Pros: Vegan options available , Clean interior

Many vegan options

When we visited they had about six different vegan empanadas. I tried three of them. They tasted okay, but nothing special. Wouldn’t go there again.

Más o menos

Not bad but there only 2 vegan options, also a but overpriced for that one little thing. However the seller told me that they’re handmade.

Cons: Small list of vegan options

Muchas opciones veganas

No es el único sitio con empanadillas argentinas veganas pero sí el que más opciones tiene. Me alegró mucho ver que tenían toda una sección bien separada con las opciones veganas 😍 Probé la de carne vegetal picante y la de pollo thai, ambas ricas aunque tampoco impresionantes tengo que decir 😅 Además, la chica parecía tener un mal día y eso influye en la experiencia general del lugar por lo que también me toca decirlo 😅 Sorry

A favor: Muchas opciones veganas

En contra: Me faltó sentir buen rollito 😅 Sorry

Pros: Muchas opciones veganas

Cons: Me faltó buen rollito 😅 Sorry

Best vegan empanadas in Barcelona

I have went around Barcelona trying to find a good vegan empanada and this one definitely wins! They have rotating vegan options and had about 5 flavors to choose from, they were all delicious.

We tried multiple days to come here and try them but they were always out of vegan options waiting for their ingredients. On the last day the board was still crossed out on vegan but we walked inside anyways and if you look at the case there’s a large “vegan” sign over the plant based ones. Always just go inside to double check because they make their empanadas multiple times a day. Well worth visit!

Good quick lunch

I had one of each of their 4 vegan empanadas and they were all perfectly pleasant. I was in a hurry and got them heated to go and was out of the shop quickly. No complaints.

La Fábrica

They only had one vegan empanada the day I stopped by. It was filled with vegetables and was a bit bland. My biggest gripe with this empanada is that it was very dry. There’s a lot of potential though. Nevertheless, it doesn’t hurt to stop by here when you’re traveling with a non-vegan. My non-vegan friend loved the other options.

A bit hypocritical..

La Fabrica definitely doesn’t aim for vegan customers, it is very meat focused and everything is cobbled with speciestist propaganda which makes their vegan selection on the menu a bit ridiculous. Also they took the tahini-tofu option of the menu and offer only two vegan options now. They are tasty, though, and a pro is, that this is a fast and cheap option with long opening hours. Still, as an ethical vegan you won’t feel very comfortable there.

Cheap empanadas

The empanadas are good and cheap, though not the best ones I had. They didn't have the Tahini ones anymore, therefore they only have 2 vegan options now.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Only 2 vegan options , Mediocre

3 vegan options of empanadas

Nice place for a quick snack. I've tried the wok empanada and the sundried tomato one. Both were very tasty and it's cheap. €1,50 each.

Good and cheap

I had both vegan options, you get them warmed up, they were quite good. 2 plus a drink for 5 euros is a great deal. You cannot sit inside which makes it a take away

Pros: 2 vegan options

Ok empanada

The empanada was pretty good but not the best I had. Also, they don’t have the one with tahini anymore, so they only have two vegan options.

Good for a little snack

Great selection of empanadas if you are a meat eater or vegetarian. There were 3 vegan options on the menu, but only 1 available when I went: the wok. It was tasty and moist although nothing special. I have seen a few more local empanada places around the gothic quarter that advertised vegan options (I just couldn’t find them again) and I’d be tempted to eat from one of them rather than here next time.

Also- my vegan empanada was put in the same bag as my friend’s meat empanadas so if that bothers you make sure to specify a separate bag!

Good snack

I got the wok empanada and the tomato one. Both very flavorful! I would have been interested in a spicier one, but I still really enjoyed both.

Pros: 2 vegan options, Menu in español and English

Cons: Few drink options

Cheap vegan eats!

Delicious vegan (and omni) food for cheap in the heart of Barcelona. Definitely worth checking out and great for on-the-go. The Wok and Sundried Tomato flavours are amazing, sadly the Tofu Tahini option wasn’t available when I went.

Pros: Cheap!, Great location, Food was delicious

Cons: Meat options :(, Only 3 vegan options, Quite busy

Good lunch option!

I went to the one on Barceloneta near the beach. They were out of the tomato based vegan one and I wanted 3 each of the vegan ones. I instead ordered the mushroom veggie one. All were somewhat tasty; I liked the crunch of their empanadas in particular. The wok was my favorite. For the €6.50 I paid, it was very reasonable and appropriately filling! Recommendable if you want a cheap, filling meal on the go

Pros: Cheap, Filling if you get 3 + drink, Good for on the go

Cons: 1 veg option was out. Possibly discontinued?

No options

They don't offer the vegan options all the time. They only offer 2 now and had neither when I came. Was very disappointed since the other empanadas looked really good.

They have three vegan empanada options. I had the Wok Empanada and the Tomate Seco Empanada and both were very good. They didn’t have the third vegan empanada available. The gentlemen behind the counter were very nice and welcoming and fluent in English. Also one of them was cute...

Pros: Three vegan options , Good customer service

Cons: They only serve empanadas and drinks , They have only one bathroom and it’s very small

Yummy snack

We ordered 12 vegan empanadas for 20€. The prizes are the same no matter if you choose vegan or non-vegan. Staff is friendly and you can take the empanadas with you to snack on the way.

Pros: Tasty

Cons: No place to sit inside
