No fear: there IS vegetarian food in Santiago

Time of past OR future Camino
Yearly and Various 2014-2019
Via Monastica 2022
It's been 5 years since being in Santiago and my perceptions are stuck in a decade ago. But these days it's so much easier to find good vegetarian and vegan food here.

Yesterday I had a wonderful lunch at Restaurante A Porta Verde. Today I headed to the very highly recommended Green House, but be aware it's only open in the evening.

Downhearted, I wandered down Rua do Vilar And found Udon, where I'm happily scarfing a perfectly good plate of yakisoba.

Not to worry - if you don't eat meat, there are now plenty of options, and you can find them with almost no effort.

Does anyone else have a favorite recent recommendation?

Down bag (90/10 duvet) of 700 fills with 180 g (6.34 ounces) of filling. Mummy-shaped structure, ideal when you are looking for lightness with great heating performance.

€149,-
Glad to hear it! If you make it to Green House please say hello to Shanta for Wendy and I, and tell her that we hope to see her in July!

Two other vegetarian restaurants I enjoyed last October were Entre Pedras and A Corre Vexeta. Check days and hours they are open.

We ate here last winter. They have a vegetarian/vegan section of menu and also gluten free options. It was a nice evening for us as a group. The server was careful to note allergies as well (had one person with a walnut allergy.)
 
I end up at OK Wok on Rúa do Franco at least once every time I'm in Santiago. It's really easy to make a vegetarian or vegan friendly noodle order there, and they're attentive to potential issues with sauces and eggs.
 
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.
Like Green House, these are only open in the evening, 7:30 or 8:00 PM.
So for lunch, options are scarcer.
That said they all look fantastic.

I ate at Porta Vedra on
Rúa do Hospitaliño, 18
several times in 2022. Great food.

Hi everyone, Just a note that the Pilgrim House Welcome Center in Santiago will be closed this Saturday, May 25, through next Sunday, June 2, for a staff conference. We're sorry for any...
