Vegan Friendly restaurant in Lisbon : The first episode is about Coelho da Rocha

Coelho da Rocha is a Portuguese restaurant located in Campo D’orique. It typically serves meat and other Portuguese speciality. Vegan Junkies’ team went there to find out the tastiest vegan dish.

how to get there ?

Choeliho da Rocha  is a Portuguese, Mediterranean restaurant. It is located in the first street of the neighbourhood of Canpo d’orique. The restaurant is exactly located in a street with the same name R. Coelho da Rocha 104, 1350-075 Lisboa. You can reach it from the city center with the iconic tram 28. We took it from chiado and enjoyed the most touristic and iconic tram ride in lisbon. Just pay attention to all pickpocket you may find on the tram.

About the restaurant: 

It Opens Monday to Saturday from 12:00 h to 03:00 h for lunch time and dinner is from 19.00h to 23,00h . Quite fancy location for a Portuguese restaurant, and the prices for the main dishes are not so accessible either. Indeed we decided to try the appetiser.

Not far from the restaurant you can take a stroll in the beautiful Jardim de Estrela, enjoy the little pond and get amazed by the incredible plants. Just in front there is Basilica de Estrela one of the most beautiful churches in lisbon.

The Food: 

You can find all type of food from churrasco, fish to our vegan friendly starter: Peixinos Da Horta and Pimentos padrão . Peixinos Da horta are green beans coated with batter and then fried. It is one of the most traditional Portuguese petiscos. Along with Pimentos padrão which are small green pepper sautéed on a really hot pan with olive oil and salt. You can find the full recipe here. Both of them were really tasty and quite cheap so it got our approve.
