Unfairly, Portuguese food tends to get lost next to its Spanish neighbour’s more famous tapas and paella, but Lisbon is rightly gaining a reputation as an eclectic foodie paradise. A favourite amongst locals is the Mercado da Ribeira market, the biggest fresh food market in the city. Its 35 kiosks offer regional delicacies and specialities of all kinds, perfect for snacking and stocking up for picnics. Unsurprisingly, for a city perched on the edge of the Atlantic, fish is a mainstay of Portuguese cuisine. If seafood is your thing, stop off at Cervejaria Ramiro in Intendente (nicknamed “The Seafood Temple”) to enjoy the catch of the day. Don’t forget to stop by a bakery afterwards for a pastel de nata, Lisbon’s famous sweet custard tart. In the evening, head to the Bairro Alto district, traditionally the artists’ quarter. Now its 16th century streets are a maze of quirky bars, alternative shops, and clubs that stay open late into the night.
