After months of speculation and rumours, the iconic Pap'Açorda did really close down and move wholesale to a new 800-square metre venue in the Ribeira Market. Two large rooms with a kitchen between them, a cute bar and a great view of the food court and the Luís I Square park. But doubters may be put at ease: the new restaurant keeps the same chef, Manuela Brandão, the same staff, and the same soft crust pies, prawn “açorda” bread soup and delicious breaded lamb chops.
Time Out tips:
– The old venue was nice and cosy, the new one is nice and roomy.
– It has a direct link to the market's new bar, Rive-Rouge (by Manuel Reis).
– The chocolate mousse remains the same and still comes to the table in a huge bowl.
