The dishes to be highlighted are the codfish with bread, octopus in the oven, seafood rice, Francesinha (a sandwich from the city of Porto, consisting of sausage, fresh sausage, ham, cold meats and beef steak, covered with cheese later melted; it is garnished with a tomato, beer and piri-piri sauce and can be served with French fries as a side dish) and the Tripas à Moda do Porto. There is a bet on confection, offering dishes that are cooked in the moment and with high quality products, at competitive prices, but not only.

Maus Hábitos is one of the most important places in the cultural environment of the city. It is a multi-valued cultural intervention space that does not fit into one category. Thanks to its active artistic programming, you can, for example, attend concerts and plays or attend exhibitions. But it’s also the perfect place to have a drink in the evening, a night out or a meal. Maus Hábitos is defined, in its words, as “cultural producer, with an artistic awareness of intervention, producing and presenting artistic programs that act on the contemporary condition of culture. It is rather an open, urban, bastard and emblematic space of the city. ”
