If you dislike noisy restaurants, make a U-turn. At Cantinho do Aziz, a Mozambican eatery in the Mouraria, you need to speak up to be heard. You have to accept the relaxed mood of the staff and have an open mind for their suggestions. From crab curry to chicken “muamba”, from “yuka malaku” (chicken, okra and manioc in a coconut sauce) to “makoufe” (cabbage, peanut and coconut sauce, prawns and crab legs), everything tastes good here.
Time Out tips:
– Two Mozambican beers are available and you should order them: Laurentina and 2M.
– The house hot chilli pepper is named Sacana (“bastard”) and you will feel like purchasing a jar of it.
– The lamb chacuti is inexpensive and unmissable.
