Lisbon has the best food in the world. Get it from just outside our hotel door!
Why does it have to be so oily and over cooked?
Our foodies friends couldn’t stop instagraming items from their lunch in one of our favorite restaurants at Portinho Da Arrábida.Their previous day’s encounters with the Portuguese kitchen hadn’t impressed them (to put it mildly). They found the Portuguese dishes too heavy, too over cooked and too oily. So when they finally found our delicious fish and seafood, they had to share it.
Portuguese food is little-known outside southern Europe, which seems remarkable to anyone who’s spent any time in the country. Vegetables always make an appearance, but traditional meals are dominated by high-quality seafood and pork, expertly paired with a small number of herbs and spices. There’s rich regional variation for such a small nation. Many centuries of exploration and experimentation have resulted in a number of classic dishes that are well worth seeking out during even a short trip to the country. While several of these popular dishes come from Lisbon and surrounding areas, others originated elsewhere in the country. That’s ideal for visitors, who get a chance to try flavors from around Portugal without having to visit every small town and region to do so. Here are seven of the best to track down during your stay in the capital.
