Although Lisbon is not particularly regarded as a street food destination there are nevertheless several places where those seeking a snack on the go can head for. At Mercado da Ribeira near Cais do Sodré hungry visitors can choose from nearly 40 kiosks preparing all kinds of different meals and snacks. Similarly, there’s an appetising array of sidewalk cuisine at Mercado de Fusão, located in the city’s Baixa district. The most iconic Portuguese street food is castanhas – roasted chestnuts that are at their best from late November to mid-January. Look out for mobile braziers parked on street corners. Beira Gare is celebrated for its fabulous and filling bifanas – juicy pork steak sandwiches. Alternatively, seek out busy Casa Brasileira, which offers a scrummy range of pies, cakes and sandwiches to go. Up in Príncipe Real neighbourhood is Pizza a Pezzi, a great pizza joint that has all sorts of toppings on its menu. Along the same road is Frozz where frozen yoghurt is made onsite – a wonderful option on a hot day! Príncipe Real is also home to Cone à Portuguesa where you can grab a cone-shaped roll crammed with traditional Portuguese delicacies. For breakfast on the go turn up early at A Padaria Portuguesa-Camões, also in Chiado, for warm croissants and crunchy baguettes. And for a real belly filler, head across town and order burger and fries at Hamburgueira da Parada, an open-air kiosk set in a lovely park.
