After a couple of years missing, Henrique Mouro is back to the Chiado with a restaurant where every dish has something in common: rice. You can't escape it, neither will you be avoiding the Portuguese cuisine that has always been the chef's speciality, although he does venture into some fusion recipes. Just order a risotto with sautéed greens, beans and fried octopus fillets, or a “cabidela” blood rice stuffed with “farinheira” sausage and you'll understand what we mean.
Time Out tips:
– Caroline type rice, whole rice, savage rice, basmati rice... All varieties have joined this party.
– For dessert, obviously, you can have a good old rice pudding.
– A kitchen with no gas in Lisbon? Such a thing exists. Everything is cooked in electrical induction stoves.
