A sui generis restaurant, in a sui generis location, specialized in a single dish: Bairrada-style roast suckling pig. What makes it sui generis? There are two places for dining – a small one next the wood stoves where the suckling pigs are roasted (if you ask, they'll show them to you) and the outdoors tables overlooking the railway, right behind the Oriente train station. It has a well-earned reputation for the care it puts into its product. The suckling pig will come to the table with a crispy skin, a spicy sauce and the traditional round fried potatoes.
Time Out tips:
– If you really love suckling pig, they have take-out, if you order at least one day in advance.
– If you really don't, they also serve “lagareiro”-style codfish, roast lamb and lamb stew, but you must order in advance.
– Each serving is delicious and inexpensive (€12).
