Time Out spread

at the Time Out Market / Mercado da Ribeirain in Lisbon

Elsa and Ryo spent 5 days in Lisbon and here we summarise our food adventures with you.

This post will focus on the food we had at the Time Out Mercado da Ribeirain, a huge market of which one half is the sale of fresh fruit, vegetables and meat and the other half, a fancy food hall which serves alcohol. This review will focus on the latter. Most stalls have a proper restaurant outside the market area.

Elsa and Ryo were recommended the Time Out market by our Airbnb host, so on the first evening of our arrival we walked there to see what it was like.

brunch buffet at Le Petit Baïona in Paris

Elsa and Ryo spent 4 and a half days in Paris and had many food adventures. This one is focused on a Basque place we found.

This is a new branch of Al Dabké in the Marais district. Their main restaurant is in the suburb of Paris, Ivry-sur-Seine.

Aux Délices de Paris – our ‘Local’ Bakery

ElsaRyo and Elsa’s sister arrived in Paris and were lucky to find this bakery on their first evening arriving in Paris! The bakery was fairly close to where they were staying and in total they went three times, each time loaded with treats which lasted at least a couple of days and of course on the day they were flying back to the UK, they bought goodies for family/friends.
