Cantinho do Aziz is a Mozambican restaurant located in Lisbon’s Mouraria neighborhood. The restaurant has been serving innovative dishes for over 35 years at its current location.
In 2016, Cantinho do Aziz opened a second restaurant in Leeds, England, offering a Portuguese menu with some Mozambican influences. The Leeds restaurant is conveniently located in the City Centre and has caught on with the surrounding local residential and business communities.
The sensational buzz from social media and global news outlets triggered stellar reviews published by American Food Blogger, Mark Wiens’, Migrationaology: Travel Guide for Food Lovers, and most recently, Tyler Kord’s critique in Bon Appetit Magazine, “How Portugal Became the Greatest Place to Eat Right Now.” (View full article under our “Press” page.)
With great demand from U.S. diners visiting our Lisbon & Leeds restaurants and invitations from food establishments around New York City, the Cantinho do Aziz Pop-Up Experience was born during the Autumn of 2018. We plan to expand the Pop-Up eateries throughout 2019.
