Take Away Seven Vegetarian (and Resilient) Restaurants in the North

Superior Taste (Braga)

The oldest vegetarian in Braga, at Praça Mouzinho de Albuquerque, the well-known Campo Novo does not close, which means that it serves takeaway or delivery vegetarian food from Monday to Monday from 12pm to 3pm and at 7pm at 9:30 pm O’clock for dinner. Fábio and Viviane offer three options on their social networks every day (6.50 euros plus 50 cents ecological packaging fee). In addition, the Gosto Superior restaurant is already taking orders for cakes, cupcakes, donuts and bare cakes for Valentine’s Day. Those who pass by here also have available tea bags that the couple made on the site of the Bhumi Permaculture Project.

In Carne Viva (Porto)

Francesinha, Without prickles à Lagareiro (grilled tofu with seaweed from the Atlantic, crispy bread with herbs, sautéed vegetables and fried potatoes), mushroom risotto, sect blossom with tomato rice and taco de alheira in port wine with three purees. The chef and owner Victor Rodrigues was forced to downsize the menu and to reduce the degree of elaboration of some dishes to a level of “vegetarian high cuisine”. Reduced to “sophistication” and now prepares “more consensual dishes” that are shared on social networks. The Em Carne Viva restaurant offers desserts if you order in the restaurant – but also delivers to the greater Porto area.

Manna (postage)

We visited the Manna room a year ago. A few sentences later, Sara and Hélder continue to resist. “We do everything we can,” says Hélder and works “every day” with deliveries to the wicket (to take away, which did not exist before the pandemic of your choice) and at home between 9:30 and 18:30. On the website of the room, as well as on social networks, it is possible to find a different dish per day, the list of food and drinks as well as all baked goods (a little more restricted so as not to generate waste) and groceries “notes one of the owners of the space in Porto – yoga classes have been suspended for a few months – who has just relaunched vegetarian and vegan pizzas with local, seasonal and organic ingredients,” a success of earlier restrictions. The catalog of books and magazines is also available.

CAAA Cantina (Guimarães)

Within the Center for Art and Architecture, the cantina has been a space with a huge communal table for some time, which has since changed its plans to adapt to the pandemic. Designers André Pinto and Ane Delazzeri are now working behind closed doors, but continue to serve vegetarian meals from Tuesday to Saturday for lunch (from 12 noon to 2.30 p.m.) – a different menu each day, often chosen by voting through Instagram stories. Reservations by phone or direct message on Insta.

The world tree (Porto)

Although the doors are closed, the A Árvore do Mundo restaurant keeps its kitchen “in full swing”. Orders can be picked up in the restaurant at any time of the day (Tuesday to Saturday). The menu is available from opening (12 noon) to closing (11 pm). The menu includes soup and main course and costs eight euros. “We prefer that you bring your packaging and bag with you as it has helped the environment and avoids the cost of an extra euro in packaging,” they warn on social networks.
