Where to Eat in Portugal

Mercado do Bolhão: A Glimpse Back at Village Life from Modern-Day Porto

One of the most authentic markets you are likely to come across in all of Europe, the Mercado do Bolhão is both lively and captivating. Open since 1850, the market’s two-story wrought iron housing is in desperate need of restoration, but that doesn’t stop the bustle of vendors and shoppers from filling it’s halls like it was just opened recently.

Bonjardim: Lisbon’s “King of Chickens”

Tucked along a small side street, Bonjardim makes its home in an unassuming building in an unassuming corner of a city full of restaurants with staff begging you to come eat with them. No one will chase you down the street with fliers trying to bring you to Bonjardim, but then again, why should they, the smell of the food takes care of that for them.
