Chef Susana Felicidade's first job in Lisbon was at Taberna Ideal. Then she opened a new snack joint, then a new restaurant named Pharmacia, and left the Taberna. The latter got new management and a new name. It is now called Taberna da Esperança and still has a vintage look with mismatched furniture; the menu changes every week, but you will often find classics such as the “picos da matança” pork cubes and figs or the duck with savoy cabbage.
Time Out tips:
– The menu is split in four acts: tiborna breads, salads, snacks and main courses.
– Even the appetizer bread is good.
– Still one of the top dining options in Madragoa.
