A Petisqueira

Portuguese in Taipa

‘The Snackery’ is an amicable place with myriad Portuguese choices. Between hanging plastic grapes and old-fashioned Chinese floor tiles, customers dine with relish on squid salad, bacalhau (cod) five ways, and homemade queijo frescal da casa (cheese), washed down with a jar of white sangria. The restaurant is set in an obscure alley but recognisable by its blue-and-white awning. Reservation advised.
