Street food, grocery, pastry, and even home decor store: what are the must-visit spots for an authentic and cool atmosphere like Lisbon, Porto, or Faro? Our shortlist of the best Portuguese addresses in Paris.


For super generous sandwiches

Sandwiches from Papo

Have you heard of "papo seco"? This soft, popular Portuguese
bread can be discovered at Papo, a Portuguese street food restaurant located near Bastille. Its added value? 100% homemade sandwiches, from bun to sauce, with 4 signature recipes: cod fritters (a family recipe), marinated chicken with cornflake breadcrumbs, veggie with green beans (a reinterpreted feijoada without meat), or marinated and slow-cooked pork shoulder for 12 hours (€11, menu €16). All seasoned with Savora (Portuguese mustard!), piri piri ketchup, and homemade pickles, topped with Portuguese cheese, to enjoy on the spot or take away.

Papo, 217 rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine, Paris 11th. Open Tuesday to Sunday for lunch and dinner, and continuously on weekends from 12pm to 10pm.
