With mild weather all year round, Alicante is the perfect destination for your next trip! Especially if you’re traveling in winter, Alicante might be worth considering. Traveling Alicante as a vegan? No problem, there are some great options for being vegan in Alicante. Let me tell you about my favorites.
If you’re looking for free things to do in Alicante, check out my blog post on traveling Alicante on a budget here.
Tip: You can also find most of the food in my highlights on my Instagram. I try to update these quite regularly. So, consider following me on Instagram to get food recommendations even before I post a new vegan food guide here.
MoMO Raw Vegan – my favorite for being vegan in Alicante
MoMO Raw Vegan was my absolute favorite vegan restaurant in Alicante. It’s located a little further away from the waterfront which is why I was debating going there at all. But man am I glad I did, it is sooo worth the walk. The place is small and feels very cozy and familiar which is exactly what they were aiming for, as Cristina, the owner of MoMO Raw Vegan explained to me. Cristina is a lovely woman and we had a great chat while I was eating at her restaurant. She explained the whole Spanish menu to me and even gave me some recommendations for other vegan and vegetarian restaurants in Alicante. Unfortunately, this was on my last day in Alicante so I didn’t get to try them all.
As for the food, everything is raw, vegan and gluten-free. You can order individual meals or go for a starter or dessert and a main course for 12€ or a starter, main and dessert for 15€, both including a parsley lemonade or water for free. Naturally, I went for the 3-course meal and what can I say? I was stoked about every single one of the courses that Cristina freshly prepared while I was in her restaurant. Because the food is raw and healthy, it doesn’t leave you feeling bloated but full and happy.
Is everything an option here? My favorite were the wraps with almond cheese but they were just the dish of the week. Try the cashew cheesecake. And definitely say hi to Cristina from me if you decide to check out her place – which you totally should!
Craving something sweet? Vegan Bombon is the place to go. You’ll have a selection of vegan cakes, cookies and other sweets that you can eat sitting in or take away. A lot of their choices (if not all of them) are gluten-free as well. I went here once with my mom who at first didn’t want anything but then changed her mind when she saw the cinnamon rolls. I came back another time for a chocolate croissant to go, so obviously I really liked it.
Crostata de Chocolate (a kind of chocolate cake) but everything I’ve tried from them tasted good, so you won’t make a bad choice.
Bodhi Green – a must-try as a vegan in Alicante
First things first, if you want to eat at Bodhi Green you should definitely book a table. Even though I came in in the afternoon and was on my own, I was lucky that I got a table and couldn’t stay for more than an hour because it was reserved for later. You should also be aware that Bodhi Green is more pricey than the other places I’ve been talking about. But what can I say? There’s a reason you have to book a table and pay a little more – my food was absolutely delicious. Honestly, one of the best meals I’ve had in a while.
I totally fell in love with the Rawvioli!
Mish Mish is located on Plaza de San Cristobal. They have a restaurant where they serve Arabic food and a tea lounge right next to each other. Since Arabic food has many vegan options, so does Mish Mish. All vegan options are clearly labeled, so they’re perfect for being vegan in Alicante. Whether you opt for a main or order a few mezze, you won’t be disappointed.
Order a few mezze, and definitely try Muhammarah.
Located right on the Esplanada d’Espanya, you couldn’t ask for a better location! When it’s sunny, this is the perfect place to soak up some sun and do a little bit of people-watching. Lemongrass is a Thai restaurant where you create your own dish. You choose a base (all of which can be made vegan by leaving out the egg), your main ingredient (go for tofu or any of the fruit and vegetables here) and a sauce. If you choose the Pad Thai as I did, you don’t need to choose a sauce as it already comes with a special one.
Pad Thai without eggs and with tofu.
Amorino has two stores in Alicante, one located right on Rambla de Méndez Nuñe. They serve vegan sorbet drinks as well as vegan ice cream/sorbet. Good to know: if you want to get some ice cream (doesn’t matter if for sit in or take away), you have to pay at the cashier and then take your receipt to the ice cream counter where you can order.
I loved the bio chocolate sorbet – so rich and chocolaty!
Levante Bar is located in Alicante’s harbor and the perfect place to watch the sunset. They have a big menu of smoothies that are made without milk. So why not order a healthy drink, watch the sunset and enjoy your life as a vegan in Alicante!?
I wanted to try “Delightful” but they didn’t have any acai, so I went for “Pineapple Sunset” which was very very delicious!
Tandoori House is located just off the Esplanada d’Espanya. As Indian food is always great for vegans, I decided to check it out. The restaurant is very bright but still cozy and the service is great.
I love Chana Masala and I wasn’t disappointed by the one I got here.
Mahalo Poke is located right around the corner from Calle San Francisco. You can order one of their options or create your own poke bowl. In addition to the tasty bowl, the interior is very stylish and instagrammable.
Create your own bowl and put in it whatever you like most.
More vegan restaurants in Alicante
There are a lot of places I didn’t get to check out, for instance, Purpura Project (staff members don’t speak English very well and since they don’t have a set menu, it can be difficult to communicate), Falafelmania and Lluvia. I’ve heard good things, so make sure to check them out if you have more time than I had.
I hope this vegan food guide was helpful. Let me know if I’ve missed your favorite vegan place in Alicante! Also, feel free to reach out to me with any questions and tag me if you visit any of these places.
