Description

Explore Sintra on a food walk with Isabel, a true foodie who knows the best places to taste local “petiscos” (dishes of traditional Portuguese food).

In between palaces with unique architecture and streets marked by stories, discover the secret of one of the most iconic villages of Portugal through its gastronomy. Isabel is a good knower of Portuguese food and knows how to recommend, as no one else, the best tidbits in places that go unnoticed to those who are visiting.

Enjoy dishes such as “morcela” (black pudding) with pineapple, “queijo da serra” (cheese) with ham, octopus sauteed in caramelized onion sauce and codfish fried rolls with arugula. Local pastries are included as well, like the traditional “Travesseiros de Sintra” (a sweet made of puff pastry with a filling of almond cream) and “queijada” Sintra pillow and the delicious “queijada” (made from fresh cheese, sugar, eggs, flour and a little cinnamon wrapped in a crispy batter).

What’s included

  • Lunch (local “petiscos”: dishes of traditional Portuguese food)
  • Drinks (water, juices or wine and coffee)
  • 2 Local sweets and “Ginjinha” (cherry liqueur)
  • Experience available in English and Portuguese

I was born in the Alentejo, but I grew up in Cascais, I think that’s maybe the reason why I have a wild soul. I love traveling, eating and scuba diving and it is my pleasure to show you my town through our amazing gastronomy.
