Welcome back to Travel, Eat, Repeat: Eater’s new series produced, edited, and hosted by filmmaker and vlogger Iz Harris. The Harris family is continuing their tour of Portugal’s coast and making the 45 minute drive from Lisbon to a town called Sintra — a resort town in the foothills of Portugal’s Sintra Mountains. While once a haven for the royals, Sintra is now a big tourist destination.
Attracting crowds for it numerous palaces and castles, Harris and her family are visiting them all while making a few food stops along the way. One of their stops is Tascantiga — a restaurant at the base of the mountain known for its expert small plates (called petiscos) like octopus salad, beef cheek, cod croquettes, and garlic shrimp. The meal fuels the family’s last stop: Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of mainland Portugal and continental Europe.
