Address: Av. Praia da Vitória 50A, 1050-184 Lisboa, Portugal
Lisbon is one of my favorite cities in the world, and a big reason why is the food. A personal favorite restaurant of mine is called BYF Steakhouse, which is a restaurant that I found because it was next to my hotel.
Although BYF is a steakhouse, it is not priced like traditional ones. Most dishes range between $15-25, even though they taste like dishes that would cost much more. If you ever have the chance to go, the Iberian Pork Loin is an incredible dish, and it is only $15 for 200 g. Iberian Pork Loin tastes like a really good version of pork belly, and the way it is prepared at the restaurant is even better (they have a variety of flavored salts, and you can choose which one you want to season your meat with).
Some aspects of the restaurants may seem a bit gimmicky at first; they offer you the option to choose what type of knife you want to use (they have different handles and blades), as well as the different salts option mentioned above. However, I thought they were cool additions, and they helped to enhance the meal.
The restaurant does get busy though, as it has relatively limited seating. When I went, I was able to get in for lunch, but not able to get in for dinner; I believe that you can make reservations through The Fork app, so check that out if you are ever in the area!
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
