In the middle of so many restaurants that are just there to rip off tourists – avoid the ones with pictures of the food on the menu – Tasca Kome is one of Baixa’s best joints and a favourite for locals. The Japanese restaurant of Yuko Yamamoto, who moved to Portugal over a decade ago, goes far beyond sushi to explore traditional Japanese dishes made with the same ingredients as they always were. The lunch menu prices are particularly appealing.
With many restaurants to try from - don't fall for the tourist traps that will try to seduce you each step of the way - and many typical stores and streets to lose yourself in, both Baixa and Sé are worth a whole day (or more) of exploring.
Bring comfortable shoes and hit the streets. When the day is done, grab a seat at a bar, watch the game (whichever one is on) and you'll get why Baixa is one of the best places in Lisbon for a late afternoon drink.
