Brasão is a proper Porto success story. It’s the ‘son’ of O Paparico in Areosa, which has got to be a good thing. It brings a degree of quality to snacks, offering hardcore ‘francesinha’ sandwiches (plus lighter options) as well as rump or sirloin steaks. The menu is simple and hearty, and they cater brilliantly for larger groups (book ahead). Take your meat mates along. ‘Meat’ is an anagram of ‘mate’, after all.
Time Out tips:
Try the special Brasão by Sovina beer.
Start with fried onion in black garlic mayo, and go for the hazelnut chocolate mousse for dessert.
