Vegetarian, Vegan & Raw options in Lisbon

When in Lisbon we still feel the culture of eating a lot of meat and specially fish, for instances, in June, the hole month is dedicate to sardines.

In the past it was hard to go out to eat, not all the restaurants were vegetarian/vegan friendly… once I asked for the vegetarian option and I got a greasy omelet with mushrooms and some lettuce (did you already had a similar experience?), but nowadays I find it very easy to eat vegan and vegetarian dishes, even in places that were not specifically vegetarian or vegan.

If you are thinking about visiting Lisbon, here’s a list of places you can go to:

1) Psi, Pena

Terra (meaning Earth in Portuguese) is a, mostly vegan, vegetarian restaurant. It has Traditional Portuguese Gastronomy, with a vegetarian twist and lots of creativity. “You don’t have to miss on the Portuguese food just because you’re vegan”. A Charming 18th-century building with a Private Garden is waiting your visit in one of the oldest areas of Lisbon.
