Tour operator Eating Europe is expanding to Lisbon, Portugal. The new destination comes after the company successfully launched in Haarlem (outside of Amsterdam) earlier this year. The four-hour-long experience in the city’s medieval quarter, Mouraria, will begin on May 24.

Note: Portugal has previously been recognized by Travel Agent as a foodie destination. A 32,000-square-foot food court called the Time Out Market was our pick as one of Europe's best food markets

  • Conventional street food
  • Comfort food like the peixinhos da horta (deep fried green beans)
  • Portuguese classics accompanied by wines from different regions in Portugal
  • Beer from one of the country’s former African colonies

The foodie tour starts in Lisbon’s historic heart, the Baixa district, before it continues to Mouraria, one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city and survivor of the 1755 earthquake. The new Eating Europe experience also introduces guests to a restaurant that looks like a hidden Moorish palace, a fado (mournful form of music born in Lisbon) house, and the pastry shop voted to have the best pastel de nata (custard tart) in town to take travelers off-the-beaten-track.

Eating Europe was started in Rome in 2011 by American native, Kenny Dunn. His casual culinary walks with friends and family became the Taste of Testaccio Food Tour. After its inception, the company has launched in London, Amsterdam, Prague, Paris, and Florence.
