Enjoy street food and outdoor dining, or simply want quick inexpensive meals in Lisbon? Go here:
MARTIM MONIZ SQUARE
Martim Moniz Square is the heart of the cityâ€™s most multi-ethnic neighborhood, home to immigrants from China, Bangladesh, Goa, and Mozambique. The square is overlooked by the castle, and offers a number of food stalls offering varied cuisines. They change from time to time, but currently thereâ€™s one for vegetarians, another for hamburgers, another for pizza, another for sushi, and another for hot dogs and cocktails. When the sun is shining, itâ€™s a nice spot to relax with a drink or meal, surrounded by a multicultural ambience and the old trams passing by.
AVENIDA DA LIBERDADE
AVENIDA DA LIBERDADE
Lisbonâ€™s luxury shopping avenue is lined with a number of kiosks serving food and refreshments. Theyâ€™re open throughout the day, and some only close late at night. Look for the one that best appeals to your taste buds: thereâ€™s one for pizza, another for hot dogs, another for salads and wraps, another for pastries.
BANANA CAFÃ‰ TRAM
THE TRAM CAFÃ‰
In the BelÃ©m district, across the street from the monastery, is an old tram now converted into a cafÃ©. At the tables around it you may enjoy a drink or a variety of light meals, such as salads and other healthy choices.
RIBEIRA DAS NAUS
RIBEIRA DAS NAUS AND MUNICIPAL SQUARE
Watch the trams go by as you sit by the kiosk of Municipal Square. It serves drinks and light meals, perfect for before or after a stroll along the waterfront nearby. One of the most popular waterfront promenades is Ribeira das Naus, to the west of Comercio Square, and thatâ€™s where youâ€™ll find another kiosk, quite busy in the afternoon as the sun goes down.
THE LUNCH TRUCKS
New in town are the lunch trucks that are parked around the city from March to October. From Monday to Friday, from 10AM to 8PM, they may be found in the Cais do SodrÃ© neighborhood, in the Amoreiras district or Saldanha Square uptown. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, from 8PM to 2AM theyâ€™re also at the top of Edward VII Park overlooking the city. On Sundays, thereâ€™s one from 10AM to 7PM at the Monsanto forest park. Different types of foods will alternate between each location, so you may find the one serving burgers, or the one with hot dogs, another with traditional Portuguese food, another with sushi, and yet another for the healthier meals offered at the Municipal Square kiosk mentioned above.
