The Mercado de Alvalade is one of the best food markets in Lisbon, and up on one end there’s a small, busy restaurant called Sem Palavras. It’s a traditional beer house, with fast and efficient service, paper placements, and tables that are practically on top of each other. Come by any time of day—they’re open from 10am to 1am—and order from their extensive menu of meat and fish, including traditional Portuguese dishes like farinheira (pork sausage) with scrambled eggs, clams with coriander and garlic, and any type of cod you can imagine. Portions are big, and all the seafood comes fresh from the market next door.
