The chef Hugo Brito has a taste for disruption. When all his peers were opening restaurants in all the fashionable neighborhoods, he trotted through Alfama on top of his Boi-Cavalo (which would translate to Ox-Horse); when everyone bet on tasting menus at high prices, he chose to make them for €35 and run them every week. Here there are no two equal weeks, there are no star dishes, there is, rather, a laboratory of experiences in a national-based cuisine, which appeals to the Portuguese memory, but can travel to other latitudes.

Perfect for: dining in Alfama without having to be quiet every 20 minutes.
Must try: the full menu that varies every week.
