Canned Fish from Lisbon (Conserveira de Lisboa)

Recently we went to Lisbon and stopped in to Conserveira de Lisboa, a well-known shop that specializes in canned sardines, tuna, cod, etc. We bought a few cans to bring home. They are delicious--but almost gone. :( Does anyone know where to, or if it's possible to, get this product in the states, preferably near NYC? Thanks!!!

  1. almcg,

    On Long Island you can try Mineola Food Market, 269 Willis Avenue, Mineola, NY (516) 746-6637. I know they have Portuguese specialty foods, including canned fish, although I'm not sure if the purveyor you mention imports to the US.

    In the City there is a great place that has authentic Spanish foods. DespaƱa, 408 Broome St, (between Centre St & Cleveland Pl), New York, NY 10013, (212) 219-5050

    1. Is this what I saw Anthony Bourdain eat in Spain? If so, let me know as well. He absolutely loved it.

      1. This was featured in Saveur magazine a couple months ago....the prices are not a joke!
