Sad to say that takeouts these days are McDonald's. :-)

There are plenty of low cost restaurants and cafés in all areas except perhaps the obvious tourist spots. Even there you have to look far. In comparison to Canada, most things are low cost.

By outfood do you mean food that is sold in roulottes and so on? That exists in Lisboa but only at night, for those that go out till late hours. The tipical are "bifanas" (a steak on bread). But every "pastelaria" (pastry shop) at lunch will have a soup and savory things like small pies that are cheap. Besides this most of the restaurants will have a "menu do dia" including soup, main, dessert and coffee that will cost between 7,5 and 10€, sometimes they also include a soft drink.

There are eateries all over the city. Look for a sign "comida para fora" (take away). It's economic. Otherwise the take-away counter from supermarket Pingo Doce has daily fresh meals.

CityGourmet is mainly a delivery service at home and in the office, the take away is at Telheiras (far from the city center).
