Botanical Den – Vegan bar food in Lisbon

Botanical Den is the best choice if you find yourself looking for vegan food late at night in Bairro Alto. The small, intimate space has a small menu of vegan bar food. They serve a Beyond Meat burger and a Beyond Meat hot dog as well as bruschettas, guacamole, and hummus..

They have excellent cocktails (non-alcoholic as well) and play 90s music. The bar is so small that you are likely to strike up a conversation with the other patrons.

Food Temple

Beco do Jasmim, 18, in the Mouraria neighborhood

Dinner only 6:30 pm – 11:30

This bohemian restaurant is tucked away in the old Mouraria neighborhood. They have a pleasant dining room, but you might as well sit outside on the steps in front of the restaurant for a more romantic experience under the stars.

You might find marinated artichoke hearts with vegan sausage and mashed potatoes (12€), or couscous risotto with fried okra, or vegan pho.

The menu changes every night. On other nights you might find tofu teriyaki, pumpkin soup with tempeh salad, or a polenta ragu.

Food Temple’s vegan cheese plate is great.
