Every bite of food in Lisbon was completely unbelievably delicious. Looking back on the photos, there may have been a few too many bites for two days. Three tours (all involving food and alcohol)l, a visit to the Time Out Mercad da Ribeira (a wonderful food emporium), a visit to a 137 year old patisserie (Pastéis de Belém), a trip to the Nutella store helped fill my belly.
I tried sardines, cod fritters, black Iberian ham, custard tarts, and the most magical salad with ice cream on it.
The tawny port was complimented by cheese and Queen’s jam “Romeo and Juliet.” I tried two types of the Ginjinha, a delicious cherry liquor. I tried the white and red vinho verde (green wine) and preferred the white.
I hope you’ll go soon and try all these delights and more!
