Full description
Away from the usual mass tourism neighborhoods, you will spend your time in Campo de Ourique with a guide that actually lives in the neighborhood and knows it by heart. This tour is intended to be a foodie tour for you to taste typical Portuguese cuisine. Throughout the tour, your guide will link Portuguese culture and history with its cuisine, and explain the origin of these traditional dishes.  Over the course of 3-4 hours, you will sample typical dishes of Portuguese cuisine.  You will start to tantalize your taste buds with the most typical entrees like Carapaus Fritos (Fried Mackerels), Chouriço Assado (Roasted Chorizo), Peixinhos da Horta (Vegetable Fish), and Ovos Mexidos com Farinheira (scrambled eggs with a special sausage made of flour and spices). You will taste these, in a simple style local restaurant. 

From here, you will go to the local, completely refurbished market place, where you'll have your more 'refined' experiences. Among others, you will taste the typical Porco Preto (Iberian Black Pork), the Bife de Atum (grilled Tuna Steak), Sandes de Leitão (suckling pig sandwich) and others.

To wrap things up, you will have the Best Chocolate Cake in the World, the Pastel de Nata (it actually won the international contest), in a bakery elected for several years as the best in Portugal. Taste also some lovely roasted almonds, ending with a Ginjinha (cherry liqueur), which won the international 2016 “Great Taste” Award.
