Hit by a sudden wave of saudade? Relive your weekend in Lisbon in this small épicerie-café, the adjoining second location of Comme à Lisbonne, where the Tricana, Minerva or Minor canned goods get opened up: sardine roe, tuna belly, smoked octopus…. Sold to go or eaten in house with a salad, olives and bread (€10.90 to €22.90 a portion). The small plates made by the young chef Samuel Oliveira Chan are just as recommendable: a soup of the day (tomato and basil velouté, for example) served with a gourmet salad (€13.90); traditional tostas (toasted sandwiches filled with goat cheese, green apples, honey and walnuts for the Ganda Cabra, €11.90) served with mixed greens on the side; and a copious Zé Peixe, made with smoked sardine fillets, roasted tomatoes, cheese and red onions. To drink, there’s Muralhas Adega, a Vinho Verde from Monçao (€4.50 a glass) or Sangres Mini beer (€3.50). And for connoisseurs: the best pastéis de nata in the capital, served warm from noon to 6:30pm, with cinnamon sprinkled on top in the traditional way (€3 each). Lunch set menu €13.90, platters €12-14. // T.M.
