This is definitely not the type of restaurante I go to. Nop, not at all. Specially because their signature dish is the typical -- meat packed -- Francesinha (or little french girl in English).
You don't what this is? Well it's a meat sandwich -- yep, with beef, sausage, ham and whatever cold cuts you can think of -- covered in cheese, and drenched in velvety seafood and beer spicy sauce, served with a ton of fries. Sounds like something that came out of Epic Meal Time, right? I know, but it's a typical dish from one of the most beautiful Portuguese cities -- and the city were I was born -- Porto.
This restaurant is not in that awesome city, but in our county's capital, Lisbon, in Santos -- closer to the river. It has a very nice cozy atmosphere, although it is very full all the time. This was not the first time I tried to go there. And the other two times I tried, it had a huge line at the door. But this time we actually waited. If you want to go, I advise you to call and book a table to avoid having to wait. The prices range from 7€ to 13€, if I'm not mistaken. It's not expensive, specially for the amount of food you get.
I had the "Special" Francesinha and it was awesome. It was definitely way to much food for me -- I left half of it on the plate, literally. But it was very very good. I specially enjoyed the sauce. It was very flavorful, with just the right amount of heat, and very smooth. They also bring to the table some more of the sauce, as well as spicier sauce in case you want some.
