written by Gabriella Opaz | 21st September 2016

Chadner Navarro recently published a fantastic article in Bloomberg highlighting why Porto is surpassing Paris as “the” shopping capital of Europe. There’s a good reason for it.

5 Must Visit Wine Shops in Lisbon

written by Catherine Fisher | 31st May 2016

Several years ago, I would frequently visit a delightful independent wine shop, sandwiched between a bakery and a cheese store, during my evening commute from university.

Bolhao is the city’s traditional open market, a once vibrant place that is now in desperate need of updated regulations and repair. But what it certainly doesn’t lack at all are charismatic characters. I spent a day...

Supermarket Diaries: You had me at Rabbit Legs

As she shuffles between the U.S. and Portugal, we’ll be bringing you her discoveries in “Supermarket Diaries.” When I lived in Connecticut, I found myself in an argument with the butcher at the local supermarket – a risky move when his left hand held...

Conservas de Peixe: The Tasty but Discernible Truth Behind Canned Fish in Portugal

written by Andrea Smith | 20th July 2013

Barcelona Wine Shops: A Comprehensive Guide to Find your Ideal Spanish Wine

written by Sam Zucker | 15th July 2013

Every wine-producing country has its own pride and tradition and Spain is no different. In fact, a well stocked bodega here in Barcelona is often as overwhelming as it is inspiring, and the enterprise of picking a wine often becomes more challenging than merely selecting a price bracket.
