“The Portuguese food scene is changing – and changing fast” – we wrote yesterday about the Portuguese Kitchens transition from classic & traditional to interesting & challenging or fun & fine as we read in Forbes. No matter what the changes are towards the cuisines we recognise from the international cities and have been searching for the 5 years we have had Lisbon as our base.
Other’s agree in our observations 🙂
Of the 10 restaurants Ann Abell highlights two of them are 5-7 minutes walk from us: A Taberna do Mar – which we highlighted yesterday as one of our own favorites and the until recently ‘secret’ haute cuisine Ceia that in it’s 6 month short life has managed to be top 15 on the list of best restaurants in Portugal and #5 in Lisbon. Its still not on our personal list because we haven’t tried it yet.
“Feast your eyes on these foodie walking tours, which reveal the flavours – and culture – of cities from Lisbon to Lima, Havana to Hanoi”
As always an interesting and inspiring intro from The Guardian – this time for a feature about Food Tours in 20 cities around the world.
Guess which part of Lisbon that is highlighted: Our hood Graça. And not only that. Again it’s our favorites that are mentioned. Penalva’s Grand ol’ Man is behind the counter on the feature image and again A Taberna do Mar gets the credit the guys deserves.
It’s a bar – but Alex told us they will get food along the way. And its still a secret – if you can call it that (its on Google Earth).
A few day ago we thought we had found the best sun-downer spot in town. At the new container restaurant & bar Okah Rooftop in Alcantera. But our new Secret Garden – is more our taste. More relaxed and casual and super DJ’s
We have been there a few times already. Guess it will be too crowded today. So we wait until tomorrow to return and spend the day at one of our favorit beaches with the amazing Atman Sessions.
Enjoy your Saturday
