Queijaria - Cheese Bar & Shop was born in Lisbon with the goal of encouraging the marketing of these products, while promoting a love for cheese amongst consumers. I can tell you right away, it convinced me.
Queijaria has different rooms, including the Tasting Room where you can savor more than 50 types of good quality cheeses, available depending on the cheesemakers that still use the original production methods. When entering this room you will be welcomed by a member of the staff that offers you a welcome drink - White dry Porto wine.
From the menu, you can choose 4 portuguese cheeses on a tray or a cheese board with 1, 3 or 5 types of portuguese and/or international cheeses. It is normal if you feel overwhelmed with the vast list of options of cheese, don’t worry. An expert can accompany you to the room where all the cheeses are stored and suggest you the best cheeses according to your preferences. At the table, the pieces of cheese are presented on a slate board from the least to the most intense, so you can fully enjoy each one. The cheese boards are harmonized with nuts, dates and dehydrated strawberries.
Although the cheese is the king - Queijaria also sells accessories and books devoted to this delicacy - this space has also rooms dedicated to other products, such as olive oil, jams, toasts and pâte.
