Portugal is no longer an under-the-radar food destination: the secret’s out, and that’s at least in part due to the popularity of the revamped Mercado da Ribeira, now featuring the Time Out Market.
What to eat? When you enter, make a beeline for the back of the main hall, where some of the most special fare can be found: OG octopus salad from Henrique Sá Pessoa, and specialties from Marlene Vieira and Alexandre Silva. Make sure to save just a little room for the most perfect pasteis de nata you’ve ever had at Manteigaria, still-hot with crackling crust and molten custard.
Pipsqueak tip Aim to arrive early in the day to avoid the elbow-to-elbow crowds, but the efficient staff clear trays and provide highchairs to make it easier on families. Burn off some energy at the playground in the adjacent park just outside the side doors.
