My favorite little hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Coimbra was Restaurante Zé Neto
This tiny, homey place has a handful of tables and all the Portuguese standards, including cabrito (baby goat). I was pleased to see the happy owner, a grandpa kinda guy, shuffling around making sure his customers were happy.
I had the special of the day: the Bacalhau a Gomes Sa – shredded cod, fried up with onions, potatoes, eggs, and black olives. It’s not my normal lunch…but it was a lovely mix of savory stuff.
