Pigmeu - Sala
Fotografia: Ana Luzia

Pigmeu is based on the hashtag #detudoumporco – a Portuguese pun that is another way of saying nose-to-tail eating. Only pork-based dishes are served. Every part of the pig is used – even the testicles, sometimes – and served in salads, sandwiches or plates. There is a suckling pig slowly cooked for 12 hours, some fine pork cheeks, pork tails with sweet-and-sour sauce, and a fine pork neck sandwich with the meat well-shredded.

Time Out tips:

– Usually full on weekends.

– Do you like counters? Pigmeu has one of the city's best.

– There is pork for desert too, in the Abade Priscos pudding.
