Said to be Granada’s best vegetarian restaurant, Raices is a little way out of the historic town center (in the direction of the Zaidin neighborhood), but it’s a lovely walk and the menu justifies a slightly longer trek. The cooking of super-friendly chef David infuses food at risk of being bland with flavor and personality. His delicious seitan with garlic and mushrooms, for example, is a dish that will satisfy even the most committed of carnivores for texture and taste. As is fitting for its location in one of the great Moorish cities of southern Spain, Raices offers a range of traditional Spanish and Arabic dishes – from croquetas to cous cous – at good prices and is a fun, informal place to hang out.
