nice surprise

4 Posted on 03 / 12 / 2014

Walking trough this lovely city I unexpectedly entered this store. First thing I saw was cheering me up. Soy, seitan, pate's, sauses, and a lot more. A lot of it, vegan friendly and biological.

Friendly, helpful people behind the counter, really doing their best to help you with everything you ask.

Pros: customer friendly, helpfull, several options
Cons: none

Nice little shop

Small shop with a nice selection of different organic and vegetarien products. We got fresh soy sausages and Tofu there(they also got burgers). They do not have organic vegetables(but seems like it does not exist in Spain?) Besides that, more or less what you can find in any health food store. Staff is very friendly and do speak some english.

Disappointing

2 Posted on 11 / 14 / 2010

This place had VERY little vegetarian food, just one type of soy sausage, and some vegetarian burgers. They were expensive and did not taste very good. They do have some dried food, but nothing you can't get at any supermarket.

If you want vegetarian soy products (sausages, burgers, mince, etc..) in Torrevieja, you should go to the "Iceland supermarket"


Cons: Pricy, few items

    Vegan products are hard to find in the Torrevieja region, only recently (like the last few months)are they being sold in supermarkets such as Carrefour but the prices are pretty similar anyway. This health food shop is the only place you can find vegan cheese, soya cream, vegan mayo, spelt flour and vital wheat gluten. I'd say you were unfortunate and your visit coincided with their delivery date. For me, this shop has been a life saver.

This is my life saver

This is a great health food shop that stocks lots of fabulous products such as Vital Wheat Gluten, Nutritional Yeast, TVP, organic flours, grains, pastas, almond and soya milk, soya cream, soya yoghurt, fresh tofu, seitan, vegan cheese, vegan margarine and lots lots more. Some things are cheap (like Vital Wheat Gluten - €2.50 for 500g, Nutritional Yeast - €2.65 for 150g plus all the flours (chickpea,rice,brown etc etc) are very reasonable and so is the pasta and TVP. Some things are more expensive like the Sheese - but hey at least they stock it and it is imported from the UK. All in all a most excellent shop that makes being vegan in Spain that little bit easier.

Pros: good selection, friendly Spanish speaking staff
Cons: fresh produce runs out quickly
