Old Ladies «As Velhas» from the countryside settled here in 1925 to cook homemade meals. The clients were attended only by waitresses who served stewed dishes, in the pan.
Those days the street looked like a village, where peasants of the surroundings sold vegetables and fruits while their traction donkeys were bent over its own straw bundle.
With time, the neighborhood becomes the center of theaters, games and popular fairs, especially in the near Parque Mayer, attracting the bohemians and revelers.
In the same family for nearly four decades, As
Velhas Restaurant continue serving timeless recipes to the lovers of portuguese
cuisine, in honor of the Old Ladies.
