Taberna Rua das Flores
A place suggested by a renowned chef, who gave his stamp of approval and encouraged us to visit this place. So, what do we have to say about the Rua das Flores Tavern? The location could not be more central, it’s near the Largo do Chiado, and the line at the door only lets us guess that it is worth the wait.
The decor is reminiscent of old taverns and the menu, which is surprisingly presented to each table on a giant blackboard, displays the daily dishes/snacks. The selection refers to snacks of yesterday, genuinely Portuguese, from the north to the south of the country, covering our most typical food, but with a very simple contemporary twist.
The house wine is served in low glasses, the lemonade according to Portuguese tradition, and the snacks are always split up, after all, the Portuguese like to share!
The highlight goes to the clams, very tasty, as well as the fresh tuna in sesame, topped off with a chocolate mousse with cherry and liquor dessert, which together, makes a great combination. Never count on the same dish: dishes are made with whatever is fresh that day, and are generally guided by the chef’s taste and inspiration.
Here you can only pay in cash, so forget the credit card, just like in old Lisbon!
