TASTE OF LISBOA
real people, real food

If you are in Lisbon and feel like having lunch around 11:00 or 15:00, your best choice is definitely to book your place in one for our food tours. If you feel like a few beers and someting tho bite at 18.00, it is also possible. In Portugal, any time is a good time to eat! Regardless of your stomach time, there is an old saying that sums up the Portuguese spirit perfectly: meal time is sacred, like the cult of the shared meal...

Portuguese have a word of its own. It has no translation in any other language and describes perfectly the emptiness when we know we'll miss something, or someone. Even before it happens. It's called Saudade.

You migh not be Portuguese, but iIf you already walk through Lisbon, if you seen Castle Hill bring to life at the first Sun light or the sensation of explosion in the taste buds at first bite in a custard tart, certainly you know what we are talking about.

Are you not Portuguese? If you already walked through Lisbon, contemplating its light from the sun raise to redden in intense sun sets over a deep blue sky, if your tastebuds had a blast at first bite on a custard tart or on a Bifana sandwich with mustard, we bet you know what feeling we're talking about...

It's common to find in Christmas markets of white Europe, less in the warm winters of its South. We gather for you 8 places where you can taste a good glass of mulled wine in Lisbon.

Portuguese wine lovers say we're spoiling wine and purists say that drinking mulled wine it should be with negative temperatures we have no memory of here in Lisbon. We love wine, and we love hot wine, we don’t care! We also have an ice rink at Praça do Comércio and Lisbon only snowed once or twice!

Our apologizes to purists: it doesn't snow in Lisbon, we don’t suffer from negative temperatures, but that does not mean we cannot enjoy a glass of mulled wine as many times as we feel like...
