Where to Eat in Lisbon
This week is all about Lisbon, Portugal. The capital of the water coasted country, Lisbon, by far, was my favorite place on my tour of Europe. Waters so crisp and blue. People so humble. And a city filled with so much culture and color, every shot is photographic. But, let’s focus on what important today… the food.
Can the Can
Minutes towards the water on Terreiro do Paço, you’ll come upon “Can the Can”. Imagine a world where can food is considered gourmet. Now take that smug look of your face, it’s not befitting, and understand that it’s possible and already been done. Can the Can has taken the taboo idea of what can food is, and showcased the delicacy that can food can become.
By honoring a culture proud of their history of canned food, especially fish, they’ve updated the outlook on what many would look at as a fad. The dishes are tasty, beautifully presented and unique. From dishes like Red fruits couscous with Port wine, Greek yogurt, peppermint and honey or Smoked mackerel with mashed sweet potatoes and leeks with tomato confit, you’ll look at tin fish very differently.
