For all those who already are fed up with sweet things by reading and looking at the photos, who prefer the savory things or love the combination of both, for those we of course have also vegan(-friendly) restaurants in Lisbon on hand!
The all vegan Sabor Superior (number 10 on the Vegan Map) is located west of Lisbon near the Torre de Belém. It was the first restaurant we went to. And it did not disappoint us: we had two very tasty main courses, freshly squeezed juices and cakes for dessert. The menu changes daily.
Even as non Krishna adherents you can eat very well in the garden of Hare Krishna Lisboa (number 13 on the Vegan Map). There is a daily changing menu at a fixed price, consisting of soup, main course, dessert and tea. It’s usually completely vegan – so asking in advance is worth it. Because then you get fresh Indian food at a very low price.
The entirely vegan Jardim das Cerejas (number 15 on the Vegan Map) offers a very extensive and delicious all-you-can-eat-buffet for the price of 7.50 euros (for lunch) or 9.50 euros (for dinner). Drinks and dessert (highly recommended!) are not included, but are well priced as well. The Indian-inspired dishes consist of four to five changing hot dishes, as well as rice, couscous, soups, pastries and various salads. Oh, did we already mention that it’s located centrally in the old town?
We continue with Focaccia in Giro (number 17 on the Vegan Map), who are, right, specialized in the Ligurian yeast dough flatbread from Italy. From a food truck a small shop has developed here. Vegan options are “Mela Verde” (black olive pâté, tomato, zucchini & apple) and “Melanzana” (eggplant, hummus & spinach), sometimes there are more. In addition, they have non-dairy milk for coffee and homemade lemonades.
TOO Naturally Healthy Food (number 20 on the Vegan Map) is a take-away only store, so here’s everything to go. You can chose from a wide selection of savory and sweet dishes, all of which are vegan. From snacks to beverages and salads to complete meals, everything is there. These can be consumed nicely in the nearby Jardim do Príncipe Real. The packaging is, of course, environmentally friendly recyclable and compostable.
