Good local food
I read in TripAdvisor that this restaurant had the best “Sopa de Cação” of Arraiolos. I cannot make any comparison (this was my first time eating in Arraiolos), but from now on you may read here that it has one of the best “Sopas de Cação” in the world.
“Dogfish soup” is one of the most traditional and delicious recipes of Alentejo, copied here and there outside the region, but nowhere else they achieve the balance of tastes and smells of the original Alentejo.
The soup was excellent and the grilled meat was also perfect.
The meat came with “migas”, another local tradition that I don’t appreciate much (it’s heavy) but this time it was lighter and softer than usual. Very good too.
The “house wine” was good, only the desert staying far behind the general meal.
The room is cozy and good looking (always with lines at the door, it was a festive day), and the service, trying to be efficient, couldn’t disguise the traditional pace of Alentejo.
The price was moderated.
