Time Out Mercado da Ribeira
Time Out Mercado da RibeiraForget everything you thought you knew about food courts. Lisbon’s fabulous Time Out Mercado da Ribeira—opened in a revamped section of this classic market by the eponymous magazine in 2014—features a head-spinning choice of gourmet stalls from more than 40 of the city’s top chefs, restaurants, and culinary experiences. Choosing between the fresh tuna prego (sandwich) on Madeira’s famous bolo do caco (carob bread) from Sea Me, the confit of suckling pig from chef Henrique Sá Pessoa (of Michelin-starred Alma), and the iconic tempura green beans from Café de São Bento is agonizing, but this kid-in-a-candy-store-level feeding frenzy is heaven on earth for gastronauts. Prepare yourself—it gets impossibly crowded; but savory satisfaction awaits those willing to fight the masses.
