It is incredibly difficult to find your local cuisine in a foreign country… which is why every expat gets quite excited if they find something that even closely resembles food from home!
Located on Chaussee de Waterloo near the interchange of Tenbosch – it is still within my definition of “walking distance” from my humble abode. 🙂
HIM ordered a traditional Portuguese dish called Feijoada (essentially a stew with beans, pork meat (everything from a pigs ear, tail, trotter to actual chunks of meat), blood sausage, chorizo, etc) served with rice,
while opted for the Veal skewer served with chips and salad.
We then shared a dessert called Molotov cake (a meringue soufflé dessert served with some caramel sauce) – very sweet!!!!
Would I go back? I loved the interior of the restaurant, it was warm, clean and beautifully decorated. The Staff were friendly and everything moved very efficiently and effectively, without the patrons being rushed. And most importantly… the patrons all spoke Portuguese and if the *local expats* think it is good enough – then so do I!
