We began our meal with "sopa de habas", a soup made with something very similar to our lima beans. At first taste it seemed a bit salty, although its taste grew on us.
For his main course, Alejandro ordered "bife a café", a dish that is perhaps more Brazilian than Portuguese, or perhaps an invention of the chef. Alejandro had it the last time we were here, and he really liked it. It is a beef steak covered in a sauce made with coffee.
I had a more traditional dish... "bacalau com natas". "Bacalau" ("bacalao" in Spanish) is salted codfish, and is a mainstay of Iberian cuisine. This was a casserole with shredded codfish in a rich béchamel sauce, It was delicious and quite filling. The next time I go there, I will definitely sample another one of the many "bacalau" dishes on the menu.
I highly recommend "Lusitano" in Mexico City when you want a break from Mexican cuisine!
