Fodor's Expert Review Adiafa

$ Santarem Portuguese

Near the town's bullring, this typical Ribatejo restaurant is decked out with bullfighting memorabilia. The ensopado de borrego (lamb stew) is renowned, as is the mangusto com bacalhau assado (a garlickly bread-and-cabbage soup accompanying roasted codfish with fresh herbs). For dessert, ask for the celestes Santa Clara (almond cakes) or arrepiados de Almoster (almond meringues)—among many local sweets invented by medieval monks and nuns.
