A friendly, very simple place where you’re always welcomed with a smile, music and a frosty beer.Tucked away behind a small door in one of Lisbon’s oldest neighborhoods, Alfama, lives Taberna do Sal Grosso. It was probably one of the first spots in the city to present affordable, more contemporary takes on Portuguese traditional recipes and ingredients. It’s a joyful spot, great for gatherings, with an always changing menu that can feature some dishes like crispy and smoky pork belly with watercress, oranges and almonds; a delicious tuna“pica-Pau”, which is basically a mix of seared cubes of fresh tuna with garlic, pickled onions and an umami bomb of a sauce. It’s a great window into what contemporary Lisbon is: a friendly, very simple place where you’re always welcomed with a smile, music and a frosty beer.
