After a few years of working out of the rent-a-kitchen of Espai Egg, Lucy chef/owner, has her own shop. Called Wild Lulita, the wild referring to Lucy’s childhood in the countryside. Lulita, a play on her name. It is an unabashedly pastel pink shop that is all about “Cake, Pleasure, and Health.”
Wild Lulita is a vegan dessert shop in Gràcia which sells organic fruit and veg as well as things that will contribute to your health and pleasure.
The main draw of the place is a selection of vegan desserts displayed in a chilled cabinet at the far end of the shop. Colorful and decorated with berries and petals. Or raw chocolate concoctions like a rocky road riddled with goji berries. And heaven help us, a chocolate peanut butter bar, as thick and wide as a whiteboard eraser.
The shop has a “Fruteria” license, so more than half the space is given over to a display of organic fruits and vegetables sourced from Hortec. A handy section to have when desserts often use fruit and vegetables as a base.
Chef / Owner Lucy was previously head chef at Deliciously Ella and Detox Kitchen in London.
Previously, Lucy was head chef for both Deliciously Ella and the Detox Kitchen in London. She is proficient and confident in what is a growing but undersupplied niche in Barcelona: healthful, vegan and bright. Already connected with an ideally suited clientele through collaborations with the likes of Wellness Gypsy, Chicas Fitness, Herrick House, Yomu, and Betsy Reed Yoga. With Wild Lulita, Lucy can connect with a wider customer base. As far as locations go, Gràcia is an ideal choice, with plenty of yogis around and parents shopping for pesticide-free produce and low sugar treats.
Besides the edible profile of Wild Lulita, there is another. One of female empowerment, sensuality, and sexuality. Yes. If you are looking for a crystal pleasure toy you might well find it in this shop. Far from a frivolous add on, Lucy believes that health and wellness are not just eating good food but that having “healthy pleasure is vital for all women” I couldn’t agree with Lucy more. Who knows? You might come in for a slice of vegan tart and walk out with a crystal pleasure toy?
