A Baiuca

20 Rua de São Miguel
Lisbon , Portugal http://www.fadovadioabaiuca.com
351-21-886-7284

A Baiuca is tucked down the cobblestone Rua de Sao Miquel in Alfama. Bottles line the shelves, portraits of singers and vibrant, ceramic fish cover the tiled walls, and strings of light twinkle. There are only five long communal tables here, but people come every Thursday through Monday night to enjoy the fado vadio - amateur fado, where anyone is invited to jump and sing, which may even include the waitress or cook. The house specialities include lombos de Bacalhau (cod), tamboril a Baiuca (monkfish), and ensopada de borrego (lamb stew).
