As Colunas, the right place to go if you're in Amadora, has a curious blend of wild and exotic meats. There's also fish risotto and a heavenly selection of cheese and sausage appetizers. The cook is from the Minho region, so servings will be Northern-sized (e.g., large). The menu resembles a zoo: zebra, wild hog, deer, python, wild pigeon, camel, kangaroo or rabbit. Before you order, the proprietors will tell you about each animal's taste and texture. It's worth your while going to Amadora just to get to know As Colunas.
Time Out tips:
– The wine list is a house calling card.
– The cook is from the Minho region, but she makes a great Alentejo-style dogfish soup.
– Save a little room for desert – all the sweet delicacies are high-quality.
