Hindu Temple's Cantina Lisbon – Hot & vegetarian

The cantina at Lisbon's "Radha Krishna Hindu Temple" has some of the best hot, healthy, delicious Indian food around. I recommend you get some laddu to-go!

Just outside the city center, at Telheiras quarter, you'll find the Radha Krishna Temple. This temple is the house of the Hindu Community in Portugal. You can visit it (check the contacts and book in advance) and you can join for the praying. There's a statue of the great Mahatma Gandhi at the gardens in case you're lost.

The Temple also has several activities to offer: workshops (Indian cuisine), music and dancing, and from time to time there's Indian movies and other festivities. But if you're craving Indian vegetarian, hot and spicy, delicious and healthy, amazing vibrant food... there's only one place: The Cantina.

The Cantina serves a buffet with traditional food. It's genuine and very tasty and friends who've visited India tell me this it's the only place that gets close to what real Indian food looks like.

The colours and smells invite you to discover and taste this yummy food, the salty lassi with cumin is really good and contrasts with the hot pepper sauce and the achaar (pickles). The paparis are crunchy and tasty as always.

I've already taken my brothers to the Cantina (big fans of hot & spicy here!) and they both really enjoyed their meal there. The staff is very attentive, so if you're lost or not sure if you would like any of the ingredients, don't be afraid to ask someone; they will gladly explain!

Don't forget to buy some cakes (I recommend you my favourite: laddu) to take home!
