Beautiful scenery and food in Lisbon

After the class, I enjoyed a bit of sightseeing and local food in Lisbon.
One of Portuguese friends kindly took me around the town.

Beautiful blue and red contrast.

Lisbon is quite hilly, sometimes I am surprised its steep narrow streets, but it is beautiful.

Good food in Lisbon. As it is so close to the sea, fresh seafoods are available. Great sunlight makes fruit and vegetable very ripe and sweet.

Tempura, now we feel like Japanese food, but it comes from Portugal.

Squid ink past, it is very colorful.

I am just obsessed with fresh orange juice sold everywhere. It is so sweet and costs less than one euro.

I am impressed with this natural gas mineral water called ‘Pedras’. Portuguese are very proud of this water. Yes, it is indeed good taste.

There are many sweets in Portugal, too. Japanese popular sweet called ‘Kasutera’ is also originally made from Portuguese ‘Pão de lós’ .

Of course. Famous sweet, Pastel de Nata.

I enjoyed my stay in Lisbon. I will definitely come back again.
