Triangulos Verduras is closed all day Sunday and on Monday evening. Vegan options in this city are extremely limited. There is a pension with a bar/restaurant called Casa Felisa, rua Porto Pena no 5 that has several vegan options: oven roasted vegetables, small galician fried green peppers delicious and spaghetti with tomato sauce though you have to say no cheese and may need the Spanish phrasebook as little English is spoken in Galicia cf to southern Spain. There is also a small bio shop stocking various vegan items including frankfurters. Listing to be added.
Santiago is a beautiful town to wander round but one-two days was enough for me. If you go, unless you\'re heavily into religious art and churches you will likely find a day or two visit, or a day trip is enough. Accessible by coach fro, various locations, including Porto: www.alsa.es

We only spent a night in Santiago on our way to Portugal in late March 2007. I would go back though, as it was a really nice place, more interesting than I had expected. We ate at the veggie restaurant listed on HappyCow. It was tasty, although limited vegan selections and no vegan dessert. The staff was friendly. I can't remember the name of my dish, but it was basically zucchini wrapped around rice with a tomato sauce. It sounds boring and bland, but it was actually DELICIOUS. Just well prepared with the perfect blend of seasonings. Simple and nice. There's another restaurant that is supposed to have a vegan menu, but it was very crowded when we went by. I'll list the info for it on here when I have a chance though. There was also a health food shop. I think the name of the street was New Market or something like that. It was closed cause we were there on a Sunday. I was pleased to find that even the little convenience stores carried things like soy milk. And for the lactos out there, my fiance adored the local smoked cheese he bought. You'll see it in all the shop windows.
