First Review by Ricecube

Amazed - Edit

Tirauki is in one of the most busy streets a Friday or Saturday night, surrounded but several pintxos bars. But in this place, almost all the pintxos are vegan!

I tried different types of vegan Spanish tortillas, a tofu ball covered in a tasty sauce and quinoa, another pintxo with with seitan and a couple of beers. The food is gorgeous, tasty, imaginative and inexpensive. The place was packed, with an alternative, open and nice vibe. Really friendly staff.

nice Vegan Pintxos in Bilbao's oldtown - Edit

Tiraulki is the typical basque bar with a big difference: almost all their "pintxos" are vegan.

They have lots of different pintxos without any animal ingredient, one of my favorites is the Avocado Sandwich, you should try it!

They change their variety of "pintxos" almost every week, it's nice to be able to try new options

Pros: nice staff

Cons: no menu available

Amazing Pintxos! - Edit

I went there by accident and it was amazing!
I wanted to eat some vegan pintxos but I wasn't finding any till I go to this place.
The staff was amazing, they explained me all the pintxos available and made some specials (vegan) to me. It was an amazing meal and it was all so tasty.
An amazing experience that I really recommend!

yummy vegan tapas - Edit

We found this bar on Happy Cow and were thrilled to arrive and have 6 vegan tapas to choose from (only 1 meat option which we were advised not suitable for us) all very appetising and filling. We had 4 each and were stuffed! The chocolate cake was great too! Very inexpensive night out, 3 x 4 tapas, 5 drinks and 1 cake = 26€. Great relaxed atmosphere too.

Nice Vegan Pintxos - Edit

I found this places in Bilbao's Old Town courtesy of HappyCow. There were at least 4 or 5 vegan pintxos, alongside a similar number of non-veg ones. I tried a sandwich with tofu and seitan, a small tofu salad on bread, and another pintxo with quinoa. All were really good, and at less than €2 each you can definitely try a few. My non-veg friends enjoyed the vegan options as much as the ones with meat. Staff were helpful in explaining the food (in Spanish - don't know how much English they speak!).

Atmosphere was fine, it's got a kind of 'alternative' vibe.

WOW! - Edit

I had spotted the word 'veganos' outside this bar late one night. Having not eaten we went into this lively bar and tried to get something. Being late there was only one vegan pintxos left. The friendly proprietor invited us to come back the next day, as they made 7 vegan pintxos daily. So we did! Pedro took the time to explain each plate, (we had all 7), nimble with the Google translate! Each was delicious and sublime. Obviously, each plate is small but that just means you can try them all. Pedro came over as very passionate and enthusiastic about the food he was creating. Friendly vibes and great food in the heart of the old town.

Pros: exquisite food, great value, friendly helpful staff
