Fodor's Expert Review Santa Isabel

$ Abrantes Portuguese

In this warren of stone-flagged rooms, authentic regional dishes are served with flair to well-heeled locals. Specialties include churrasquinho de porco preto com migas de alheira de caça (grilled meats from the acorn-fed Iberian black pig, served with a bread-crumb-and-garlic-sausage mixture flavored with game sausage) and enguias fritas com açorda de ovas (fried eels with fish-roe bread soup). Braver diners might try cabidela de galo (chicken cooked in blood).
