Pork dishes are the specialty here. There is also fish. It's looks to be batter fried. The fish was very good and the pork did not disappoint. Pretty big portion size with soup and coleslaw type salad and rice. I had the octopus rice - very good. Come hungry or be prepared to leave food on the plate.
