Casa Bota Feijão

Top choice portuguese in Parque das Nações

Don't be fooled by the nondescript decor and railroad-track views – when a tucked-away place is this crowded with locals at lunchtime midweek, it must be doing something right. Everyone's here for one thing and one thing only: Bairrada-style leitão – suckling pig spit-roasted on an open fire until juicy and meltingly tender, doused in a beautiful, peppery garlic sauce.

You can take home the whole hog on Saturdays for €125!
