The Portuguese seem to like Thailand more than Thailand likes the Portuguese. After all, it remains difficult to find a good restaurant of its kind in Lisbon. This opened in Alvalade two years ago and from the ethnicity to the kitchen, everything gets you on a Lufthansa flight bound for Bangkok. Be braver than the common of mortals in choice and go beyond pad thai, in dishes like fish cakes with spices, tom yan goong soup and roasted duck with red curry.
Perfect for: adapting the palate before embarking for Thailand.
Must try: the sagu, a tapioca dessert in coconut milk and sliced mango.
