Where and What to Eat and Drink in Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal (B)

From the pastries in every pastelaria window to the roasted chestnuts being sold on every other street corner, I discovered a plethora of tasty treats to tempt me during my quest to find the best food and drink in Lisbon. 

Here are my favourite finds, some hidden away in unexpected places, some a little more obvious. To help you find them they are all marked on this map, starting in the north of the Alfama district. These are great places to connect with local people and to discover traditional food and wine, so live like a local and join me on an edible tour of Lisbon.

This great little pastelaria is tucked down a narrow alley off Rua Cavaleiros. Venture down said alley and you’ll find a tiny courtyard with a few tables and chairs in front of the shop.

When I visited a colourful tray of Bolo Rei (King Cake) was cooling, also pictured below. This is a lovely little place to stop for a coffee and the pastel de nata (custard tart) were superb.
