The Food Temple is a small, hard-to-find vegetarian/vegan restaurant in the gorgeous medieval Mouraria neighborhood. It serves delicious, good-value tapas-style meals and the (creative) menu changes frequently. The plates are around €4 and there are also delicious desserts. More than the food here though, the atmosphere of the place is wonderful. You can sit at a table or on outdoor steps where people mill around and order food and eat alfresco.
