Although As bifanas do Afonso would be easy to miss due its size and understated storefront, you'll regret not popping in for their Bifanas that are extremely fresh and almost too good to be true for the price.

You will love the bifanas here! The best bread and the pork was amazing. It’s on a corner and you might miss it, but it’s worth hunting down!

There are many reasons to visit Lisbon: beautiful city, culture, history, architecture, nice people, great food, inexpensive. However, I would return just for the bifanas. Not only are they criminally inexpensive they are very delicious. The place is small so you may have to wait...More
