To be trustworthy, Albania just isn’t very vegan-friendly but. Discovering vegan meals in Tirana was a problem however not extraordinarily troublesome although. I made a decision to make it simpler for you and advocate you some locations the place to get prime Tirana vegan meals.
Sadly, in different elements of Albania vegan food regimen remains to be not very talked-about.
The most effective Tirana vegan meals
What do you have to style whereas in Tirana? Which meals and the place to get them? Get impressed by my checklist:
1. contemporary fruit
Albania is a superb nation to get contemporary prime quality fruit. Consider it or not, fruit is the most effective meals for us people.
I’ll all the time advise you to style native and seasonal fruit above the rest. It relies on through which month you go to Tirana. The great factor is that contemporary seasonal and native fruit is reasonable in Albania.
Once I was there at first of November, Tirana was filled with persimmons, pomegranates and mandarines. They had been all scrumptious! Simply stroll round city and discover a small market or a store, purchase some ripe fruit after which you may sit in a park or by the lake and luxuriate in it there. The most effective!
So far as I do know, Gjelber was a vegan restaurant however it’s not any extra. As I used to be instructed, they may not survive being 100% vegan. Such a disgrace! Now they nonetheless provide some vegan meals however it’s higher to ask the waiter which of them are vegan.
The Avo 1 buddha bowl I used to be beneficial was actually price it. Not dry in any respect. The sauce and avocado made the salad very attention-grabbing. Finger-licking! I often don’t like ordering salads at eating places as they don’t often know the right way to make a great salad however this one was actually a terrific alternative.

3. Inexperienced & protein
They’ve many various vegan meals, salads, bowls, smoothies, burgers and so on. I went there on my first night in Tirana and because it was simply half-hour until they’d shut, I requested the waiter for recommendation which vegan meal to get. She mentioned I might strive wabi-sabi bowl so I trusted her suggestion.
Wabi-sabi has nothing to do with wasabi. It truly means one thing like ”accepting the imperfection”.
To be trustworthy, I used to be very completely happy it was not wasabi however wabi-sabi as I’m not a fan of spicy wasabi horseradish.
The salad was very contemporary and scrumptious. A pleasant shock 🙂
And their wifi is nice, too!

4. Glad Stomach
Glad Stomach is a tiny juice bar proper within the metropolis heart of Tirana. They do have 3 tables there however you can even order for take away. They specialize on juices, smoothies and vegan muffins. The women working there have been good to me.
I attempted a purple smoothie, a carrot cake, and a cacao cake with persimmons which had been in season on the time. All of them had been scrumptious and vegan, after all.
”Eat good” is their motto 🙂
The one draw back is not any bathroom for patrons there. And including hemp seeds to a fruit smoothie just isn’t the most effective mixture for digestion, in my view.
Their handle: Ibrahim Rugova Ne Hyrje Te Bllokut, Perballe Sky Tower, Tirana
Ciocolattitaliano is a exceptional ice cream, chocolate and pastry store and it appears to be all the time crowded. Once I noticed it, I needed to stroll in to ask for one thing vegan to attempt to see why there’s so many individuals.
Because it was nonetheless somewhat sizzling on that day, I ordered vegan ice cream and it was delish. Actually good for non-vegan pleasant Albania! I used to be instructed that their darkish chocolate and fruit ice cream flavors are vegan however verify it with the worker earlier than ordering.
