Boi-Cavalo
Fotografia: Arlindo Camacho

In the middle of quaint Alfama, there is a restaurant where no fado is heard – you might even hear some indie rock – and neither fish nor meat is grilled, unless chef Hugo Brito feels like adding it to the week's menu. Boi-Cavalo is sort of the wild child that stands out from so many similar neighbourhood kids. It is a lab for experiments with unusual Portuguese products, for Asian and other international influences, all devised by a former design student that luckily found his true calling in the kitchen.

Time Out tips:

– The venue used to be a butcher's shop – the old fridges are still there.

– The menu is short, creative and renewed on a weekly basis.

– The chef had a pho pop up in Autumn, and may have further plans in that vein.
