Cafe Xina was formerly known as Afonso III, prior to moving to its current location beside Kiang Wu Hospital in 2015.
As far as I’m concerned, it’s still Afonso III to me, since everything is the same as before, save for the name and where it is.

I’m proud to say that everything is still top notch, just as it’s always been, especially the Crab Curry and Octopus Rice.
Just as it is in Portugal, it’s often a good idea just to stick to his daily specials, as they not only offer the best bang for your buck, but will also be insanely fresh.
Here’s a picture of Afonso from what has to be sometime in the 90’s, rocking that bike like a bad ass.
Cafe Xina still isn’t represented on Google Maps, but it’s more or less exactly at the location below.
