Anyone who is vegetarian or vegan knows how difficult it is to find places that sell food without animal origin and that are delicious. This gets even more complicated when I travel, because we never have much idea if there are good options for restaurants of this type in the destination.
Fortunately, St. Petersburg, Russia, has incredible locations for vegetarians and vegans. Paulo and I are going to go there soon and it is great to know that we have good alternatives for places in this style, both restaurants and cafes. I couldn’t help sharing with you what these places are, right? Oh, in addition to the places on that list, I also mentioned others that have vegetarian and vegan menus in the post for best restaurants in St. Petersburg – it’s worth a look too também
Ukrop is one of the best known vegetarian and vegan restaurants in the city. It has become so popular that it currently has three units there. The decoration of the three establishments is a grace, full of plants scattered among the tables. The dishes are super healthy and tasty, perfect for a light meal.
The falafel is among one of the most requested dishes by Ukrop customers. There they also sell various smoothies and fresh juices, all delicious. Best of all, the prices are great. A plate of cherry dumplings, for example, costs $ 260. Converting the value, it averages 15 reais.

Another favorite of St. Petersburg vegetarians is Botany. Even those who do not follow this type of food fall in love with the place. Their food is very tasty and rich in nutrients. The menu has several salads, soups, curry, pasta and many other options.
Part of the menu is reserved for traditional Russian foods made without meat, such as borscht soup. For those who do not want to risk too much when choosing the dish, a good order is spaghetti with zucchini and pesto. The vegan options are more limited, but it is still an incredible place for you to visit.

Food and bakery in vegetable box
The proposal of the Veggie box food and bakery is a little different from the other restaurants on the list, because they work as a fast-food scheme. Pizzas and hamburgers are the two most popular types of food there.
As they do not take long to prepare the dishes, this is a great option for those who want to eat something tasty and get it ready fast – something always useful on busy days of travel. Ah, if you want to have a complete meal, including dessert, you will also find wonderful options there. They sell delicious cakes and also tiramisu – all vegan!

RA Family’s focus is on serving tasty dishes with raw ingredients. Few menu options take some cooking, which is why the restaurant concept is so different from the others. Among the most popular dishes there are falafel, pasta, hamburgers and also soups.
The decoration of the place is also a grace, all with a little rustic style. The walls are white bricks and the tables are all wooden. Even the presentation of the dishes follows this line. Some of them come on top of pieces of trunk – quite different, right?

Kafe Troitsky Most
Troitsky Most is one of the oldest vegetarian cafés in the city and is known not only for being a local for vegetarian food, but also for the delicious dishes on the menu. They sell food for all meals, from breakfast to dinner, so it’s easier for you to decide which time to go.
With super fresh ingredients, balanced recipes and dishes without preservatives, the menu of the place conquers anyone. Mushroom lasagna is one of the most requested dishes there, in addition to the numerous soup options that always go well in the cold.
