Casa de Pasto das Carvalheiras
This restaurant wants to bring to life the idea of sharing food. Everyone likes to take a bite out of someone else's plate, either because it's different or as a sign of intimacy. To share food is to share love, and most of the food here follows that philosophy.
Right in front of the Junta de Freguesia da Sé, Casa de Pasto das Carvalheiras has come to stay and to teach the art of sharing food to the people the Braga. You can have a cocktail and dinner at the counter or in a room that's filled with colourful chairs of different shapes that fill the space with colour and life. You can have a shrimp 'moqueca', some chicken roles with mango sauce or a special version of Braga-style octopus or cod, but there's a lot more to try. If you want a more selfish option, there's hamburgers or small beef sandwiches made with sweet bread.
You can't make a reservation or pay with card, so, just show up, be it early or late. The atmosphere is both relaxed and eclectic, that feels like an urban and modern restaurant, with a touch of design. With the food, you can have cinnamon or green tea 'sangria', or wine of your choosing. The menu is very well built, but watch out, it changes with the seasons. So, if you like something in particular, enjoy it while it lasts.
Lunch follows the same concept, but with a lower cost; you can have two dishes, or one dish and dessert for 9€, two dishes and dessert for 12€, always with entrees, draft drink and coffee included. Having lunch at Casa de Pasto das Carvalheiras will always be surpising, because the lunch menus changes every week.
