What people say

"No trip to Lisbon is complete without a visit to the famous Time Out Market. You can find the best of Lisbon under one roof: the best chefs, restaurants, cultural events and cooking workshops - it is claimed to be the world's first editorially curated food and cultural market. Here you can find every variety of food you can possibly imagine. Portuguese recommendations are Caldo Verde or Bacalhau but my personal recommendation is the Marlene Viera stall which serves delicious Portuguese food. Ground Burger is also a popular option for those who are less bothered about trying the local cuisine. Note that the Time Out Market is certainly not the cheapest place to eat - don't be fooled by the concept of a "market"."
"While many will tell you to go to the Time Out market, the River market next door is also very interesting. Originally the whole structure was a large farmers and fisherman’s market, but it began to fall behind as locals went to supermarkets. However then Time Out purchased a section for restaurants and the actual market saw a revival as well, with many restaurants of Time Out choosing to buy ingredients from the market. "
"Large food court near the waterfront. It’s not nearly as cool as it was a decade ago, as it’s gotten super touristy, but it really is a must visit spot. My friends swear by the octopus hotdog and oysters. I always try something new. The last time I devoured a wonderful half grilled chicken. Stop by the terrific wine shop and also the gelato stall for a decadently rich and creamy dark chocolate."

Mentioned in these guides

Complete guide with attractions and venues where to eat/drink, get those very special souvenirs from (bespoke & local brands and markets) and catch a beautiful sight…or just your breath after walking up and down the hills of this marvellous city. Lisbon is all about art, colors, architecture and GOOD vibes! 🇵🇹💚 💡General tip: combine Lisbon with visits/stays in Sintra and Porto. Highlights: 🚋 Trams - The Lisbon tramway network is a system of trams in operation since 1873; it presently comprises six lines and has a length of 31 km with 63 trams in operation (45 historic "Remodelados", 8 historic "Ligeiros" and 10 modern articulated trams). Tram 28 is famous because happens to go past many of the city's most significant landmarks in districts like Alfama, Baixa and Estrela. Because the route also uses some heritage-style tram carriages, it has become a popular tourist attraction in the city. 💠 Azulejos - is a form of Spanish and Portuguese painted tin-glazed ceramic tilework. Azulejos happen to be one of the most distinctive art forms in Portugal and are found on the interior and exterior of churches, palaces, ordinary houses, schools, and nowadays, restaurants, bars and even railways or subway stations. 🧼 Soaps - Oprah Winfrey said they're one of her favorite things, so the world is now also a fan of Portuguese soaps. But they're not recent products. They've been made since the 1800s and are 100% natural. They've maintained beautiful Art Deco and Art Nouveau packagings from the 1920s, and have become one of the favorite gifts to take from Portugal. 🥮 Pastel de nata - is a Portuguese egg custard tart pastry, optionally dusted with cinnamon - looks like a cross between a custard tart and a cake; created by monks in the Jerónimos Monastery, a major tourist attraction today and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 🍲You also have to try these traditional dishes: Bifana, Sardines, Caracoletas & Prego na Pao, Alheira de Mirandela, Queijadas. 🧉Ginja - also known as ginjinha. This sour cherry liqueur is a tourist favorite but has sweetened locals’ palates for a long time too. There are establishments in Lisbon entirely dedicated to selling this sweet beverage made with Morello cherries, a variety of spices, and plenty of sugar. Nowadays, ginja is also served in edible chocolate cups. While you may choose among white chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate, dark chocolate does indeed pair beautifully with the super sweet, almost syrupy drink.
