We have devoted many pages at Portugal Confidential to the amazing products made in Portugal, and enjoyed by so many native Portuguese and visitors to the country. It’s hard to beat O Melhor Bolo de Chocolate do Mundo, Santini Ice Cream and Bolo Rei from Garrett de Estoril. Yet, if you’re looking for something a little different, say something more North American, perhaps you want to step inside one of the Liberty American Stores in Lisbon, Porto and the Azores.
