Bastardo - Arroz Doce como o da minha avó

Rice pudding (here dubbeb 'like my grandmother used to make') is among Portugal's most traditional desserts - although we realise there are similar dishes in other countries. Here it always comes in a beautiful plating and cinnamon on top.

Pap'Açorda - Mousse de Chocolate

Said to be Lisbon's best chocolate mousse and it is hard to argue with that. It is thick and sticky and is doled out theatrically from a giant bowl.

To make a decent cheesecake Yuko, who runs this little Japonese place, turned to Italy for one of the world's best cow's milk cheese: Parmesan. The result is incredible.
