Traditional tasca with cheap typical dishes and fresh sangria
It may not look like much, but if you’re in the mood for a lot of food at a fraction of the price asked elsewhere nearby, this spot in Cais do Sodré won’t disappoint. The menu offers traditional Portuguese fare at very friendly prices, and for this reason, it’s popular with the locals. Join nearby construction workers, restaurant owners, policemen, and off-duty street cleaners for lunch at this tiny hole-in-the-wall. You won’t hear any language spoken other than Portuguese, which is in itself the best way to judge a place. The specials of the day are cooked to perfection, the sangria is made with care, and the servers, though old, are quite quick and always professional. Worth a stop for lunch at the least.
