It smells like Portugal, tastes like Portugal and has Portugal’s colors. The chic grocery store that arrived at this neighborhood 10 years ago (and that meanwhile opened a restaurant with the same name in a street nearby) sells some of the country’s traditional products, not only the ones which tourists should take home, but also the ones the good people of Lisbon wouldn’t mind having. There’s Confiança soap’s, Castelbel’s house perfumes, “cavacas” (a sugary Portuguese mini cake) from Margaride, Easter cake from Valpaços, jams from the award-winning Meia Dúzia and, of course, the champion of all sales: the sardine (in notebooks, chinaware or in cans). If you are out of Christmas ideas here you can find some of the richest baskets in town.
