Lisbon Favorites List

Here's the Favorites List for Lisbon! Writing this made me miss it, can't wait to go back and explore more! (And eat way more sardines and caldo verde...)



List after the jump!



CAFÉ A BRASILEIRA
Classic old school place, with a location great for people watching and, I think, the city's best pastéis de nata.

O TREVO
Not sexy, just straight up classic. Get a bifana and douse it in piri piri oil.

CASA DA ÍNDIA
Like O Trevo, not a fancy place. Just a place where you can get fantastic Portuguese food, large portions at a great price. Anything grilled definitely recommended. Great caldo verde also.

CAULINO
Pottery studio with a front section where students can sell their wares. Really cute stuff in here.

NOTO
Awesome interior decor store near Mercado da Ribeira.

MERCADO DA RIBEIRA
An old traditional produce market gets a make over as a multi stall food court where modern Portuguese chefs serve their takes on classic Portuguese fare.

LX FACTORY
Super cool old buildings filled with creative studios, offices, and modern shops and cafes. Go on a Sunday to also take advantage of the flea market in the street.

100 MANEIRAS
Pretty fancy, prix fixe menu. All Portuguese wines and ingredients. Really delicious, really fun, and totally great value. All of the service was great, but I basically wanted to be best friends with the sommelier, such a cool guy.

ENTRE TANTO
Indoor market with many different vendors, a juice bar, and a cafe.

COPENHAGEN COFFEE LAB
The coffee in Lisbon is great, bitsy espresso style, and a good galão is a good galão. But sometimes you just need to take a break and have a satisfying pour over... This place is also really cute inside. Bonus.

LIVRARIA ARTES E LETRAS
Cute bookstore covered in small drawings and letterpress prints.

MUSEU DO DESIGN E DA MODA
Located in the historic center of Lisbon in an old bank, this museum shows interesting exhibits and the venue itself is fascinating.

MUSEU COLEÇÃO BERARDO
Great modern art museum a bit on the outskirts of town, but a very quick train ride. If you go, definitely also go to Pastéis de Belém and have the OG pastel de nata.

PASTÉIS DE BELÉM
The one that invented it all... A Portuguese must have.
