Takeout Restaurants in Lisbon: Best Menus for Eating on the Go

Lisbon is a fantastic culinary destination, with hundreds of restaurants to choose from. But if you need to eat on the go then take out is no problem – there are plenty of take away menus to tempt the visitor. The bustling Mercado de Fusao is the city’s biggest open-air food market, with most of the kiosks offering a taste of the Far East – Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese cuisine, among other tasty oriental fare. BBQ chicken is a Portuguese staple and at Valenciana you can take away portions grilled to perfection with or without chilli sauce garnish. A convenient snack-on-the-go choice is Cone a Portuguesa where traditional savoury delicacies are moulded into a cone of crusty bread served over the counter. Pizza to go is the mantra at Pizza a Pezzi, a hole-in-the-wall pizzeria located near Lisbon’s club land that does a roaring trade after hours. Fancy sushi? Head for Noori, a popular chain of take away Japanese food: delicious Miso soup is on the menu. If it’s hot and you’re not particularly hungry but could still use a bite to eat, consider a tub of frozen yoghurt from deli-style Frozz or a fresh fruit cup dished up at Café Gelo. For something more substantial and exotic, head for the huge Mercado do Ribeira. Here dozens of restaurants and cafes serve anything from hamburgers to seafood to eat in or take out. Hot, spicy curry and rich Italian pasta is the unusual pairing at Gandhi Palace and the restaurant offers a carry out service for customers on the go. Finally, if you’re feeling peckish but health conscious, pop along to Vitaminas where crisp salads, wholemeal breads and lots of fruit fill you but keep the weight down.
