The prices at Restaurante O Caldo will be the real catch of the day. You and your entire family can eat here for next to nothing. It is a very small restaurant and a booking for dinner service is imperative. Tasca do Chico comes highly rates as one of the best dining experiences available in Lisbon, and for good reason.
It can be absolute havoc to try and get a table, particularly after pm. My recommendation is to come early, even if you just sit and drink for a while before beginning your dining experience.
The caldo verde at Tasca do Chiado is something travelers from all over come to try. It is served in the traditional way accompanied by bread, as well as with a giblet sauce for dipping.

And what a delicious looking soup! We always go into soup detox mode after the holidays, and we whip up huge batches of low-fat soups…this one definitely need to go on the list for this year!
I love the addition of the bit of smoked sausage for flavor. We do the same, David. So nice to have delicious but light meals to recoup after the holidays.
Portugal sounds lile a very nice country. So simple yet heart and delicious — well done! Oh my goodness!!! Greens and sausage are a perfect combo in my opinion. This soup looks absolutely wonderful, and I love its simplicity. I see that this is a post you had from earlier — it was new to me so thanks for sharing again!
