If it's a Monday, head on down to Rápido for their Spanish-style cod. If you're reading this on a Wednesday, book a table and order a “cozido”. This restaurant, next to the São Bento railway station, does everything according to tradition, and that earned it many regular patrons over the years. Little is known of its recipes, except that the owner himself picks the ingredients – including those of a famous oven-roasted octopus, served by special order only. Anyway, do save room for dessert.
