Bairro Alto / 10 €
Chicken burger with pineapple
Bank card, Cash
Calçada do Combro- right there, on the outskirts of Bairro Alto. There's a big building, a parking lot with several floors. There’s also a sign that says "Park" and tells you to go to the last floor. Follow it and you will find an escape from the big city, a tree and wood filled space, which even has some wildlife (although not real...) and above all, some ice cold Somersby.
Park is an already popular choice for after work drinks and at night but what most people don't know is that they also have food. The menu offers cheese and cold meat plates, a soup (carrot cream) and a dessert (chocolate cake) but those are not the best part. The best part is the hamburgers, of which there are 8 different options on the menu, covering everything from cow, chicken and pork to cod, tuna and veggie. My personal favorite is the chicken burger with pineapple. All of them come with perfectly crispy fries and a garlic sauce with just enough punch. As a heads up, just keep in mind the kitchen works from 13h to 15h and 20h to 23h.
As a side dish, make sure to enjoy this privileged view of beautiful Lisbon, covering everything from the nearby Santa Catarina Church to the bridge and the Cristo Rei, all the way on the other side of the river. The bar regularly hosts DJs, including the guys from Incógnico, so make sure to check the agenda on their Facebook page. Recently, they also partnered with Underdogs Art Gallery and now have several pieces of theirs and a brand new joint commission with Somersby. The chosen artist was Maria Imaginário and her re-imagination of a tree helps complete this already very cool space.
