Uma Casa Portuguesa is a fado song, made famous by the one-and only Amália Rodrigues. The lyrics talk about your typical Portuguese home, where unexpected guests are welcomed with food, wine and warmth. It talks about our hospitality and ease in sharing. It describes the charming modesty of a Portuguese home in the 50’s. And that’s what A Casa do Evaristo is all about. It’s simple food, nice hosts, traditional music and all the knick-knacks you’d find in a typical Portuguese kitchen. Just irresistible!
A Casa do Evaristo is often my choice for lunch. The location is convenient and for around € 6 you get a full meal, with bread, soup, main course and a drink. Shamefully (or not!) I usually can’t resist to add a little treat at the end, and the dessert options – also very true to Portuguese tradition – are to die for.
As the chorus goes: It’s a Portuguese home, for sure. So go ahead and enjoy the feeling.
