Alentejo-style chickpea “cozido”, tomato soup with grouper and poached eggs, asparagus crumbs with ribs, lamb stew... This page could be just a list of O Magano's Alentejo specialities – and reading it would be like getting a bellyful of joy. Halfway through the list, the roast game partridge with fried bread or the aged beef chuletón should be enough to make your stomach rumble; when you got to the cod “açorda” bread soup with eggs or the “farinheira” sausage with fried eggs, you'd be hailing a cab to get to Campo de Ourique.
Time Out tips:
– In a district full of modern restaurants, O Magano sticks to the basics.
– They have a great wine list, well stocked with Alentejo and Douro wines.
– They serve big portions, so a lunchtime visit will afford you more time to digest them.
