I am heading to Lisbon & Porto in May and wanted to pick the brains(and taste buds) of you fine folks, to get an understanding of where and what I should not miss.
Apart from 1 splurge meal, I am looking for advice on places that are for locals, not fancy and (where possible) doing one thing really well.
I don't yet have a short list of restaurants, but I do not want to come back not having tried the following:
- Portugese Cheese
- Ginjinha & Edwardinha
- Cataplana of some sort
- Fresh Grilled Sardines
- All the wine (yes....all of it)
- Natas and other sweet things (I hear the portugese love their sweets)
- A Cozido or 2 or a dozen
I'll eat anything and anywhere.
