The Gastronomic tradition of the Portuguese villages
Aldeia is born at the heart of Bairro Alto, in Lisbon, more precisely at number 30 of Travessa da Queimada and its references came from the diversity and richness of the flavours that have been perpetuated throughout the country, with local produce from the fields to the mountain, from the sea to rivers, which over the years has been preserved at the table of the Portuguese, especially in our villages, and inspired us to bring you a selection of products and dishes with an authentic Portuguese taste. In the Portuguese Villages the flavours are genuine, the gastronomic products are the result of very old traditions that have passed from generation to generation.
At the Aldeia, tradition and modernity join at the same table.
The menu is filled with recipes and gastronomic traditions from various Portuguese regions, bringing to the table fresh ingredients and good regional products, where for example the cheeses of Azeitão melt, or the smoked sausages and ham of northern smokers. And of course, well-chosen and always recommended wines in a logic of ‘happy marriages’ with seafood and petiscos. The origin of the ingredients, seafood, wines and snacks we serve is the essence of its authentic flavour and also its guarantee of Quality!
