Great pork sandwich. Fast service and bustling atmosphere. A great place to get a good taste of the local food. A bit pricey for a 5/5 grade.

Nova Pombalina is a great local sandwich place tucked on a corner near the Praça de Comércio... This establishment has reasonable prices, and is quite popular with the locals. Our family only had the sandwiches and vegetable soup, which were very good. Nova Pombalina’s service...More

Wanted a loin sandwich and they only had suckling Pig. Sandwiches are preprepared on the side and it cost €4.50. My wife wasn't impressed as wanted it made fresh. Coming from Norfolk in England where thus wouldnt have made the top 10 really.

Having just arrived in Lisbon and getting our bearings we found this place recommended in the guide book for roast pork sandwiches. They were super - a great lunchtime snack.

Busy little cafe full of locals. Wide variety of different sandwiches freshly made to order. Food was good quality and very tasty, service was speedy, and the atmosphere was great. Really good value. Get here early as it fills up quickly.

Full of locals, which is always a good sign. The pace was frenetic and tables (and indeed space) were at a premium. Incredibly prompt service from the middle-aged man worked off his feet - we assumed he'd been doing it for years - who had...More

They do have suckling pork, but not sure if they cook the new one every single day. However I assume that you will get the one.
