Located in the Mouraria, the most international of Lisbon's neighbourhoods, its proprietors are not Vietnamese (they're Chinese) but they serve the famous noodles from Vietnam. Pho is a steamy soup with almost medicinal properties, composed of rice noodles, meat, spices, soy sprouts, parsley, onions, mint and shrimp broth. Besides pho, there are two Chinese soups (rice noodles is one of them), dumplings and ravioli. What else? You don't need anything else with such a Pho.
Time Out tips:
– The staff speaks no Portuguese, so there's a lot of gesticulating.
– The classic Chinese Tsingtao beer is available.
– There is fish sauce on the table that you can (and should) pour onto boiling soups.
