As an alternative to the usual selection of international dishes, you’ll find that the gastronomic delights of the Estoril Coast will definitely be to your liking.
Try sweets: Travesseiros, the famous Queijadas de Sintra, Fofos de Belas, Areias de Cascais or Trouxas de Malveira. Indeed, Portuguese egg-based confectionary is unique not just in Europe but probably in the entire world.
As for wine, the Estoril Coast produces very small quantities of its own fine wines in Carcavelos and Colares, a rare pleasure that you might have the opportunity to try.
