The Restaurant at Museu do Pão is a veritable centre of gastronomic research, where ancient—and noble—traditional Portuguese flavours are rediscovered.
bread as inspiration
Endless delicacies served at the table of the Restaurant at Museu do Pão invite you to share and revisit the memories of flavours from the past. Here, we bring back traditional recipes from our cuisine through a menu presented in bread dough, rich with authentic dishes, many of them starring bread as the main ingredient.
the peak of
traditional portuguese cuisine
The meal preamble welcomes you with battered runner beans, codfish patties, fava beans with smoked ham, or a selection of sausages, from an endless array of entrées. Then, a climax of traditional cooking, offering a choice of meat or fish every day from a vast selection: flaked codfish, confit codfish, “lagareiro”-style octopus, monkfish rice, lamb “açorda”, roast boar with breadcrumb, oven-roasted PDO lamb, tender cuts of black pork, and black pork cheeks—among other delicacies—set the stage for the third act. In the sweet world of desserts, enjoy a legendary rice pudding, chocolate mousse, custard cream, regional cornmeal pudding, the very Portuguese egg pudding, bread pudding (of course), orange torte, charlotte, coconut tart, pears in wine, and, for those who enjoy a sharper flavour, Serra da Estrela PDO cheese from Quinta da Lagoa.
