CASA LISBOA Introduces Weekend Semi-Buffet Brunch



Casa Lisboa Portuguese Restaurant & Bar has just debuted its Weekend Semi-Buffet Brunch and it is simply a not-to-be-missed destination for your relaxing weekend brunch. Located in the LKF Tower in Central, Casa Lisboa offers a truly authentic Portuguese cuisine with a unlimited serving of one of its many signature Portuguese dishes - a whole roasted suckling pig which you can eat as much as your appetite can manage. The Portuguese "Bairrada" style marinates the suckling pig (ideally 3-4 weeks old) for a day based on an age-old recipe originated from the region of Bairrada. It takes 3 hours to geth the crispy skin roasted to perfection. The flavor is divine and the meat is succulent and tender.



Of course, that is not the only reason to consider Casa Lisboa, as there are so many other dishes that are also a must try, such as traditional bacalhau, which comes in quite a few variations: the deliciously crispy bacalhau patties, the popular and classic codfish cakes, and the robustly flavoured shredded bacalhau mixed with potato and egg.



There are many other home-style Portuguese cold appetizers to choose from the semi-buffet section, which makes it difficult to save room for the main course options. These include: a classic octopus salad with paprika & extra virgin olive oil; pig ear terrine Alentejo style; marinated mussels; and Portuguese ham with melon.



You really need to pace yourself through the buffet selection, as the main course selection really whets your appetite and poses a very difficult decision-making moment of what to choose out of the following six main course dishes (it helps when you are a large group, so everyone can sample each others, if the desire is there) : Baked Portuguese Duck Rice in old style is always the encore dish; Grilled Piri Piri Chicken; traditional Portuguese Seafood rice; Grouper with crab crust and mixed vegetables; Aletejana style Pork Loin and Clams with potato and coriander; Grilled salted Bacalhau with baked potato, Sautéed green vegetables and olive oil.



There are various selection of regional Portuguese wines at your disposal. You can also make the brunch extra special and very authentic with some well chosen 2 hour free-flow beverages with Portuguese origins (the alcohol options any way), such as Sangria, Sparkling Wine (quite superb by the way), Vinho Verde, House wines, Bellini, Superbock (Portuguese Beer) & freshly squeezed juices.


Should you still have a bit of space left to try the desserts, there is a bit of decadence to be had: pears in port wine is a traditional version of pears poached in rich and sweet Portuguese port wine (they really have the right wine for this); classic Portuguese biscuit cake; Serradura and chocolate mousse Casa Lisboa style. Once again, these are all-you-can-eat desserts, on top the all-you-can-eat cold and hot appetizer buffet.



 When you compare this brunch pricing to so many other places, it is a bargain with such quality driven produce lovingly prepared by Chef Edgar Alves, resulting in very authentic tastes that make this a stand-out. You have 23 authentic Portuguese favourites to tantalise the taste buds, this is an absolute value-for money weekend semi-buffet brunch in town which we highly recommended.
