It’s official- veganism has taken the world by storm. From celebrities to your cousin, there’s a good chance you know a vegan. So you probably already know all the benefits of being vegan: environmental, animal, health. The disadvantages of being vegan: sometimes having a hard time finding a place to eat! Well, if you find you’re in the great city of Lisbon, then you have found yourself in vegan paradise. From heart veggie burgers to delicate crêpes, Lisbon has more vegan options than one could ever dream of. With new places popping up left and right, vegans everywhere are calling Lisbon a plant-based paradise.
Ao 26 Vegan Food Project is a long-standing favorite among members of the vegan Lisbon community, and with good reason. Located in the very heart of Lisbon’s Bairro Alto neighborhood, it’s in close proximity to the city’s top tourist attractions. Ao 26 Vegan Food Project has, of course, the essentials you would find on any restaurant menu, including burgers and toast. The thing that sets them apart is it’s obvious how much love and care is put into every dish as soon as it reaches your table. And, of course, how could we not talk about dessert? Vegan cheesecake, chocolate cake, brownies, and more- the list is endless.
Anther relatively new eatery is run by the same owners as Ao 26 Vegan Food Project and has consistently been rated as one of the top vegan restaurants in Lisbon for several years now. The food at O Botanista is high quality; people are literally raving about this place. Be sure to save room for dessert! The cakes in the display case will have you contemplating ordering sweets first and the meal second! Recently, the best artisanal vegan cheese in Lisbon is now being sold at O Botanista! So what are you waiting for?
