What a lovely place to eat! Casa dos Passarinhos, which in English means Home of the little birds, is an honest neighborhood restaurant specialized in traditional and good Portuguese cuisine. Meat and seafood are their speciality. Casa dos Passarinhos has a long list of main dishes that never leave me hungry.
Give me their meat on the stone, where you literally cook a delicious steak on a hot steamed volcanic stone. First, a delicious barbecue, second, a very interesting experience!
Or give me their delicious and my all time favourite Shrimp “Açorda”, which is a traditional dish from the Alentejo region, composed of mashed bread with garlic, coriander, olive oil, water, salt and eggs. Another interesting experience, since they mix the eggs in front of you. I have tried Açordas all over Portugal, and none is better than the one this restaurant cooks.
And finally give me their white peak dessert (Monte Branco), which is a delicious mousse done with Oreo cookies and cream.
Another thing I love about this place is that it’s extremely inexpensive. Even a good bottle of wine only costs about € 6. A bargain!
