Everyone knows the delicious sweet side of Bubó, but few know that their savoury dishes are just as good.
When the chef, Oswaldo Brito, was offered the opportunity to create the savoury menu for Bubó, he didn’t hesitate. “I knew I wanted to create something competitive, original and with a touch of haute cuisine. The desserts are really famous, so I knew my menu had to be very strong to be at the same level.”
Crispy ravioli with tuna, seaweed and mushrooms; anchovies with pickled cherries and black olive powder; mango chutney with spiced cake; garlic prawns…these are just some of the incredible new dishes on offer. They also have salads, sandwiches, croquettes and snacks that you can enjoy on their patio or take home with you.
Bubó also caters, offering popular dishes like garlic pears with streusel, crab salad, and one of the juiciest veal cheeks we’ve ever had from Porto.
“We cook side by side in our workshop – it’s fun, as there’s friendly competition between sweet and savoury to create the best dishes, but at the same time we are working together toward a common goal.”
Bubó first opened in El Born in 2005. It was an immediate success that continued to grow as other locations opened across the city. It’s no wonder that thousands of people visit Bubó daily to try all their sweet treats: chocolates, cakes, pastries, brownies, truffles…the list goes on.
It’s impossible not to enjoy Bubó from start to finish.
