Sponsored: A visit to Lana Lusa is like stepping into Lisbon…

Olá amigos, it’s time to go to Lana Lusa – the authentic Portuguese eatery in Wasl 51. Reviving the spirit of traditional neighbourhoods, the cosy venue encapsulated the heart-warming hospitality you’d find in any Portuguese town.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, guests are invited to dine on sharing dishes filled with flavour and made with love. Everything from the plates to the ingredients are brought over from Portugal, ensuring the highest level of authenticity everywhere you look.

In a world of ‘uber-healthy’, detox cafes, Lana Lusa focuses on homemade dishes from fresh, high quality and (where possible) local ingredients. The chefs can be seen hard at work through the kitchen window, pouring their passion into each plate before your eyes.

Ideal for groups, one-on-one catch ups, casual date nights, leisurely work lunches, family visits, birthday celebrations and so much more, Lana Lusa is your home away from home for any and all occasions. Whether you have time to stay a while, or only to grab a takeaway pastry and a juice, your experience will be a memorable one.

Be sure to sample the patis de bacalhau (salted cod croquettes), paired with bacalhau com natas (cod au gratin) or the cataplana de peixe, an Algarve fish stew cooked in a special copper kettle. Finish your meal with a pasteis de nata, the perfectly creamy Portuguese custard tarts, or just order a whole box, and sandwich to go, too.

Lana Lusa, Wasl 51, Jumeirah 1, weekdays 8am to midnight, Sat and Sun 9am to midnight. Tel: (0)4 380 1515. @lanalusadxb
