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.

2) Os Tibetanos

This decades-old secret spot is more than a restaurant as it is part of a cultural ensemble that includes a small Buddhist temple. The venue also offers yoga and meditation classes.
