Floresta do Salitre - Sala de Refeições

When the clock strikes at one o'clock, the Floresta do Salitre’s room is bursting at the seams - read: if you want a table for lunch, get there a few minutes early. As the minutes progress, Mr. Joaquim distributes the homemade soups, announcing the dishes of the day, cracking jokes, bringing fish on the grill, bitoques and opening good bottles of wine (here, there’s wine and knowledge on the subject). In the end, just go past Mrs. Rosa, pay the bill and hate yourself for not having gone to the counter to peek at the desserts earlier.

Perfect for: eating good ammounts of great food, at a cheap price, at Avenida da Liberdade.

Must try: the suckling pig entremeada (pork belly), accompanied by homemade potato chips (on Fridays).

Comida típica portuguesa, bem confeccionada, dos jaquinzinhos às gambas à guilho. A Floresta do Salitre é um clássico dos almoços para quem trabalha na zona da Avenida da Liberdade. E pode sempre regar o almoço com um dos vinhos da generosa garrafeira.
