Salads are the ideal lunch meals for the summer and if you want to be healthy. But it is quite annoying having to go out and buy all those ingredients to make the perfect and original salad, especially if you’re on your own.. Plus, how ridiculous do you look when you buy just one lonely tomato, only use half the pack of salad, half a cucumber…
No worries because Barcelona now has its first salad bar!
Located on Travesera de Gracia just above diagonal, NATURO is a cute little shop. You can take out, eat-in or even have them deliver to your office or house for you extremely lazy people.
STEP ONE: ORDERING
They offer three salad sizes and menus ranging from 3€50 to 5€ depending on if you want a salad and/or a sandwich and/or a drink. You can enjoy a simple salad with onions and lettuce or go a little crazy and add their tomato salsa, fried onions, broccoli and spicy peppers.
If you don’t want a salad you can also enjoy a homemade bikini (Panini), their two cremas del dia (soup of the day) and during the summer their gazpascho!
– The waiter is really sweet: take your time in deciding what you want! He’ll even advise you on what to add to best accompany your toppings.
– Enjoy their free chocolates! Nom nom…
STEP TWO: DRESSING
You’re not quite finished yet. Once you’ve made your personal salad/bikini, head over to the salsa bar where you can create your own dressing. You have a wide variety of sauces: balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, different olive oils, Tabasco, salt, pepper, honey, mustard etc..
STEP THREE: ENJOY!
Now just sit down and enjoy this tiny shop’s homey atmosphere. With my friend, we ate our salads on a big wooden table where Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Hello! magazines were spread out. (Thaaaank you NATURO) We felt right at home it was lovely!
I LOVE this place. I feel right at home, the waiter is really sweet and friendly and what better way to enjoy a salad than with a friend, chocolates and magazines!
