Dona Gertrudes, 87, is the mentor of one of Lisbon's best Alentejo food restaurants. She moved to the city from the Serra D'Ossa area several years ago, thrilled Lisboners with her food, taught her son everything she knows, and he taught it to his children. Meanwhile, the restaurant also moved, but all the dishes that made its reputation came along: tope shark soup, pig's feet with coriander, tomato and meat soup or their legendary wild pigeon rice (which looks like chicken soup).
Time Out tips:
– They make several seasonal dishes, such as gazpacho with fried fish in summertime.
– In wintertime, they masterfully handle game recipes.
– The current proprietor started off on the restaurant by helping his grandmother out when he was grounded.
