The Vegan Food
Vegans will be well looked after at Hotel Infante Sagres with clearly labelled dishes in the hotel’s ‘Book Restaurant’ (situated in an adjacent former bookshop) and the room service menu; you can also find a well respected vegetarian and vegan restaurant in very close proximity. But it was the fully vegan breakfast that we enjoyed that makes us give this hotel our vegan seal of approval.
Tasty vegan breakfast
The upscale surroundings of the dining room certainly match the quality of the food. Breakfast in style surrounded by chandeliers and antiques, soak up the mellow, sophisticated atmosphere and begin your day with ease.
The vegan food was a real surprise with creamy vegan yoghurt and berry filled smoothies, healthy fresh juices, delicious seasonal fruit, freshly brewed coffee and a bread basket of different breads to start. A selection of homemade jams including pineapple, red fruits, strawberry and pumpkin added a sweet and fruity element.
Then followed a real delight; a sesame crusted seitan loaf and a vegan pancake (accompanied by beans, fried mushrooms and a continental style veggie salad slaw). It was such a wonderful surprise that the chef had gone out of is was to cook something specifically vegan that used more unusual ingredients. It was also really tasty and a very satisfying start to the day; the perfect preparation for exploring Porto.
