Although it doesn’t have specific restaurants specialising in vegetarian food, Jerez de la Frontera is not lacking in places for non-carnivores to eat. This beautiful city is home to veggie-friendly eateries offering everything from tapas to tacos. Read on for the best places to head for vegetarian food in Jerez.
If you’re looking for a veggie breakfast or snack while attending Jerez’s annual Horse Fair, Coso is your spot. Located out of the city centre near the beautiful González Hontoria park, this trendy café offers fresh fruit juices plus vegetarian sandwiches and salads made from organic produce. And if you like any of the furniture, you can buy it: almost everything here – from the food to the sofas – is for sale.
Albalá is situated near the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art and is consistently named as one of the most innovative restaurants in Jerez. The creative menu features meat and fishes dishes, but vegetarian options made from the finest local produce are also available. Don’t leave without trying the seasonal asparagus, served with soya alioli (a garlicky mayonnaise). The wine list is also superb.
If you fancy a change from tapas, head to Da Enrico in the heart of old Jerez: with a Turin-born chef installed in the kitchen, this is likely to be the best Italian food you’ll sample while here. There are plenty of options for veggies, including classics such as the margarita pizza, as well as a good selection flavour-packed pasta dishes. Customers also love the big portions, low prices and friendly service.
Vegetarian fans of Mexican food will want to check out Mamalupe, a cute little spot near the González Hontoria park. As well as a mean margarita cocktail, this popular restaurant offers meat-free tacos, burritos and enchiladas (carnivore-friendly versions also available), which can be enjoyed on a romantic terrace out front or in a cosy interior. Booking in advance highly recommended.
With a menu featuring dishes from a huge variety of countries (India, Italy, the U.S. and Brazil to name just four), Rigodón is another great place for veggies wearying of tapas. Situated in the heart of the historic centre, its vegetarian options include pasta dishes and salads, as well as a mean macaroni and cheese. The homemade desserts, especially the apple tart, are also highly praised.
The decently-priced chain Pad Thai Wok is always a safe bet for veggies, offering as it does a good selection of meat-free noodle dishes to take away (para llevar) or para tomar (literally ‘to take’, meaning to stay in the restaurant). The Jerez branch enjoys a premium location on one of the historic centre’s busiest thoroughfares, making it a great stop-off if you’re touring the city’s key attractions.
