Cantinho do Aziz

No-joke Mozambican cuisine made fresh every day

Rua de São Lourenço, 3-5

Daily, 12h – 23h

If you’ve never tried Mozambican food, this is the restaurant to visit. If you have, you’ll love its authenticity. The staff speaks English, but waits for you to make the first move. The space is tiny inside and you might end up next to another group that comes later, so the outside seating is best for a little more elbow room if you can get a spot. Once you’re seated, try an African beer like the Laurentina and ask for the fried yuca to start. For your main, go for the lamb chacuti with its amazingly bold sauce, or try the shrimp dish with coconut sauce that comes with delicious rice and freshly-made okra. The shrimp might be on the small side but they pack a flavorful punch. Most people order the Ikala, the chef’s signature dish with crab and prawns mixed together in coconut and peanut sauces, but we recommend trying something a little less trendy just for the hell of it. Call ahead and reserve because this place gets packed fast.
