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.
