From “too cheap” to the price of lobster, 5 bitoques to miss the classic – Restaurants

We walk basic, don’t we? After the nails, here are the bitoques—those two dishes we order when we’re undecided, when we want something safe in an unfamiliar restaurant or just a comfort dish. And as you always know well, it’s best to have at least a few references in mind for a last-minute bitoque.

Before you don’t go to places where it’s served without eggs or potatoes, we leave a list with some of the best bitoques that you can find in Portugal.

Obviously, in addition to being good, you want to be cheap, and we also paid attention to this so that you don’t regret having gone to an Italian restaurant before to eat a pasta à la something finer than meat with egg on horseback. However, as with everything in gastronomy, even the bitoque has been reinvented and for those who dare to try new combinations, we also leave a proposal by Olivier da Costa. Ready to crack the wobbly egg and dip a loaf of bread?

A bitoque by the sea? Why not? Prego e Meio, in Ericeira, opened its doors in June 2021 and between chicken wings “à la passarinha” and grilled cheese and honey kebabs, it has already won over customers with the bitoque.

One of them was the “gastrophile in her spare time” and author of the suns.eat blog, Maria Lagariço, who gave a complete description of this bitoque: “Medium steak, well-fried and homemade, greedy sauce and salad to accompany, to keep the meal balance”.

The value? You’ll have to find out on your visit. Also available for take away.

Just by the name of the restaurant, the serving does not seem to be small, nor the quality, since it is the recent concept of businessman Olivier da Costa. At XXL, in addition to new dishes, you will find a lobster bitoque that, compared to the traditional one, only changes the protein: instead of meat, it is made with seafood. Everything else, the egg, rice and potatoes, remains.

This bitoque costs €68 (value of waiting for a meal worthy of lobster). Enjoy your meal.

Remember O Poeta, a seafood restaurant in Largo Luís de Camões, in Cascais? Now it’s Kul, but it continues to declaim the same poetry: good food, just different. It changed from fish to meat and became a steakhouse where you can find meat in the most varied ways, whether in a hamburger or on a plate, as you want the bitoque.

Kul’s bitoque is from the empty one and costs €13.50.

Another bitoque, this time at Petiscos Do Miguel, in Entroncamento, Sacavém. The delicacy of this space was discovered and shared by the well-known Instagram author Ovo Cru, who described in a simple way the dish that is not wanted with many inventions: “The egg is chicken, the fork is meat. The cow was big. potatoes were separate for logical reasons”, it can be read.

As for the price, “too cheap”.
