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.
