We are working on an exciting project in Lisbon, and had a couple of meetings there this week. Luckily we had time to squeeze in a little sightseeing, some shopping, and lots of delicious food. Here are some of the highlights...
We kicked off our first day with a visit to the LX Factory Sunday Market. It was alive with artists and designers selling trendy wears, alongside live music, buzzy cafes, and hip boutiques.
The culinary scene in Lisbon is really exciting, with incredible food markets and hip, creative restaurants producing interesting fusion dishes.
We had an amazing meal at Prado to celebrate Mother's Day, and the desserts were especially interesting. We had mushroom ice cream with pearl barley and dulce de leche, and corn bread ice cream with sweet potato and hazelnuts.
There is breathtaking architecture all over Lisbon, and it's a pleasure to just walk the streets and soak it all in.
One evening we popped into the Time Out Market for cocktails.
Portuguese cuisine is also famous for it's seafood dishes, and it's yet another thing to love about the food scene in Lisbon.
Apparently Portugal has the highest fish consumption per capita in Europe.
On our last day, we enjoyed Pastéis de Nata with coffee for breakfast, and then headed to the Feira Da Ladra market.
We drank Portuguese wine, sifted through vintage posters and antiques, and listened to live music.
Before heading to the airport, we stopped for one more seafood lunch.
