Suggested during the weekends
In a quiet street of Lisbon, an incredible place awaits us: small and cosy, a luso-brazilian mix of pleasant people. Fumeiro is ideal for a meal with friends and it lives up to his name: all the dishes have at least one smoked element.
Upon arrival, enjoy the appetizers (bread, yellow cheese from Beira Baixa, olives) while you choose the main dish. There are plenty of great things to choose from which include scents as distinct as smoked salmon with prince herb or smoked chicken with champagne tea.
If you are still undecided, I’ll recommend two: the delicious bull’s rib sandwich or the divine smoked entrecôte - you can only find it on a wednesdays, the meat is so tender that it breaks away from the bone! Each one of these goes well with the granny potatoes. To end the night perfectly you should try the cup of strawberries with chocolate cake. It is like a petit gâteaux filled with strawberries and it has a spicy kick.
If you are making plans for the weekend, usually there are surprises: every Sunday, there is a guest cook and every second Sunday of the month there are two complete brunches for the same price - 12€. The hard part is choosing between the European brunch (cheeses, toasts, sausages) and the American (eggs, cereals, pancakes).
For the football lovers, there are plans for a big screen to see the world cup as well as traditional dishes of every country that plays against Portugal or Brasil.
