Tico Tico in Alvalade is one of the most traditional beer, meat, and seafood restaurants in the city, and it’s slightly off the tourist radar. The extensive menu is mostly filled with home-cooked classics, like meat croquettes that are largely considered some of the best in the city, lamprey rice, polvo à lagareiro (boiled octopus), and Portuguese feijoada. Grab a beer and some bulhão pato clams to share, and if you don’t get it on your first visit, come back and try their prego sandwich, which is also considered to be one of the best in town.
