Vegan Food in Gijon at Twist & Vegetal

Posted on 08 / 15 / 2014

Twist & Vegetal is a mid price restaurant spread over 3 floors. Nice and roomy, with an extensive vegetarian menu. Our Spanish is embarrassingly poor but the friendly staff understood that we were vegan and showed us the options that were available or that they could prepare fresh. Very accommodating.
The food was very tasty and fresh, although a tad 'old school' (I had stuffed aubergine my partner opted for stuffed roast pepper).
A pleasant evening in a nice atmosphere. The place would certainly benefit from labelling vegan options on the menu and maybe offering more contemporary meals.
I would certainly recommend Twist & Vegetal.

Pros: Friendly service, Pleasant atmosphere , Vegan options
Cons: Also sells meat, Vegan options a bit 'old school', Vegan options not clear on the menu

The vegetarian menu del dia is tasty and good value, with about 1/3 vegan options. The food is wholesome and filling with Moroccan and European themes. We had an Arabic salad (greens, dried fruit and nuts), vegetable soup, soy meatballs, and stuffed tomatoes. The mains came with rice and cous cous. The vegetarian restaurant is downstairs in the day time, but upstairs at night. It was busy at lunch when we went, but very quiet when we returned in the evening the next day. The upstairs cafe is huge, the downstairs restaurant a bit more intimate. The staff are friendly. A nice place, perhaps needs a few more vegan options.

Pros: Wholesome food, Moroccan and Spanish themes, 1/3 vegan options
Cons: Needs more vegan options
