For a few years, mister Lu had a clandestine restaurant in the Mouraria. In 2015, he traded his apartment for a dining room in Arroios, with a huge window facing the street, and hanged on his walls an old award: a board with his picture and the inscription “Award-winning chef with 35 years of experience”. The cuisine remains almost the same, with Sichuan classics and plenty of Shandong (Northeast China) influences, among which the spicy pork, the shrimp with peanuts, the frog legs and the sweet-and-sour fish.
Time Out tips:
– A good place to order fried “chau chau” rice, here served with little more than cabbage.
– Three spiciness categories: light, medium and super.
– Try the small spit roasts with meat, shellfish or legumes. They're called chuang.
