14. Taste the second best hangover food after bifana: A Merendeira!

[*unbezahlte Werbung/unpaid ad] I have very nice memories of long beach days when we were staying at our vacation house that involved lunch at this joint, except that it was on the other side of the river and outside of Lisbon, and therefore a bit far away from home. But I recently discovered that they also own another shop in the city center of Lisbon, in the heart of the night life area 😱 which means that going there is a lot easier and more accessible! If you’re expecting something fancy, this might disappoint you 😅 The location looks like a canteen, with its rustic wooden furniture and bare walls. It’s not exactly comfy nor cozy in terms of appearance. But this is comfort food at its finest 🤤 A hearty greens soup with chorizo pieces mixed in, and a very warm chorizo bread that tastes better than all other chorizo breads I’ve ever tried (and I’ve already had many!) are sure to make you feel satisfied and really warm inside ❤️ I love how their bread (which is cooked in a stone oven!) is always warm, since they keep it under heavy blankets 🥖🔥 The dough is chewy and the chorizo ratio is very generous. Proof that good food doesn’t have to look fancy and pretentious nor be expensive (this menu cost 3,2€!) – this will always be one of my favourite places back home! ❤️#HungryDianaTakesLisbon . . . #paocomchouriço #pãocomchouriço #amerendeira #santos #sopa #caldoverde #chouriço #chorizo #bread #soup #chorizobread #merenda #merendeira #portuguesefood #comfortfood #cheapfoos #cheapeats #lisbon #lisboa #lisboafoodie #lisbonfood #lisbonfoodguide #lx #lisbonfoodblogger #lisboapontocome #zomato #zomatopt #goofodielx
