The 5 best places for a healthy meal in Lisbon

1) The Food Temple

Chef Alice Ming opened a vegan restaurant on a secluded, intimate and stunning dead end square in the decadent Mouraria district. The menu changes daily depending on what’s on offer at the market but it is invariably full of heart and creative. Be sure to book a table and ask to be seated on the square steps for an even richer experience.

This Tibetan-inspired restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and is a favourite among health-minded locals. It’s one of the oldest veggie restaurants in the city and it is part of a cultural institution that includes a Buddhist school. The backyard terrace is a great option during warmer months.
