Time Out Market is a food hall located in the Mercado da Ribeira at Cais do Sodre in Lisbon.

As Bifanas Do Afonso

Visiting Lisbon without coming to Pastéis de Belém is like leaving Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower. But there’s some confusion out there: Is a pastel de Belém a pastel de nata (custard tart)? Yes, it is — a special version. It's said to have come from the nearby Jerónimos Monastery, and has been produced by this pastry shop since it opened in 1837. Expect queues, even in the early morning, and especially in the summer. But have faith — the tarts are worth the wait. Eat it warm with cinnamon or powdered sugar — and please, don’t order one to split.

Clube de Fado

There's really only one reason to go to A Valenciana, whether you choose to take out or eat in the old-fashioned dining room: the ridiculously cheap and tasty charcoal-grilled piri-piri chicken. When perfectly done, as it is here, the chicken will be moist inside with crispy skin. Wash it all down with a beer or two.

A Valenciana

Lisbon's oldest café (opened in 1782) is known for its literary references, including its period as a second home to Fernando Pessoa. When he wasn't at A Brasileira, the famous Portuguese poet used to always sit and write at the same table and you'll now see his portrait on the walls.

Other famous personalities of Portuguese culture such as painter Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso and poet Cesário Verde were also regular clients.

Today most come here for a drink and people-watching at the outdoor tables facing Comércio Square, but it also serves lunches and dinners of Portuguese cuisine inside.
