At first sight Lisbon doesn’t yet offer the enormous variety of food vans, trucks, parties and festivals that most other European Cities have. But according to José Borralho, vice- president of Street Food Portugal (yes, that’s a real organisation) there are at least 250 street food concepts in the country where 60 per cent of them are found in Lisbon (we have 2 in Graca – on Miradouro da Senhora do Monte). Since April 2015, Borralho has held two successful European Street Food Festivals just outside the capital, and he says the market has grown exponentially.
