There's no name at the door; to find this authentic Chinese canteen, look for 7 Calçada da Mouraria (use “CM7” as a mnemonic). Inside, a bare dining room with a counter at the end where you will have to go and point (that's the proper procedure) towards the desired ingredients. These will be put in a wok, where they will gain a scent of garlic, ginger and pepper. Plus: they have excellent noodle soups (both with fish or meat), served in boiling-hot aromatic broths.

Time Out tips:

– The TV set is always tuned to Chinese channels.

– Were you taught not to audibly slurp your soup? Forget about it. Here you can.

– Try the fried rib, the purple eggplant and the pork bellies.

A great place for authentic food. Don't be mislead by the simple look of the place. The food is delicious and you can choose directly from the balcony of fresh produce what you want to order. Then, they cook it and it comes out smelling delicious with scents of ginger. The mushrooms and eggplant are the best, for sure.
