One of my favorite things to do when traveling is trying all the local food and drinks! Lisbon did not disappoint in that area at all. Situated right on the ocean, you can get fresh seafood and enjoy a beautiful view. The Portuguese also really love to eat meat, so you will see a lot of meat dishes on the menu. I’m starting to get hungry thinking about it so let’s get right into the food and drinks you should try in Lisbon!
Pastel de Nata
These are custard filled tarts that are sooo good! I didn’t really think I would like them as much as I did. There are rumors about what place has the best ones, but to be honest I didn’t have one I didn’t like. So get them everywhere!
Or Vinho Verde. This wine is not literally green, but it just means it is young wine. It is usually sweeter also. I was also not disappointed at all at my glasses of green wine 😉
There is A LOT of seafood dishes in Portugal. They have so many that are their “specialty” too so it’s hard not to just put all of them on this list. At a restaurant you are at ask them what their specialty is or what is Portuguese and they will help you out.
Each restaurant will have a choice to get some local cheeses. I would definitely recommend trying some. You can even get a meat and cheese board if you would like.
You can get a liter of sangria for around 12-14 euros and it is very refreshing. Eating some cheese and drinking sangria while sitting on a patio is my happy place!
There are so many different foods to try in Lisbon! I don’t think you will be disappointed with any of it. I will say I was surprised that it was not as cheap as what people advertised. On average we spent 20 euros on a meal (it did include wine or a drink of some sort). This may be because Lisbon is getting more popular so prices are rising.
