London, UK

Every day is a good day to go Lisboeta, Nuno Mendes’ culinary love letter to his home city, but visiting in the summer months just feels right, especially if you can grab one of the tables out front to people watch the Charlotte Street set. Nuno has created an instant classic in Lisboeta, with his pork shoulder sandwich, the bifana, a London ‘must-eat’. His ever-evolving menu of flavour-packed petiscos, Portuguese small plates, takes you from grilled cuttlefish, pig’s trotter, garlic and coriander stew to smoked and grilled sirloin with Presunto ham and coffee sauce, and everything in between.
