The Portuguese have been eating bacalhau (salt cod) for centuries. It's sold dried and salted. In traditional places such as this one, the smelly, kite-shaped cod carcasses are stacked up whole, ready to be chopped up to order. Alternatively, you can buy caras (cod faces) and línguas (cod tongues). The shop also stocks canned fish and has a cheese and presunto (cured ham) counter. It now has a spin-off stall in the Mercado da Ribeira, open daily until 2am.
