The walls are decorated with big paintings of South American native Indians. Salvador Almeida and his father, Nuno, decided to bring El Gordo to Lisbon after over 10 years of managing the same restaurant in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It opened this year in Rua do Alecrim. Salvador decided to keep the previous restaurant’s grill to cook chicken by the window and hired a few cooks who are familiar with Brazilian food. The menu includes the famous Brazilian feijoada, with farofa, rice, cabbage and orange, and other recipes that chef Cláudio Silam brings to life. There are also dishes from Argentina, Uruguai and Peru, thanks to the travelling he did throughout the continent while living in Rio.
