I just had to show her was Flax and Kale Passage. Plus, what better way to enjoy ourselves with good food and company?

Seriously good. I just love that we can share the plates from the menu, they give you two pieces in each plate, it’s perfect! This way you also can enjoy more by trying more things. This sweet gluten-free waffle with dairy free almond ice cream, was pure heaven!

What amazes me is the way they succeed in making all gluten-free taste so good. It has a great consistency and you couldn’t have guessed it’s without gluten! Also I just love how beautifully they serve the dishes!

The portobello mushroom toast with poached egg, roasted chickpeas accompanied with veggies and hummus. Mmm, that one was sooo good.

How cool is this? We got to sit in the turmeric room. You can close the doors and enjoy privacy, it’s so cozy, absolutely love this idea!

Eating brunch here in Barcelona is a big thing here. No wonder why… Get the same experience next time you visit Barcelona, highly recommended:)

Flax & Kale Passage • Barcelona

This restaurant is one of my favorites to go out and eat when in Barcelona. It lies in a passage like the name says. It is very cool to walk through it, leading you the way to the restaurant!

Here they serve everything gluten free and offer a flexitarian menu! Flexitarian means that it’s a flexible diet since you can eat fish and egg, but excluding meat. Here you will find plant based meals, fish dishes and gluten-free pizzas! You might be skeptical to this in the beginning, wondering if it’s as good as a the “original” served food.

The answer is yes! It’s really tasty! So go with an open mind and you will be amazed by how tasty it is. Plus you won’t question about going there after your first visit. It’s healthy food which tastes great too, what more to ask for?! I think I’ve convinced you right??

As you can see, it’s a really cool place to sit and eat too!

Aaand, they make healthy sweets and desserts! For a big dessert lover like me, who absolutely looove sweets, (not very proud of it though hehe) this is a huge relief!!!

Last time when I was there, I tried the plant based chocolate mousse with nut ice cream. It wasn’t bad at all! Normally it’s like; you can’t replace the “bad stuff” with a healthy version, but here at Flax and Kale, they sure can…

Here is another prove of them succeeding with a plant based meal which looks and tastes the same… I would even say better! They have replaced the scrambled eggs and pulled pork with plant based ingredients such as tofu and jack fruit. Seriously, you don’t miss the original flavors at all. This badass right here offers more taste, and happiness to your belly!

Here is the address of the restaurant:

Carrer de Sant Pere Més Alt, 31-33, 08003 Barcelona

Sunday means pancakes

At least from my understanding and point of view;)

And there are so many delicious pancakes to order, here are some of my favorite picks…

Brunch & Cake ~ Barcelona

A super yummy matcha pancake, so good! And first time trying it. I’ve also tried matcha in other pastries, and the flavor is really good.

The gluten-free ricotta pancake with granola!!! Mmm

Flax and Kale ~ Barcelona

I love this restaurant, they have so many other delicious and healthy plates to offer. The atmosphere here is incredible, sitting on the roof top and being surrounded by flowers and plants, made me feel complete. Definitely a place to visit when in Barcelona!

Oh, and in my opinion these two restaurants serves the best and healthier pancakes in town!

What are you waiting for? Go and get your Sunday pancake, you deserve it when the week has finished:)
