Next door to The Lisboans and Prado Restaurante you will find Prado Mercearia, a grocery store in Lisbon celebrating the best of Portugal.
If you travel to bring back good souvenirs, then you need to visit Prado Mercearia in Baixa. Ark Studio designed the grocery store and is also behind Prado Restaurante. First, you will notice the beautiful interior with lots of green, wooden furniture and of course beautiful tiles on the floor. The way they present the herbs, olive oils and wooden chopping boards is stunning.
The idea behind Prado Mercearia is to sell local products to both the neighborhood residents as tourists. They sell everything from fruit to jam and from herbs to canned anchovies. As I stayed in one of the apartments of The Lisboans I also bought a sandwich and a healthy juice there to eat it upstairs for lunch one day.
