  2. Tour Overview

    One of the most distinctive feature of Portuguese cuisine comes from the ocean. While you enjoy a simple grilled fish, or the seafood that abounds along our coast, you can be sure that you are in Portugal!

    Also for meat dishes, we have excellent DOP (Protected Denomination of Origin) meats. From north to south, whether it’s beef, pork or lamb. Finally, even vegetables and fruit preserve the taste of the old times. Hence some also having the DOP label, being many produced organically.

    The tour will be in one of the “more recent” traditional neighbourhoods of Lisbon, Campo de Ourique. Therefore, you will spend here your time with your guide, away from the usual mass tourism. Also, this tour is intended to be a foodie tour, for you to taste typical Portuguese cuisine. Above all, your guide will link the Portuguese culture and history with its cuisine. Explaining the origin of these simple, but traditional dishes.

    Over the course of 3 to 4 hours, you will sample typical dishes of Portuguese cuisine. You will start to tantalize your taste buds with the most typical entrees in different locations of this neighbourhood. Come and find out which they are.

    For this, you will go to the local, completely refurbished market place. Here you will have your more “refined” experiences. Among them you will taste the typical Porco Preto (Iberian Black Pork), the Bife de Atum (grilled Tuna Steak) and others.

    After that, and to wrap things up, you will have the Best Chocolate Cake of the World. It actually won an international contest! In addition, we cannot forget the Pastel de Nata. This will be in a bakery that was elected for several years as being the best of Portugal. Subsequently you will taste a variety of very unique freshly traditionally roasted almonds. Furthermore, to help your digestion, you cannot go without a Ginjinha (cherry liqueur). This particular one won the international 2016 “Great Taste” Award, as the best cherry liqueur of that year.
