Some Say We Have the Best Food Tours in Lisbon

 


The Tastiest Food Tours in Lisbon

Apart from extravagant tiles and baroque architecture, Lisbon is known for its culinary delights.

Like many countries in Europe where food is ingrained into the culture, Portuguese cuisine and wine vary from region to region but there is one thing that never changes, the quality! It is hard to underestimate just how passionately locals in Lisbon feel about their food and wine. Needless to say, a visit to Lisbon is not complete without joining a Lisbon food tour and sampling the best local cuisine.

One of the best ways to taste the local food scene is to join our food tours in Lisbon. Many visitors to Portugal are not familiar with the country’s rich gastronomy or where to get the best traditional dishes. Unfortunately, Portuguese cuisine tends to be overshadowed by its Spanish, Italian and French neighbors. 

For this reason, joining our Lisbon food tours with a local guide will introduce you to local and traditional Portuguese specialties. On our Lisbon food tours, you’ll explore Lisbon’s colourful neighborhoods and enjoy the local Portuguese flavors. 

Portugal’s fortunate geographic location allows the country to excel in different specialties from the amazingly fresh seafood caught just off the coast to the porco preto (Black Iberian pig), who roam freely in the oak forest feeding on acorns that give them their mouth-watering nutty flavour. And of course, no visit to Lisbon is complete with tasting dishes with one of the most iconic ingredients of Portuguese cuisine – the dried and salted cod, bacalhau.

Joining our Lisbon food tours will take you up and down the hilly back-streets, to praças (plazas), local eateries and neighborhood pastelarias that serve classic sweets (oh, those pastel de natas!) meticulously handmade  following the original recipes handed down throughout generations.

Lisbon does not disappoint when it comes to it’s local wines either. Because Portugal’s wine culture developed in relative isolation, there are many grape varieties that do not grow anywhere else in the world. As always, our local Lisbon food tour guides will share their favorite spots with stories that bring the history and culture of Lisbon passionately to life. 

We are confident that by joining a food tour in Lisbon, you will explore innovative trends of cuisine and will make you feel immersed into the food culture of Portuguese. You will leave our food tours ready to explore Lisbon’s culinary delights as a local!
