Review: As a half-Israeli, I must admit I adhere to the Jewish stereotype of being very, very cheap. THAT being said, I feel that spending money supporting vegan lifestyles, in fun, welcoming places like Gopals is TOTALLY worth the economic invenstment. I ate there twice in my short stay in Barcelona, and spent 4 Euros the first day on a veggie burger, but took the choice of getting it with fries instead of a bun. I thought that would mean I'd get the burger, veggies, and sauce on "patatas bravas" (essentialy hunks of friend potato) but in this I was sorely, sorely disappointed. It was literally a dry patty on the potatoes, which were very plain and I didn't even finish (and I always finish). THAT being said, the next day I returned with vigour and vim, and asked the nice man working there to give me a good burger. It was a patty with avocado. I wished it had had some tomato and lettuce on it, but for 4 Euros it was VERY delicious and filling. Redemption!!! Great atmosphere, opens onto a square, very nice workers, very vegan-indie-looking people who frequent it. This one girl was feeding her dog an apple, hah. Worth a visit!
