Vegan Guide Lisbon – Part 1: Eat

More restaurants…

The vegan brunch at 39 Degraus Restaurante Bar Cinemateca (number 21 on the Vegan Map) is more than convincing. In several courses and in combination with buffet we got all sorts of savory and sweet treats. Among other things, there was even vegan cheese! If you go to the brunch, you should bring a lot of hunger. As the name suggests, the restaurant is located above Cinemateca Portuguesa, the state film museum and film institute of the Portuguese film.

The Hamburgueria do Bairro (number 24 on the Vegan Map) has several branches in Lisbon. We went to the one in the Parque das Nações. There were five vegetarian burgers, all of which can be ordered vegan. Otherwise, they may contain non-vegan sauces. This also applies to the dip of the sweet potato fries: We could easily change vegetarian mayonnaise to vegan mayo. Also the garlic bread is vegan.

Lisbon Vegan Restaurante (number 25 on the Vegan Map), as the name implies, is a purely vegan restaurant in Lisbon, which is very similar in concept to Jardim das Cerejas. Here, too, there is an extensive and delicious Indian all-you-can-eat buffet, also with four to five changing hot dishes, as well as rice, couscous, soups, pastries and various salads. The restaurant is located a bit further outside and the atmosphere could be improved, however, the buffet costs here only 6.90 euro at noon and 7.90 euro in the evening. Drinks and dessert (highly recommended!) again cost only a small extra charge.

Ao 26 – Vegan Food Project (number 26 on the Vegan Map) is also a wholly vegan restaurant, which offers a daily changing menu as well as salads, burgers, fries and sandwiches. In addition there are typical Portuguese snacks. Among the desserts there are also raw, gluten- and sugar-free options. The restaurant is located in the old town and can be reached by the famous tram line 28E.

  3. Mouth-watering pictures! I traveled Portugal in the summer and found it difficult to find vegan food at traditional restaurants, but was impressed by the offering at vegan restaurants. We really loved Tao as it was so cheap and tasty! We’re adapting some Portuguese recipes to make them vegan friendly for you to try at home. Check us out if you’re interested!
