Under $100 / Europe

The Portuguese capital is a great spot for budget travelers and you can see a lot for just $100. Here’s how to do it.

 

Try the breakfast at Naked and you will be getting unprocessed, natural food, not a naturist café. Try the homemade jam on gluten-free toast, or the granola and fruit bowls ($7).

 

After breakfast, walk around some of the historic sites such as the Tower of Belem, the Castelo de San Jorge and the Praca do Comercio, where you’ll be able to grab a coffee at one of the many little cafés.

 

When you get hungry, check out O Trigueirinho for a cheap and filling lunch. Try one of the Portuguese classics, like feijoada trasmontana, and sample a local beer to boot. The whole meal will cost you less than $10.

 

In the afternoon, take a look around the Museu do Fado, where you can learn about Portugal’s most famous traditional musical style, fado. The exhibitions are great and it’s an immersive experience everyone can enjoy ($6).

 

For dinner, try Adega do Saloio. This is one for meat lovers as the restaurant specializes in grilled meats, with the huge beef skewers going down particularly well among locals. Get a bottle of Portuguese red wine and settle in for the evening as the portions are huge ($20).

Taking It Back to Basics at Ghent’s Gruut Brewery

Breweries are everywhere today and, while many craft and microbreweries specialize in particular styles of beer, few are quite as specialized as Ghent Gruut Brewery in Ghent, Belgium. Here, the current craze for hop-heavy India Pale Ales is entirely eschewed as absolutely no hops at all are used in the brewing process. Before you clamor to claim this can’t be beer at all as everyone knows the four ingredients of beer are grain, water, yeast, and hops, consider hops weren’t actually added to beer until the 13th century. Before then, all beers were flavored with herbs and spices, or gruut, as the French population of medieval Ghent called them.
