3+ Amazing Vegan Sushi Restaurants in Barcelona

Barcelona is absolutely amazing for vegan food! There are so many vegan restaurants in Barcelona of various cuisines. Japanese food was the cuisine I enjoyed the most (besides the local food, of course 😉 ).

So if you love vegan sushi Barcelona should be on your cities-to-visit list. We tried four different all-vegan sushi restaurants in Barcelona and they were absolutely amazing.

Best vegan sushi restaurants in Barcelona

1. Roots and Rolls

Sushi Tasting Plate

Roots and Rolls seems to be the most recommended vegan sushi Barcelona has to offer. It’s also one of the most recommended vegan restaurants in Barcelona.

There are just a few small tables outside, but the inside is quite big. On the way to the back of the restaurant, you walk past some modern paintings, next to them are some more secluded tables (some of them heart-shaped).

The back is a big spacious room with different-sized tables. The decor is minimalist chic in earthy tones. It’s perfect to go to when you’re with a group of people since they have the space and they also have other options besides sushi in case one of your group doesn’t fancy it.

We dined there twice and this is what we had:

Sushi Tasting: Obviously we had to try the sushi at Roots and Rolls, as that’s what they’re known for, after all. We couldn’t decide which one to get, so we went with the Sushi Tasting plate for two. It consists of 24 sushi pieces, which include 5 different kinds.

The mixed Sushi Tasting plate is very pleasing to the eyes and adds new flavours to sushi, like jackfruit or peanuts. I really liked that we had different versions to try, I couldn’t have decided on just one flavour. 

Price: €39

Edamame in a bowl
The sauce on the edamame was so delicious

Edamame: Usually edamame just comes with salt, at least in my experience. These come with “sweet dashi soy sauce”, which has a rich umami flavour with a hint of sweetness. The edamame itself tasted very fresh and I loved the sauce on them. So much better with sauce than just with salt.

Price: €4.90

Roasted cauliflower wings in a bowl
Cauliflower popcorn

Cauliflower popcorn: This battered cauliflower is actually the size of popcorn! It comes with the orange sriracha sauce (which is still too spicy for me) and alioli (which just tasted like vegan mayo). Just like real popcorn, the cauliflower popcorn was quite salty and even a little bit crunchy. It was a bit too salty and dry for my taste since I didn’t like the dipping sauces that much. I think I would have loved this dish with the sweet dashi soy sauce on top of the edamame.

Price: €5.90

Gyozas on a plate
I love gyozas

Gyozas: What to say about the gyozas? They were very good, but gyozas are always good. Aren’t they? Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever had bad gyozas.

Price €5.90

Cheesecake with raspberry sauce on top
Cheesecake

Cheesecake: The cheesecake was nice but, to be honest, it wasn’t the best vegan cheesecake I’ve had. It looked really pretty though.

Price: €6.50

2. Veganashi

Sushi mix at Veganashi, the best vegan and vegetarian sushi Barcelona has to offer

Veganashi already has two locations in Barcelona. We only went to the one in C/ de Lleida 33, which only opened in 2022, as it was near our apartment.

It’s a small, cosy place close to the Montjuïs Magic Fountains. And, by the way, if you’re in the area, you should definitely check out the light show at the fountain. The light show can’t be missed from an itinerary for a perfect vegan day in Barcelona.

And behind the Magic Fountains, there’s the Montjuïs, a hill with a castle on top and a viewpoint of the city of Barcelona.

But anyway, back to Veganashi! The interior looks a bit more playful with the colours and decoration. 

I love that they only use wholegrain rice, it’s healthier and black rice and red rice are pretty as well. Since we went there right after their opening, they didn’t have a physical English menu yet (they showed us a digital draft though).

So I’m gonna tell you the Spanish names of the dishes we had:

Súper Combo Degustación: A maki, sushi, nigiris mix with 32 pieces. I loved the different flavours! You get some classics, like avocado, but also their unique creations like dried tomato, cream cheese, or banana.

Before coming to Veganashi I never really thought of combining sushi or rice with sun-dried tomatoes. I only used them for Italian-inspired dishes, but the combination is really delicious. 
Price: €36

Veganashi
Bikinashi and Sushirito

Bikinashi: This is a sushi sandwich with red rice, which made it look very pretty. Towards the end of eating the sandwich though, it became quite difficult to eat since everything kinda fell apart. But the taste was very much on point.
Price: €11

Sushirito: Combination of sushi and burrito… what more do you want? I think the Sushirito and the Bikinashi tasted quite similar, the Sushirito tasted more like seaweed. They were both still very delicious.
Price: €10

Mini Platacao: Sweet sushi is such a great vegan dessert

Mini Platacao: First time eating sweet sushi for dessert… I like it. Rice with banana and chocolate is a great light dessert which is not too heavy.
Price: €6

Lemon mousse and chocolate bar in Barcelona

We had two other desserts as well, which were a recommendation from the waitress. I couldn’t find them on the menu though, so I don’t know their exact names. The Lemon Mousse was very lemony and the chocolate bar was very chocolatey ;).

Joking aside, they were both very good. Even more so considering they were sugar-free desserts, but I preferred the sweet sushi.

You should definitely try to add a visit to Veganashi to your 3-day itinerary in Barcelona.

3. Modoki Funky Roll

What we ate at Modoki

Even though Modoki Funky Roll has “roll” in its name, which kinda hints at sushi rolls, I think the highlight of the menu was their Japanese street food and desserts.

The sushi itself can’t compete with Roots and Rolls or Veganashi, but it has such a cool atmosphere with its Japanese-inspired decor. And they have the cutest chopsticks ever!

Cutest chop sticks ever!

Miso Soup: The miso soup was nice, but nothing special, to be honest.
Price: €3.90

Modoki Watermelon “Tuna” Sushi: Maybe if I hadn’t had Roots and Rolls or Veganshi’s sushi before, I would’ve enjoyed this sushi more. But like I said, I think it’s a different league entirely. It was just a bit ordinary compared to the other sushi I had in Barcelona.
Price: €6.50

Yakitori Karaage: I didn’t know you’d be able to find a potato salad on a Japanese street food menu. It was very good, especially in combination with the skewers. The skewers on their own were a bit too intense in flavour for me, but with the potato salad together it was delicious.
Price: €6.50

Inaris: The inari was very nice as a side dish. You could taste a nice hint of sweetness.
Price: €5.70

A mochi and a dessert sandwich
Desserts at Modoki

Mochi: Modoki’s is the only place of these three vegan sushi restaurants in Barcelona which has mochi. Mochi is a traditional Japanese, stuffed rice, gluten-free cake dessert.

They have different filling options, we went for matcha. If you’ve never tried mochi before, you definitely should! They’re just so fluffy, soft, and chewy at the same time. And I really liked the matcha filling.
Price: €4.00

Dorayaki: The pancakes come with different filling options too, we went for the chocolate-filled ones. They could have been a bit fluffier, in my opinion, but my boyfriend quite liked them. Maybe it’s just because I liked the mochi more and I don’t get a chance to have them that often.
Price: €4.50

4. Desoriente

Enjoying vegan cuisine in Barcelona, a delighted diner sits before a selection of sushi and drinks, showcasing the city's flair for plant-based gastronomy in a cozy, neon-lit setting.

Desoriente is an absolutely amazing vegan restaurant in Barcelona, which is often overlooked as it’s in Poblenou, a more residential area of Barcelona.

It took me about 4 visits to Barcelona to finally make it to Desoriente and now it might just be my favorite vegan sushi restaurant Barcelona has to offer.

The food is a Japanese, Indian, and Spanish fusion food. They serve tapas, sushi, and different main courses, which are inspired by the three countries.

We both loved the food and we loved that it was super easy to share all the dishes, they even split one portion of ramen into two bowls so we could share it. I love to share since it means I can try more things.

Experience Barcelona's twist on vegan sushi with a vibrant plate of rolled sushi adorned with fresh tomato, green accents, and a sprinkle of roe-like garnish, ready to be enjoyed with chopsticks.
We had the Rock & Roll sushi

Rock & Roll Sushi: The sushi was really delicious, it had a unique meaty filling. They recommend having the sushi without soy sauce so the flavor of the sushi itself is more pronounced.

All the sushi options sounded delicious and very unique. The only downside of the sushi at Desoriente is that they don’t have a sampling menu with different sushi types, you have to pick one.

Price: €15.50

Indulge in a vegan chocolate treat from a Barcelona eatery, featuring a decadent slice of cake with caramel, almond flakes, and a chocolate decoration, all set against a backdrop of a vibrant blue cup.
We had a delicious vegan snickers bar as dessert

Plant-Based Snickers: Our dessert wasn’t Japanese inspired but you can never go wrong with a vegan Snickers bar, super chocolaty and caramelly, so delicious.

Price: €6.50

Final thoughts: Vegan Sushi Barcelona

We enjoyed our meals in all three restaurants. As I said if you love vegan sushi Barcelona is the place to be. They all have different strong suits. 

I recommend Roots and Rolls when you want a bigger selection of food, but you can’t go wrong with their sushi either. It’s a great place if you’re going with more people as the restaurant is quite big.

I had some of the best vegan sushi in Barcelona at Veganashi. I think the value for money is extremely good with their big sushi plate. It’s also the only place that has sweet sushi if you’d like to try that.

Modoki should be your place to go if you want to try out some Japanese street food. For a small place, the restaurant itself was so cool and, well… funky! It had a nice little charm to it, and those chopsticks were just too cute! Don’t forget to try the mochi.

Desoriente is the perfect place if you don’t mind venturing a bit further away from Barcelona’s city center for some delicious vegan food. They have the best Japanese-Spanish fusion food and their sushi is amazing.
