There are said to be 365 variations of the national fish dish, bacalhau. Whether it be steamed, sautéd, salted or or simmered, you are guaranteed to find bacalhau on the menu in nearly every Lisbon restaurant.
If you're not keen on cod however don't worry; Lisbon offers plenty of international cuisine, to suit all tastes. Try for example Picanha, a famous meat dish from Brazil. Grilled sardines and mackerel are also popular, just like Caldeirada, a stew of mixed fish. Another favourite is cozido à portuguesa, a vegetable stew made with different meat, mainly pork.
