Respond to Review of Gopal - Vegan Deli
Review: My partner and I were in Barcelona in April and I was blown away by the range of vegan eateries in the city. Gopal was a stand out for its cakes and deserts. Each day I was there they had at least 3 cakes to choose from, as well as chocolate covered donuts and a bagel type pastry. The triple layer chocolate praline cake was heaven. My non-vegetarian/vegan partner was amazed by how "real" tasting it was. I know that Gopal order their cake from from a local cake wholesaler which is a wise choice as they are simply divine. I also had the carrot cake with vegan cream cheese on another occasion which was also lovely. The chocolate covered donut was the first in its kind I'd seen (in vegan form that is) so that was a nice surprise. I'd visited a market on the first day I was in Barcelona and a vegan stall was selling the best chocolate brownies I have ever tasted in my life. I was sad to think I'd never get to have them again since the market was only on over 2 days, but to my absolute delight when I visited Gopal the last time, they had the exact brownies in! We also had the burgers and fries (more like chunky roast potato pieces) and even my chicken loving boyfriend enjoyed his. They had a bit of a "fake, mass produced" taste to them but were yummy none-the-less and really hit the spot for a junk food fix. The fries were delightful with a heavenly Thousand Island dressing type sauce. The English menu was a bonus, and the staff spoke English well which was helpful. There is some animal rights information posters and cards around, with some graphic images which although never pleasant to see, was good to see because it got the word of animal welfare further across other than simply the vegan food. I highly recommend a visit to Gopal, especially for the cakes! Amazing!!
