Best Cod Pataniscas in Lisbon
Varina da Madragoa, nicknamed “the best Pataniscas in Lisbon”, and take my word for it, they are. Pataniscas are deep-fried codfish coated in a parsley, potato and onion batter and normally come with red bean rice stew or migas – fried bread and cabbage. Fish is also a good option, especially the Bacalhau (Salt cod), which comes grilled to perfection: crispy edible skin with translucent flesh next to the bone. So if you are ever close to the Ancient Art museum or if you are visiting the Madragoa Quarter this is definitely the place to go: charming, typical restaurant with honest authentic Portuguese cuisine at affordable prices for a city capital.
