Fodor's Expert Review Pap'açorda
A onetime hipster favorite in the Bairro Alto, Pap'açorda has now moved to the laid-back-cool confines of the Time Out Mercado da Ribeira in Cais do Sodré, bringing its delicious dishes and its famously glitzy chandelier along for the ride. The menu still lists cutting-edge versions of Portuguese classics—grilled sole or John Dory; breaded veal cutlets; and a famous açorda, that bread-based stew rich in seafood (the luxury version contains lobster) and flavored with garlic and cilantro. The fried whitebait with tomato açorda makes for a great starter. For dessert, scrumptious chocolate mousse is spooned with panache from a giant bowl. The wine list has been extended, and one wall is entirely taken up with wine bottles.
