Lisbon : Food Paradise

The capital city of Portugal kept amazing me since my first step on this land. Walking in small hidden roads was my favorite thing to do and the best way to discover.

When I think of Lisbon, I always think of the food! My happiest moment of the day was when I was eating lol. So I want to share this happiness to you. Here are my top restaurants in Lisbon!

Oficina do Duque

1. Time Out Mercado da Ribeira

It’s a high quality food court opposite the railway station at Cais de Sodre. I love the atmostphere, there are many locals, some of them came with family. There are a lot of stalls with many various kinds of food and drink, seriously I had to walk 3 times around this place to get an idea of what to eat. This is absolutely the place to have a fun afternoon or evening in Lisbon! So recommended!

2. Oficina do Duque

From outside, this restaurant looked very normal, but when I started to look at the menu and its description, I knew immediately that there was something great in here, and I was so right!

The waiters and waitresses were so nice with us, even if we took only starters for 2 persons, not the main courses. The presentation was very beautiful and the food was like the modern portuguese cuisine, and it tasted so good!

The restaurant is situated at the top of very steep stairwell, but believe me it’s so worth hiking up!

3. Restaurante Os Leões do Rato

If you’re searching for an authentic local restaurant, Os Leões do Rato is highly recommended. A walking distance from metro Rato would make you discover the real taste of Lisbon. There’s no menu in English, the waiter can’t speak english at all, but he was so nice. The fun part was when we had to order. We chose the cheapest one (7.50 euros)! and we were so full until lunch of the next day!

4. Pastéis de Belém

A meal is not complete without dessert, especially in the dessert paradise like Lisbon. Personally, I don’t like much the very famous places for tourists, however Pastéis de Belém is the exception.

I used to eat Pasteis de Nata (portugese tarts) before, but nothing can compare with these most famous ones of Belém!
