tasca da esquina

My husband and I were only in Lisbon for a couple nights during our recent travels, so we wanted to make sure we got the opportunity to dine somewhere memorable and delicious. Tasca da Esquina came highly recommended from a good friend of mine, and Eater even considers it one of the 38 Essential Lisbon Restaurants! We were sold, and decided to make our way there for a late dinner after going to a local Champions League soccer match (husband's priorities). Portuguese tapas, aka Petiscos, are apparently trending at the moment, and Tasca da Esquina does them exceptionally well. We loved the vibe here- modern but casual, with super flavorful eats. Some of the dishes offered were a little different for me (pork feet with coriander!), and there were some unique flavor combinations (octopus, sweet potato & peppermint!), but we ordered a nice assortment and everything was truly impressive. Scroll through the slideshow for more details about each unique dish! We finished with some delicious, aged port- when in Portugal, after all!
