Taberna do Alfaiate

This spot is the place to start your tasca tour through Cartaxo.

Located inside an old carriage house in a charming nook in Cartaxo is this tavern-turned tasca. Upon entering you get a sense that this place hasn’t changed in decades: the bathroom sinks are concerted hand basins that seem to have only recently been converted to a plumming system. The food is prepared with expert care. Try the lamb cooked in a terra-cotta roof tile, or opt for the stewed beef dish — and don’t forget to bring a friend or two because it’ll be impossible for you to finish one dish all on your own. This tasca has been put in the Tasca Tour of Portugal book for a reason: it doesn’t disappoint and it feeds an army. It’s a great place to swing by for dinner, but you might want to call ahead to make sure the locals haven’t beaten you to the punch.
