Eating Out in Lisbon

Edit This
photo

Lisbon, along with its long and prestigious history, offers a huge list of delicacies and unique Portuguese cuisines. If you are a non-vegetarian, then your stay in Lisbon will give you an ultimate gustatory pleasure. For a typical food freak, Lisbon Restaurants offer a wide range of mouthwatering delicacies. A typical day should go along the following line when it comes to eating out in Lisbon.

Breakfast

Portuguese people do not take a heavy breakfast but that does not mean you should skip it. Portuguese bakery products are world famous and you should start your day with a cup of Cappuccino and 'pastel de nata'(custard pastry), the most popular pastry of Portugal. If you want breakfast to be a little heavier and more luxurious then you should try ‘Uma Bica’ (strong espresso) with a much heavier pastry called ‘Milfohles’ which is a pastry with layers of cream and chocolate in between every tier.

Lunch

After a taste of strong coffee with pastry at around 11:00 and a subsequent hectic tour around the city, don't forget lunch. As Portuguese people take a heavy lunch, you will see maximum activity and maximum choices in the restaurants. However, you should not visit some costly restaurants for your lunch. Rather you may take your lunch at a small but cozy roadside restaurant. You may start your lunch with caldo verde with potato, a common Portuguese soup. Baccalhau (salted cod) being the national food of Portugal, you must not miss out on it. Once you have given your hunger some initial boosting with soup and starter, you should try the main course which is a blend of Mediterranean food style with spices coming from the house of its colonial cousins. Piri piri (chili pepper), black pepper, cinnamon, vanilla and saffron are the main spice ingredients and olive oil is the base. If you visit Lisbon sometime between June and November, then your lunch should include sardines or Cozido à Portuguesa (Porteguese stew). Finally, you may finish your lunch with rice pudding garnished with cinnamon.

Dinner

After such a heavy lunch probably you will not be willing to take anything early in the evening. It is recommended also that you should not visit any restaurant early because the main life and dishes come out only late in the evening in Lisbon. You may try some good restaurants in the evening. Restaurants like Cipriani, Concha D’Ouro, Restaurant Eleven, and Casa da Comida will definitely satisfy your gastronomic desires. A Glass of Vinho Verde (green wine) with Espetada (meat on a skewer) will certainly be a good start. You can try Carne de porco à alentejanaFrancesinha (fried pork with clams) or Rojões à moda do Minho (fried pork with blood rice) as your main course. You can end the day with the most popular dessert of Lisbon, Leite-creme (a set egg custard ).

Rei dos Frangos

Cheap - yes. Tasty - yes. Atmospheric - yes. Plentiful - and how!!

Eat outdoors at long tables. The name means Chicken Place and most people seem to eat chicken and chips, although you can have fish, sucking pig or a number of other choices. Order chicken and chips and you get precisely that - a [whole] chicken and chips - so don't order two lots if there are two of you and don't go alone! You will get the requisite number of plates and chips!

Drunks from the nearby cheap bars will be around you but there are the requisite bouncers, too.

To find it stand in the more..
