Full description
Away from the usual mass tourism neighborhoods, you will spend your time in Campo de Ourique with a guide that actually lives in the neighborhood and knows it by heart. This tour is intended to be a foodie tour for you to taste typical Portuguese cuisine. Throughout the tour, your guide will link Portuguese culture and history with its cuisine, and explain the origin of these traditional dishes.   Over the course of 3-4 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 in this neighborhood. Come and find out which they are. From here, you will go to the local, completely refurbished market place, where you'll 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. To wrap things up, you will have the Best Chocolate Cake in the World, the pastel de nata (it actually won the international contest), in a bakery elected for several years as the best in Portugal. Taste also some lovely roasted almonds, ending with a Ginjinha (cherry liqueur), which won the international 2016 “Great Taste” Award.

An EXCEPTIONAL visit! Rodrigo is a passionate and exciting guide! Lovers of his country and who knows how to transmit this love! Rodrigo is one of the best guides I have met in my life, mixing knowledge, kindness and benevolence. Visit at the top of a gastronomic point of view, generous and gourmet! We really discover Portuguese gastronomy! We are in a district far from the tourist crowds and which corresponds to the daily life of the Portuguese! I recommend this great experience! And thank you again Rodrigo!

It was a very personal food tour because we were the only participants. You don't have to go far, which is not a disadvantage after exhausting sightseeing tours in Lisbon. Here we learned a lot about the country and its people as well as the food. Anyone who loves spices should definitely visit the stand with the almonds and spices in the market hall on the right and seek advice and seduction from the charming saleswoman. The spices are great and cheap! Any time!
