Time Out Market

Cais do Sodre
Food Hall

Several chefs who run restaurants in this guide operate stalls in this uber-popular riverside food hall. Henrique Sá Pessoa (of Alma) serves slow-cooked leitão, or suckling pig; Pharmacia’s Susana Felicidade’s outpost offers hearty bowls of octopus stew. Other options include sushi, gourmet burgers, crispy croquettes, and ice cream from legendary Santini, which has been a Lisbon staple since 1949. The upper level is now home to renowned restaurant Pap’açorda, which moved from its original Bairro Alto location in 2016. It doesn’t matter what time you go, it is always busy here. But, it’s still a great way to sample the creations of the city’s hautest talents all under one roof.
