This tasca was founded in the 1940s by a Galician (as was often the case at the time in Lisbon), and is now run by David Castro, who arrived years ago from the North of Portugal. In the kitchen is his wife Fátima Castro, who makes gizzards “cinco estrelas”, as the Portuguese like to say in appreciation, all day every day.
Time Out tip: Merendinha has cozido à portuguesa as a special every Thursday, and serves it in individual portions that include everything the stew is supposed to have.
