If you're exploring Lisbon's Alcântara district and find yourself in the LX Factory complex, seek out this delightful little tavern if a quick wholesome belly filler is required. Mind you, you'll be forgiven for thinking you've stumbled into the late 1960s and somebody's front room – the décor is seriously vintage, grammar school canteen-ish even, with odd chairs and tables spread over a wooden floor between walls festooned with shelves of dog-eared books, old ceramic plates and antique commercial signage. As for the food, it's homemade and yummy and nods towards traditional Portuguese cookbook recipes. On warm days setting extends to an outside terrace, but beware the resident pigeons home in on anybody willing to part with a few crumbs.
