MY TOP 5 PLACES TO EAT IN LISBON

Thursday, 22 October 2015
As you must know by now, I am a total foodie and especially when travelling, I like to make sure that we try as many local foods as possible (street food, snack, cakes) and get to visit the best restaurants to eat of course! When in Lisbon, we were certainly not disappointed with the food. Here I share with you my TOP 5 places to eat in Lisbon and I hope you will enjoy them. Here we go! 

1. RAMIRO CERVEJARIA
(Best for their seafood)
For the best seafood in town, definitely head to Ramiro! Check out my post (here) for more details on what we ate there. It was totally awesome!! 


2. TIME OUT - MERCADO DA RIBEIRA
(Best for EVERYTHING food!!)
 This is one place not to be missed! We stopped here for lunch and there were so many stalls to choose from (and we wanted to eat everything) that we came back for dinner the same day. It is definitely the best place to visit for foodies, where the best of the city's restaurants and food shops have gathered under the same room for the perfect foodie heaven! During the day, there are even some cooking demonstrations you can assist which makes for the best day ever! Go there hungry!


3. SANTINI 
(Best ice cream / gelato)
Santini is the best and most famous ice cream parlour in Portugal and you have got to give it a try! We try the Strawberry and Vanilla flavour. Perfect combination :p So yummy on a hot day! 

4. LANDEAU CAFÉ
(Best Chocolate Cake)


We spent one lovely afternoon at Landeau Café, having one of the best chocolate cakes we have ever had. A mix of chocolate mousse and a soft and moist brownie, this chocolate cake was amazing! We stopped here for a coffee break after a long walk around town and we were happy to just sit here and chill out in such a cozy environment. We visited their branch in Chiado on Rua das Flores. Perfect little retreat from a busy day of sightseeing. If you love chocolate. Make this a must :) 


5. RESTAURANTE MARISQUEIRA UMA 
(Best arroz de marisco)
 


Come here for the Arroz de Marisco. A divine dish made from lovely, rich seafood and shellfish broth with creamy rice. It can be compared to either a very watery paella or risotto. Try it and it will be the best dinner you will ever have in central Lisbon. The restaurant is fairly small and run by a family so be patient. Do not expect restaurant standard service. During busy times, you might need to wait a little while. It is a little gem found in a little street off central Rua de Prata and definitely worth a visit! We didn't try any other dish so wouldn't be able to comment on the rest of the menu but definitely.... Arroz de Marisco!


I hope you get to try my TOP 5 when you visit Lisbon. Let me know your thoughts after you have visited. I would love to hear about your experience. :) 

Thanks for reading!
