Miguel Cunha and Sako Arao had a place – also located in the Galerias Lumière – where they sold take-away meals; the place was tiny, so they couldn't have tables. They closed down that micro-restaurant and opened the slightly larger Namban Oporto Kitchen Café. The lunch menu costs €8.50 and includes soup, a vegetarian, meat or fish main course, three side dishes, onigiri (a Japanese rice ball) and flavoured water. But if you make this a daily habit, you won't get bored – the dishes keep changing. Besides, there is always a dessert of the day, including the typical Japanese anmitsu (coconut cream and strawberry jelly), blue bean paste and green tea granita.
