4 – Good Bao
Although Boa Bao’s restaurant space is large – and very beautiful, by the way – not easy to get a table at the busiest time for lunch or dinner. Consequently, our advice is to go 30-40 minutes before “rush hour”.
Serving traditional dishes from Thailand, Vietnam, Camoji, Japan, China and, of course, Korea, no wonder everyone wants to try delicacies from Boa Bao.
And since we are talking about Asian cuisine, we advise noodles sweet potato fries or bulgogi salmon marinated in Korean pear juice with Asian vegetables.
Another advantage of this restaurant is that you can enjoy huge terrace, in the heart of Chiado.
