As we were heading to the old town Susana pointed out Mercado da Ribeira, also known as the Time Out Market, in Lisbon. This is a new venture with a farmer’s market on the right and a massive food hall with various take-away restaurants lining the walls. I asked if we could stop for a look; as these sorts of places can either be a tourist trap or a real find. (Anthony Bourdain is developing a somewhat similar, though more diverse, concept in New York.). Susana said we could pop in for a look, or if we wanted to eat there we could. Well, the food hall was interesting, but not for me.
