Lisbon: Treats and Eats

When eating in Lisbon, you must eat bacalhau, or codfish.  It´s the specialty of Portugal. And of course, Port wine.  Some restaurant highlights below:

1. Jardin de Graca

This restaurant is no frills but yummy and low-priced food.  Located in the Alfama district, you´ll find a family owned place that serves hearty portions with delicious codfish.  See pictures below



Lamb approx 7 euros

Codfish approx 8 euros

jug of house wine approx 2 euros

DON´T FORGET to order the famous sheep cheese, Queijo de Azeitão.  It´s delicious.

2.  Faca e Garfo (Fork and Knife)

This restaurant is located in the Baixa district, quite close to the Convento do Carmen.  I again had the codfish and Jorge roast chicken. We had red wine, cheese, a salad, the main dish, and 2 coffees, I think the total price was 22 euros.  Definitely not bad.

Delicious Treats: Make sure you try the famous pastries Lisbon has, and of course above the delicious port wine.  Don´t feel bad drinking a lot, it´s supposed to help digestion!

Even more treats: take a trolley ride!  The 28 is especially fun, it´s old school and goes from the Baixa up the hill to the Alfama.  Watch your purse though-it´s a pickpockets galore.

One last and final treat.  Wander the tiny streets of Lisbon and enjoy.  There is famous tile everywhere and it´s run down in a charming way.  Enjoy!
