Landing in Lisbon!

We would like to give a special thanks to our awesome locals Mariana and Pedro for sharing their Lisbon with us!!!

Lisbon, one of the oldest cities in the world and the oldest city in Western Europe, predates many other modern European capitals such as London, Paris and Rome by hundreds of years.

The modern vibe and historical influence are seen together in this city. This has impact on the variety of the cuisine and food found in Lisbon, making it a real foodie haven.

Below you will find restaurants serving up local cuisine, offering great views, specializing in meat and burgers and dessert.

Address: Rua Portas de Santo Antão 150, 1150-269 Lisboa, Portugal

 

Cervejaria Ramiro

Local food. Book in advance. This is primarily turns out to be a shell food extravaganza and the first place any local recommends, as it’s a very popular seafood restaurant . The seafood is super fresh and some of the locals’ favorites are the Shrimp in Garlic Sauce and Grilled Tiger Prawns. The one thing you may not expect, but the locals highly recommend is the Steak Sandwich! We had a try and it was amazing!

Taberna da Rua das Flores

Local food. They do not take reservations, the lines can be long because it’s a small restaurant. But the wait is more than justified, with a constantly changing menu, makes this one loved by the locals.

Pasteis de Belem

Since 1837, locals and visitors to Lisbon have visited the bakery to purchase fresh from the oven pastéis de nata, sprinkled with cinnamon and powdered sugar. Their popularity normally results in long lines at the take-away counters, in addition to waiting lines for sit-down service. Also a side note the deep fried cod balls are just amazing here as well!
