The pinnacle of honest Portuguese cuisine in Lisbon
Outside of the touristic centre of Lisbon, Tasquinha do Lagarto, is pinnacle of honest Portuguese cuisine within a capital full of “fashionable” insipid food concepts.
The lack of any international notoriety does not seem to bother clients who are even thankful that they can enjoy the place just for themselves. One of the menu highlights is roasted veal flank with roast potatoes and broccoli at 13 Euros.The other is the grouper rice for 10 euros. Ridiculously cheap right!
Needless to say that the portions are big enough to feed a family of Norwegians but are just enough for the Portuguese hunger. The owners come from the North of Portugal, so a very warm welcome and a chilled bowl of “green red” wine are guaranteed.
