Restaurant Flax & Kale was opened a couple of years ago by the owner of the first Barcelona vegetarian restaurant. Her first project Teresa Carles ,which exists from 1979 ,is still greatly popular among all fans of healthy food. While Teresa Carles is a strictly vegetarian place, Flax & Kale has a much more varied menu that includes dishes with fish. Here rules flexitarionism which means that 80 % of the menu is plant based, while the remaining 20 % - animal protein. Flax & Kale mainly uses blue fish that has the biggest percentage of our favorite Omega 3.
