Taste of France

A restaurant I absolutely loved in Lisbon is Bico do Sapato.


Beautiful and thanks so much for all you share

Love Jeanne


My husband would love that chocolate dessert and a glass of red wine of course. I would prefer something not so sweet, like the basil sorbet or something with fruit.
Happy Anniversary to you both!


Love the idea of celery and rosemary iced. It looks like Lisbon is a food capital as well. Wonderful food pictures.

I love these patterned tile floors too. I don;t think we see too many of those here in the States.


In Lisbon a couple of years ago I found a fantastic restaurant in the center of the commercial area (Baixa?). It's called Em Alta na Baixa. The first time I ate there I had the freshest, most wonderful ricotta cheese ever! I went back for Sunday lunch and had one of the best meals I've ever had. I hope you'll be able to find it.


The food looks amazing! They all remind me of some cooking shows I have watched with the top restaurants in the world.

So many wonderful places to eat in Lisbon (and unlike you, I'm hardly indifferent to desserts!). Just looked up the Bistro at 100 Maneiras, which sounds interesting too: http://100maneiras.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/MenuInverno-En.pdf (hope to try it next time we're there).

P.S. People who live in the land of the French baguette probably don't notice it as much (LOL!), but Portugal has lots of wonderful breads, too!

I agree! They bread to me was superior to the French bread.

Well, I'm not sure I'd go quite THAT far ;-)

What a fabulous celebration this was! I would have had to hold Kirk back from licking the plate ;)

I visited Lisbon in 1978 while still in the clutches of raising 2 children on my own. You have made me want to return to sample the food delights that I missed and to revisit all the eye candy. We did have the pleasure of visiting a hill town market that we spied from our train. Since we were on a train pass, we hopped off and wandered for several hours, delighting in exquisite smells and booths of handmade goods.

You folks are sure travelers! Looks luscious though I would miss the meats. Everywhere you go looks like great weather too while we are freezing our butts off here in northern New England!
