The Taberna dos Mercadores in the Ribeira is another good example of a traditional city restaurant where you can eat well and in large amounts – it is owned by the same family as the nearby Adega São Nicolau. Traditional and regional dishes dominate the menu, where you can find prawn “açorda” bread soup, “rojões” diced pork and even an unmissable “arouquesa” meat pot. For special days – and by special order only – they make cod tongue rice and roast kid goat, prepared with ingredients that proprietor António Coelho collects regularly from his home town of Resende.
