Raizes Cozinha Saudavel & Vegetariana
Guys, I warn you that this is a MUST VISIT place if you are in Faro (located in Quarteira, a bit outside Faro). The place is super nice, the outside part is giving you that tropical vibes, and the inside is looking cozy. I vote this place to be one of and it deserves to be one of the best vegan restaurants in Algarve.
Must try plate: The vegan cheese platter
For cheese lovers, you can’t miss this plate! And even if you don’t like cheese, this plate will change your mind. You will get at least six different kinds of vegan cheese, from the spreadable one to the aged kind of cheese. The plate is accompanied by different local bread, a wonderful olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and some tasty olives.
PS: The portion is huge so it can be shared with others, a perfect dish to start your lunch or dinner.
If you are looking to taste the typical Portuguese cuisine in a vegan version then this is the place to be. This restaurant is located near the city center and the city port and I will say this is one of the best vegan restaurants in Algarve.
Must try plate: Francesinha
I really voted 5 stars for their Francesinha! It’s so similar to the original recipe, the taste, the look, the sauce, and the sunny “egg” on top is just WOW! So delicious and tasty. The only difference is that this plate is a cruelty-free one 😊 because this francesinha is made with tofu and seitan instead of meat or fish.
PS: Apart from being so delicious, this plate will also fill you up (or at least for me, the portion is a big one).
