Join me on a vegan tapas crawl around the El Tubo area of Zaragoza, Spain. This part of the old city is a maze of narrow, winding streets that are famous for being filled with tapas bars! You may not think of Spain as a very vegan-friendly country, but there are plenty of vegan dishes in Spanish cuisine, and many of the best ones are tapas!
On this tour we visit a popular bar called Umami that serves up plenty of seasonal, veggie-based tapas. We then move on to a Lebanese-influenced tapas bar called Bar Fenicia that serves a mix of traditional Spanish dishes and Lebanese favorites (hellooooo, hummus!).
And then finally, the last stop on the tour was a complete surprise to us, and one that you definitely don't want to miss! [UPDATE May 2020: Unfortunately, two of these restaurants have since closed.]
Check out the video below to see all of our delicious discoveries:
