BLUE FOUNDATION CAFE – RAW FOOD IN BARCELONA
The culinary associations for Barcelona are usually all about the tapas, paella, sangria and calçots.
There are people who have their eating habits instilled in their minds for decades and it is hard to change them or introduce to them something new and different. But if you are one of those people who are not scared to try something quite different from everything else – we found a unique place in Barcelona to do it!
Actually we were looking for it on purpose, with no high expectations to find something like this In Barcelona. The name of the place is Blue Foundation El Café. So to the point – what makes this place so different and special? The café restaurant is vegetarian/vegan with the detail that they offer quite a few options as far as “raw food” is concerned. The raw food dishes they offer are unprocessed, organic and uncooked. If you are not familiar with the concept of raw food – in short its main idea is to eat the food raw (vegan food – so excluding animal products) so it better preserves all the nutrients and it is more ecologically friendly. You will be surprised to find the raw chocolate cakes and candies, made of real natural chocolate, with no artificial ingredients – and they taste better and richer than the baked ones! We also tried the raw carrot cake they offer – and we still talk about it – was definitely the tastiest one we have ever tried. The best part is the calories are much less than in a regular cake and it is healthier.
The coffee shop is part of the Blue Foundation which an art center, offering its visitors a contemporary and modernist art exhibitions. The Café and the foundation are located in the same building on Carrer Princesa 57. The working hours are from 9:30 to 20.00 from Tuesday to Sunday.
