Tips / Destination

Portugal’s second city is a great place to spend time, and you can get great food on a budget. Here are some of the best cheap eats in town.


Taberna Santo Antonio is always packed thanks to generous portions of traditional dishes from just €5 per plate for the daily special. If it’s too busy to get a table, you can get a spot on the waiting list and drink a beer out front while another party finishes up.


Tia Aninhas is a bit away from the center of the city, but it’s worth stopping into for the €6 menu of the day. For that price you will get soup, a main course, drink and coffee, an almost unbelievable value given the quality of the food.


A Capoeira in Foz is known for its amazing cod a la bras, only cooked once per week, and octopus rice. Other traditional dishes fill the menu, and portions are family-sized so bring some friends.


A Cozinha do Manel is a hugely popular place that has attracted a stellar list of clients, including sports stars and politicians. Despite the A-list appeal, the food is affordable, with classics such as duck rice and roast veal among the recommended dishes.

See How Recycled Paper is Made at Elephant PooPoo Paper Park

Thailand's Elephant PooPoo Paper Park is taking recycling to a whole new level. By developing a symbiotic relationship with elephants that promotes sustainability, it is producing cute and functional paper products and clothing while providing much-needed jobs for locals in Thailand's rural communities. Thailand developed a system of taking elephant waste and converting it into products that are not only practical, but also environmentally friendly.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
