Travel. Food. Photo. Lisbon.

Usually the posts in this ‘Travel.Food.Photo’ series share the foods themed by country, but as my Portuguese travels (so far) have been limited to the capital city, Lisbon, this post is dedicated to the delicious tastes of Lisbon alone.

I was delighted with the food of Lisbon. It is impressively affordable, features lots of fresh seafood, puts a local spin on widely-recognised Mediterranean dishes and values the presence of wine, cheese, sweets and espresso to complete a meal.

Lunches and dinners are often fresh grilled cod or sardines with salad, potato and lemon.

Cheese and bread are served as you sit and match a glass of wine deliciously.

‘Green wine’ or Vinho Verde is a light, fresh wine that is proudly produced in Portugal.

    1. Oh how exciting!

      Yes, I loved Bistro & Brecho Gato Pardo at Rua de Sao Vincente 10 near Campo de St. Clara as a all round cafe and lunch spot. Also, try the locally-loved restaurants along Rua dos Bacalhoeiros, on the edge of Alfama and city centre, for a great set menu featuring sardines and soup.

      My next post is all about my favourite Lisbon experiences, so stay tuned!

      Hope you have a great time. Nic

    1. It really is fresh and delicious! To be honest, I didn’t actively look for vego options (but I can assure you there are plenty of gluten-free options). I also ate a lot of vegetarian salads, vegetable soups (although check they are completely without animal stock) cheese and potatoes, so if your partner could rely on those options if nothing else.

  1. The pictures are lovely, the dishes sound yummy. I’m inspired to take a trip there; hubby’s great-grandmother was from Portugal yet no one from his family has been back.

    1. I was really surprised by how much was on offer there… and why I hadn’t heard more people rave about it. Can’t wait for another Portugal trip!

      It would be so interesting going with some family history to enrich the cultural experience.

      Thanks for reading Barbdskyes.
