El Veganito del Charco Calle Jacinto Borges Díaz Arrecife Lanzarote 27th December 2017

El Veganito is a 100% vegan cafe in Arrecife, owned by a lovely friendly lady called Gloria.  The inside is bright and inviting and although small from the front, there is additional seating upstairs on a mezzanine.

El Veganito del Charco sells a good selection of vegan products, including rice, pasta, seeds, beans, crisps, tofu and seitan, which must be fantastic for vegans staying in Arrecife.

You can order a plate comprising of three dishes of the day, so I explained to Gloria about my allergies and she suggested brown rice, chickpea tuna and spinach noodles with stir fry vegetables and sesame seeds.   Steven chose exactly the same, but with a black bean bake instead of the rice.

The food was delicious and very much home cooked, light yet packed with flavour and I especially loved the chickpea tuna which went great with the tortilla chips.   Gloria is a great host and we had a chat about the increase in vegans in the area, which was apparent by the number of people who came in, whilst we were there.

I was very impressed with El Veganito, which will definitely be my place of choice, when next in Arrecife.
