Tasca Kome

Japanese in Baixa & Rossio

This blink-and-you'll-miss-it Japanese tasca is one of Lisbon's few turning out authentic cuisine from the Land of the Rising Sun. The menu doesn't overwhelm with options; instead, there's exquisite sushi, tonkatsu (breaded pork cutlets), aji tataki (horse mackerel with ginger and chives), nasu dengaku (fried eggplant with miso) and daily-changing specials that bridge cultures (pork stew with daikon, for example).

It's all nicely washed down with sake or mugi-cha (roasted barley tea). The €11.50 lunch specials are perfect little deals.
