Portuguese people are very passionate about their food. They often discuss what to eat for dinner at lunch, so it’s no surprise that this is our first pick regarding what to do in Lisbon. Your local host will quickly throw together some queijo de Azeitão, coupled with chouriço de porco preto, bread from Alentejo and a bottle of wine, probably from Alentejo too. And that’s just for starters.
From the world-famous bacalhau to the heavenly polvo à lagareiro, you’ll never want to leave the table. And you won’t have to, because Portuguese people are also known to get lost amidst dinner conversations and a glass of Port wine until the late hours of the evening. If you are more into trying different types of dishes at once but also enjoying a bit of sightseeing ask your local host to take you on a Lisbon food tour created according to your preferences.
