Vegan Lisbon

In the beggining of November I flew to my country of birth, where I was joined by a couple of friends from Amsterdam. We had a vegan blogger amongst us but, as you might imagine, Portugal is far from being a nation of herbivorous. We turned out to be a good team, my friends and me. We stuck together at meal times. Little did we know that Lisbon’s veggie scene is banging. Somehow, it makes sense, I later reasoned. Given the gastronomic standards in Portugal, for you to convince a non-vegetarian Portuguese person to eat a meal free of their trusted animal products, the food has to be nothing short of AMAZING.

During our Lisbon days, we’ve been highly committed to eating, as people usually are when at Southern latitudes. We have basically engulfed stupid amounts of edibles followed by digestion-walks intended to make space for more edibles. We’ve relished on this trip, people. We’ve relished. Reason strong enough to share with you the sources of that happiness. Here are three veggie restaurants in Lisbon that will spice up your appetite.

Agenda

When What Where – November

WWW is a cultural agenda focused on art, music, lesser-known cultural venues, sustainability & self-development. With a soft spot for world-music and multicultural events. 

This time we’re doing just a couple of events for November as I’ve been on holiday and intentionally did not take my laptop with me (!) Ain’t I a rebel? We’re aaalmost halfway November but I thought it’d still be worthy to bring you a couple of events that I’m enthusiastic about. Amsterdam can be annoying because its overcrowdedness means a lot of interesting events sell out in two shakes of a lamb’s tail. If you’re not a tiger in being in-the-know or super well-connected, you’re doomed to ticket swapping eternally among desperate online consumers who don’t seem to mind overpricing nor have boundaries of time spent on the internet which, for me at least, generates massive irritation and kills the enjoyment of said event in general, and life in particular. Long story short, not including sold out events here. You’re welcome. Feel free to let me (us) know if I forgot any essential for November in the comment section!

Art City NDSM

Where do I feel in my element the most? Immediate answer: among art. That’s probably why the NDSM is (still) one of my happy places in Amsterdam. The Open Ateliers at the complex of the Art City are the best excuse to go check out the ‘hood and see it in all its creative glory. I love photographing art so today I’m sharing a number of the pieces that have caught my attention (there were so many more to be seen, though).

An instameet at BAUT

I regularly post about Instameets on Amsterdive’s Instagram account (mostly in stories), but I started to wonder if people even knew what that was. As the name suggests, an instameet is an occasion when people who have an Instagram account get together. I mean, if you’re an intense user of the platform, you have probably heard about these gatherings in the city / country where you live. Every place has their own insta community. But what exactly happens at such an insta meet?

When What Where – October

WWW is a cultural agenda focused on art, music, lesser-known cultural venues, sustainability & self-development. With a soft spot for world-music and multicultural events. 

I love October, and I’m sure the reason for this is that it is MY month. Yes, that’s right, I’m an early Autumn child so I get all excited with what, for me, is *the beginning of everything*. Since I remember, October is a month of interesting events, social gatherings, people all around and, what’s more important, cake. Looking forward to seeing what weird and magical experiences this year is about to bring. As for Amsterdam: this is what you can expect, culturewise.
