On multiple occasions I wondered: what makes this place so special? The large queues always made it evident that this is a remarkable for take out barbecue grill. Finally, I decided to visit it and my only regret is that I didn’t do it earlier.
The space’s small size should not shy you away since it’s filled with wonderful things. While waiting in line, you can already see (and smell!) the wonderful grilled meats through the showcase. You can also stare at the tasty chips with oregano, the white rice and the menu.
I ordered the Mista 1 combo, with chicken, ribs and sausage and was delighted. The menu also includes options such as alheira, farinheira, meat on a skewer, regional cheeses and a lovely tomato salad. While the chicken is always ready, for the rest you might have to wait a few minutes.
Although this is a perfect place for the neighbourhood residents, you can see Frangasqueira’s popularity in Trip Advisor through the amount of tourists that come here to get food to eat at their hotel room or at the nearby garden. For days in a row! Guess they figured out there’s something special going on here ;)
