So you may remember when we travelled to Lisbon to showcase Breaks of London, where we teamed up to show some of their amazing clothing designs? Well, we had a totally awesome time while we were there!
It was our second time to Portugal, we had previously visited the northern city of Porto, where there are some crazy big waves for surfing and of course… lots of Port!
While in Lisbon, we seemed to eat so much! The food was delicious – especially the peri-peri chicken. If you love Nando’s (dont judge us!), then you will totally love the food in Lisbon! 🙂 All the meals we had were unbelievable fresh; lots of salads and nuts drizzled in olive oil, balsamic vinegar and homemade breads and of course the most delicious white and red wines you can imagine!
We are definitely foodies and we love to have some really great meals out – the Peri Peri chicken was really the best we have ever tasted! The chicken was so soft and they give you a little brush to add your own peri-peri glaze on right at the table. Our other notable meal was a matured steak that you cook directly on your table with HOT stone. Trust me when I say the stone was hot! It was radiating heat! It was truly delicious. The only downside to this is that you do look a little messy after, as it splatters juices all over the place. Our advice – wear a bib! 🙂
The city itself is very old and has lots of historical significance for Portugal and the world – being at the centre of the enlightenment and the age of discovery, Lisbon has lots of worldly influences that bring about a vibrancy that is unmatched in Portugal.
We loved our time in Lisbon. In fact, we struggled to get back onto the plane, not just because we had eaten so much, as your probably thinking, but because it really was an awesome place to visit!
If your heading to Lisbon, or thinking about a European city vacation – definitely try Lisbon – which promises some of the best food EVER! If you want to know the names of the restaurants we visited, send us a little email, we will gladly share!
