By now you must be getting tired of typical Azorean meals, but the truth is that I am trying to get my fill before heading to Japan. Here are two meals, and you won't even believe this, but one is at a restaurant near the base that I have not eaten at yet.
This first one was during Passover, so while Ryan enjoyed this burger...
I enjoyed shrimp (yes never kosher, Passover or not, but I don't keep that kind of Kosher to begin with). Plus, it was the only real option I had on the menu. I am really glad I ordered these because they were really good. Just not enough of them though. :)
My friend Alexandra and I heard some good things about this place, which is just down the street and for some reason I had never been to.
Again, it was Passover, so Alexandra enjoyed bread while I had my cheese and butter with the matzo I brought along.
Since she ordered the buffet, she started off with the pea soup, which she said was absolutely amazing.
This was the lunch buffet. All you can eat for 7 euro (about $10). There was soup, 2 meat entrees, 1 seafood entree, rice, salad, olives and chickpeas.
Since the buffet would have been a waste for me (hold the meat), I ordered a fish dish off the menu. This was the grilled wreckfish, and was delicious. I am definitely going to come back to this place, and next time bring Ryan.
QUESTIONS: Is there a restaurant near your house that you keep driving by but never go in to eat? What is your favorite (based on looks obviously) Azorean food I have shown on my blog?
