The 6 Best Places for Vegan Food in Lisbon

Portugal has been on everyone’s mind lately and we recently wrote about our experience living as digital nomads in Lisbon for two months. During those two months, our main focus was to hunt down the best vegan food in Lisbon. We ended up eating at as many restaurants as we possible could and even found one of the best vegan cakes we’ve ever eaten.

What we came to realize is that even though the Portuguese are known for their meaty cuisine and custard tarts, Lisbon boasts plenty of options for the vegan traveler. We tried many restaurants, but these were the spots that really blew us away.

Get Your Grub On at These 8 Amazing Vegan Restaurants in NYC

With close to 600 vegan restaurants to choose from in New York City, you are truly spoiled for choice. It would be nearly impossible for anyone to try all the vegan restaurants in NYC. And even if somebody did manage to eat at all of them, there would be hundreds of new ones to try by the time they were finished.

Nevertheless, we would gladly accept the challenge. In fact, since Victoria’s lived less than an hours train ride away from Manhattan all her life and Adam is obsessed with the Big Apple, we’ve already eaten at our fair share of vegan restaurants in NYC.

Vegan Cooking Class in Ubud – An Organic Farm to Plate Experience

It was quite obvious that we had to do a vegan cooking class in Ubud, Bali since we love the Balinese cuisine (hello tempeh!) and because Ubud is one of the most vegan friendly places we’ve ever visited. 

After searching through the many cooking schools in Ubud we found one that checked all of our boxes. It was very hands-on, check. It offered the possibility to make vegan dishes, check. And most importantly we would learn how to make our beloved peanut sauce, double check!

Roasted Vegan Stuffed Peppers with Rice and Cheese

A few days ago Victoria asked me to try and make some vegan stuffed peppers for us. I wasn’t too excited about it because I haven’t loved them in the past. But I created a recipe for these roasted vegan stuffed peppers with rice and vegan cheese and actually ended up being blown away with the result. This time the peppers were full of flavor and we liked them so much we ended up eating them two nights in a row.

Ethiopian Food – A Mind-Blowing Eating Experience

You know when you find out about one of the most flavorful and vegan-friendly cuisines in the world and you can’t possibly understand how you didn’t know about it sooner? That’s exactly how we felt after our first life-changing mouthful of Ethiopian food.

Our newest food obsession began at the Ethiopian restaurant, Teff, in Stamford, CT – which might be one of the most unlikely places to first try Ethiopian food but we digress. The cuisine was at the time completely new to both of us but we could clearly see a resemblance between it and one of our favorites – South Indian Food.

Let’s just say our first meal at Teff was all the introduction we needed to become hooked on this mind-blowing cuisine. As avid lovers of spices, the food seriously hit all the right spots and we could not get enough.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls have taken the world by storm and are by far the hottest food trend out there. They come in all kinds of flavors and can be found pretty much anywhere in the world. We had our first experience with this creamy delight a little more than a year ago in Koh Lanta, Thailand. We fell in love after the first spoon full and has ever since kept seeking out smoothie bowls everywhere we go. Bali has so far proven to be the place offering the biggest variety of these delicious bowls and this is also where we got the idea to start making our own. We’ve made all kinds of smoothie bowls with berries, tropical fruit, different kinds of plant based milks, and, of course, chocolate. Our favorite so far has been this amazing and protein packed smoothie bowl with chocolate and peanut butter!
