    Relax with a coffee.

    The Portuguese people and the inhabitants of Lisbon like to drink coffee and there are so many places to have your coffee. It is a custom to drink in a bar or a café and talk to the people. They drink lots of coffee here.

    Wines are something Portugal...

    by Lys-Noir Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wines are something Portugal is well known for. As far as the local wines are concerned, we must not forget young vinho verde and aged port wines. Because usually young wines are for us not the best choice with food, we stayed at couple of good typical portuguese alternatives:

    1) dry and good quality wine Planalto from Douro
    2) typical Grao Vasco from Dao
    3) young Casal Garcia

    BUT, we couldn´t find Solar do Vinho do Porto in order to taste different portos, it must have been closed. Well, anyway, portos are quite not my favourite.

    Bacalhau

    by barryg23 Written Oct 29, 2006
    Bacalhau

    Bacalhau (salted, dried cod) is one of the most popular dishes in Portugal. There are hundreds of variations on how to serve and there's a good chance you'll have a choice of at least one type of Bacalhau dish in any Lisbon restaurant. When you see it in the supermarket or the markets it doesn't look like the most appealing meal but the dish we tried, Bacalhau con Nates, was delicious.

    Portuguese Whine

    by Karlithus Updated Apr 8, 2013

    Portugal is very famous for it's whines.

    Alentejo, Douro, Dão, all very good zones of whine.

    In Bairo Alto you will find many "hole in the wall" bars where you can taste very good whines!
    Some of this places also have live music, usually Fado, which makes the perfect combination for whine tasting.

    Anyway, most of these bars are only open at night! So visit Bairro Alto at it's best, like from 9pm.

    Pasteis de Belem - yummiest dessert ever!

    Be sure to try the pasteis de Belem (or pasteis de nata) while you're in Lisbon. They are custard tarts and every bakery and cafe sells them. You can sprinkle some powdered sugar on them, and eat them with coffee/tea. They are absolutely delicious and make a great breakfast, snack, or dessert.

    Panaché

    Panach��

    Panaché is beer mixed with 7-up. At first I thought this drink was bit off or weird, but when I tried it, I liked it.

    Bacalhau A Gomes de Sá

    Bacalhau is one of the most important food in the Portugese cuisine. They can prepare it in many ways. Probably Bacalhau A Gomes de Sá or Bacalhau à Braz is the most delicious.

    They do eat pig's ears!

    Pig's ears with cola

    Until now I was thinking that it's only us - Lithuanians crave for pig's ears. Apparently we are outdone by the Portuguese, just because I would never imagine them in combination with cola!

    Empty snail shells

    What better indication do you need than a bag with empty snail shells in front of a local restaurant?
