Top 10 things to do in Foz

Top 10 things to do in Foz

The history of Porto lives in the streets of Foz, where the Douro gives way to the Atlantic and mornings blend into evenings. There is something about this seaside neighbourhood that hits home. Could it be the tranquil power of the Atlantic? That helps, certainly, but this fishing village turned high-class hotspot turned something between the two gets a lot of things right when it comes to enjoyment. Philosophical musings aside, Foz is one of the most beautiful areas in Porto. The promenades here are neverending, extending into the horizon as a treasure-trove of fantastic restaurants competes for your appetite, the life-giving water protected by the remains of fortresses. These are the best things to do in Foz, Porto’s most marvellous neighbourhood.

Hergé

Hergé

The main gallery at Calouste Gulbenkian Museum’s main building will host “Hergé”, an exhibition that brings together an important selection of documents, original drawings and various works created by the famous author of Tintin. Presented for the first time at the Grand Palais, in Paris, in collaboration with the Hergé de Louvain-la-Neuve Museum, the exhibition reveals the multiple sides of this renowned artist, from illustration to comics, including advertising, press, fashion design and fine arts.

Underdogs Gallery

Underdogs Gallery

Founded in 2010 in a huge warehouse in the neighbourhood of Braço de Prata, it displays artwork by the most publicised artists of this time - from Wasted Rita to Alexandre Farto, who was discovered by Vhils, probably one of the most respected names in Portugal when it comes to urban interventionism. It’s as much an exhibition space as a venue for artistic residences and, since we’re on the theme of versatility, it has a sister in Cais do Sodré: Art Store opened in 2014 and there you can not only buy art, but also eat a bagel or drink craft coffee.

Maître Renard – Fromagerie

Maître Renard – Fromagerie

Ulysse and Quentin are both originally from Poitiers, France. They met at school and ran into each other in Lisbon years later. They missed cheese so much
t hat they decided to open a whole store dedicated to it in Lisbon, despite their 
first idea being opening a bar. The fact
is that they managed to combine both gastronomic pleasures under one roof: at Maitre Renard one can not only find cheese but also beer and wine. “In France, a meal without cheese is not a proper meal”, says Ulysse – maybe that’s why 40% of the shop’s clients are French. The cheeses come from places such as St. Antoine, St. Nectaire, Azeitão and Setúbal. The wine menu also includes French and Portuguese wines, and the artisanal beers come from France, Portugal, Italy and New Zealand. Butter and homemade mustard are also available.

Uma Lulik

Uma Lulik

This brand new contemporary art gallery is located in Alvalade and focuses essentially 
on South American, African, Middle Eastern and South Asian artworks. Miguel Leal Rios, collector and owner of the Leal Rios Foundation, knows Timor-Leste and decided to honour his childhood memories with a “lulik”, the Timorense word that means “holy house” and symbolises social unity. It’s like Uma Lulik wished to be a holy house for contemporary
art in Lisbon. The gallery’s first exhibition is called “Ausência” and shows works of Joël Andrianomearisoa, from Madagascar. His “colossal” oeuvres are made out of small, collectable objects, in a reference to people’s memories and objects. With Uma Lulik, Miguel Leal Rios wants to publicize the works of artists from those regions, create a room for discussion, and appeal to new audiences.

Ementa SB

Ementa SB

This store could have wheels. Ten friends who shared a passion for skating, gained 
a substantial group of fans through YouTube by sharing videos with skate pirouettes, juggling and humour. Their motto was (and still is) to “eat, sleep and skate”. The success of the group’s videos on the Internet lead them to produce t-shirts with logos of their brand. From the moment they shared the first video, in 2007, until now, t-shirts became only one of many pieces of clothing. In its physical store – that opened in Travessa do Rosário, near Praça da Alegria, in September –, Ementa sells shirts, sweaters, polo shirts, caps, leather wallets and even bags, and they’re all produced in Portugal. Skateboards are also available, of course. The slogan sums up the group’s journey: “motivated by friendship”.

Mercado Simply Portuguese

Mercado Simply Portuguese

Chef Miguel Castro e Silva likes light meals ever since he opened his first restaurant, which means you’ll find lots of “petiscos”
in this market. From a 25-year-old recipe
of black-eyed peas salad to three egged omelettes, there is indeed much to choose from. The main influence behind the menu is traditional Portuguese gastronomy. Located at the ground floor of The Lumiares hotel, this restaurant/cafetaria offers variety of ways for one to eat: besides Portuguese tapas, there are proper meals, and even a 14€ menu that includes soup, main course, one drink and an expresso. Not sure what to drink? Go for a wine that the chef homself produces together with Rui Reguinha.

Naked

Naked

3 out of 5 stars

This is a restaurant for those who enjoy diversity: Naked is neither vegetarian
nor vegan, but “flexitarian”. One can
 see homemade kombucha and highly caloric pastry placed side by side on the shelfs. Putting labels aside, let’s just say
it is willing to make everybody happy. At Naked, as the name suggests, every dish
is prepared with natural ingredients, with meat and processed food not entering in the equation. Fruits and vegetables are thus the main actors of the restaurant’s recipes, that include sweet potato vichyssoise and tomato shakshouka. The owners Miguel Júdice and Carla Contige, chef Susana Rainha and blogger Joana Limão are the brains behind the menu.

Gorki

Gorki

Three Portuguese students said one day in Marbella, where they studied Hotel Management: “We will open a Gorki in Lisbon one day”. And so it happened, 10 years later. Gorki was sort of a canteen for them back in Spain: they went there nearly every day, the waiter knew them, and dating and engagement proposals took place 
there. Now these friends don’t have to cross
a border in order to have their favourite tapas: Gorki Lisbon offers a mix between the original Spanish menu and a few Portuguese-inspired dishes. The philosophy behind the restaurant, however, remains the same: Gorki’s food is to share. There is a small grocery store for customers to be able to take some of the ingredients home.

Cochinchina

Cochinchina

2 out of 5 stars

The Portuguese use the word “Cochinchina” to refer to a far, far away – and quite abstract – place that no one really understands where it is. Yoon Chain Lai wanted to change that and remind people that Cochinchina does exist: according to Portuguese navigators from the 16th century, it refers to the Southern region of Vietname. And now there is a Cochinchina in Lisbon too. This Vietnamese restaurant is not a fan
of rushing things: dishes are prepared “without shortcuts”, everything taking
all the time it is supposed to take. Soups, noodles and pho play important roles on the menu. As for drinks, there is beer from Japan (Sapporo), Thailand (Singha) and China (Tsingtao). There is room for 24 customers in two rooms and the decorations come, of course, from Yoon’s homeland.

The Paleo Kitchen

The Paleo Kitchen

2 out of 5 stars

It’s the latest trend when it comes to diet. Loren Cordain, one of the founders of the paleo movement, claims that the human metabolism did not change more than 0,02% since pre-history, and that we should embrace the cavern men’s diet. Sandra Cardoso Monteiro, this restaurant’s owner, believes we don’t need to go that far: “We just have to look at our grandparents”, she says. It is possible, according to Susana, to achieve all the benefits of a paleo diet without becoming fundamentalist: an 85% paleo diet will do. At Paleo Kitchen, there are no such things as lactose, refined sugar or preservatives. All the ingredients are biological and the fish comes from sustainable fishing. The recipes have low glycaemia levels and use only “good fats” (from salmon and dried fruits, for instance). Formality does not enter this place: one can eat at all times of the day, and that’s why Susana prefers to call it a bistro.

A Cozinha do Manel

A Cozinha do Manel

4 out of 5 stars

A Cozinha do Manel, in the Campanhã area, is a city classic and it remains in great shape. Critic Alfredo Lacerda can testify to that; he dined there in September and left delighted by the duck rice and the roast veal, “seasoned in the previous day to perfection”. But don't neglect the walls. At Cozinha do Manel, everything is traditional, and in typical Portuguese style you will find portraits of notable people hanging from the walls. Big names from all sports, jet-setters, prime-ministers... Everybody is there. They got their picture taken and they ate corn bread, which comes fresh everyday from Avintes, damp and tasty.

Zero Zero

Zero Zero

4 out of 5 stars

It opened as a special dough pizzeria, based on the poolish method, a kind of pre-fermentation with several phases and several flours (among them the 00) and good Italian ingredients. But that was a conversation that lasted for a few weeks, because what the locals kept in mind and the type of information they exchanged between them was: "pizzas in a wood oven", "cocktails are great", "that showcase of cheeses and sausages at the entrance it's crazy "," go to the terrace, it’s incredible "," you have to wait a while in the queue, but it goes by fast." Since May 2018, you can also try Zero Zero's pizzas at the Time Out Market Lisboa. Perfect for: stocking up on good cheeses and Italian sausages.Must try: Di Graziano's pizza with hot spicy calabrese, taleggio and onion.

Maioria quer viajar assim que possível (e está de olho nos Açores)

Maioria quer viajar assim que possível (e está de olho nos Açores)

Um ano sem viajar não é muito tempo. Mas um ano sem poder viajar é uma eternidade – e estamos ansiosos por o voltar a fazer. Um ano após o início da pandemia em Portugal, a Time Out lançou um inquérito para tirar o pulso aos planos de viagem dos seus leitores. Os resultados expressam uma vontade clara de voltar à estrada (ou ao ar). A maioria quer sair assim que for permitido e para o mais longe possível, mesmo que isso signifique ficar em Portugal: os Açores e o Alentejo estão entre os destinos mais mencionados nas respostas.   DR Antes de mais, comecemos pelas saudades: têm sido muitas. Mais de metade das pessoas que responderam ao inquérito (54,8%) diz ter “morrido de saudades” de viajar, enquanto cerca de um terço (34,5%) afirma ter tido “bastantes” saudades de se fazer ao caminho. “Um pouco” foi a resposta da minoria (10,2%), completada por uma franja residual de pessoas que dizem não gostar de viajar (0,4%). Isto ajuda-nos a perceber os resultados seguintes: quando é que quer viajar? “Assim que me deixarem”, indica a esmagadora maioria (66%); ou “quando a maioria da população estiver vacinada”, contemporizam 27,8% dos inquiridos. Ainda assim, 6,2% dizem não querer viajar nos próximos tempos. Os destinos preferidos para a próxima viagem são os mais diversos, com a maioria (58,5%) a querer ir “para o mais longe possível” – embora uma expressiva percentagem (40%) diga que pretende ficar por Portugal. (Estas duas respostas podem ser complementares e não mutuamente exclude

Time Out Lisboa volta às edições em papel com revista premium

Time Out Lisboa volta às edições em papel com revista premium

A Time Out Lisboa vai regressar às bancas, renovada, com uma periodicidade trimestral. Um ano depois de interromper as publicações em papel, devido à crise sanitária, está na hora de voltar à rua, de voltar a apostar no futuro, na inovação e no dinamismo cultural e gastronómico da cidade. Numa altura ainda incerta, mas em que a vacinação faz regredir a pandemia, a Time Out arrisca e posiciona-se ao lado dos sectores mais afectados pela Covid-19 – as artes, a restauração, o alojamento –, para dar a conhecer o que Lisboa tem de melhor e alavancar os negócios locais. A Time Out nunca o deixou de fazer ao longo deste ano. Porém, na revista premium, com lançamento previsto para o final de Abril, promete fazê-lo com frescura, em profundidade, e com a atenção e a dedicação de sempre. A nova Time Out Lisboa terá quatro edições ao longo de 2021. A primeira vai focar-se na Lisboa tradicional. Um dos pontos de honra da Time Out em todo o mundo, neste período de instabilidade, tem sido apoiar as pequenas empresas das cidades em que está presente, através da campanha Love Local. Esse será o mote para a estreia da Time Out Lisboa neste novo modelo. As restantes edições acompanharão as estações – a segunda virá com o Verão; a terceira, com o Outono; e a quarta, com o Inverno, dando particular atenção ao Natal. As festas do final do ano deverão ser um marco na debelação definitiva da crise de saúde pública, de acordo com as expectativas das autoridades competentes, mas a Time Out crê que a r
