One of the benefits of being on maternity leave is that I can FINALLY get out and try out some local spots for lunch!
HIM and a Portuguese friend often head down to Flagey to a little Portuguese tavern/restaurant during the week for a bite of lunch… the spot is called PESSOA – and I had been itching to try it out as well.
Looking for fine dining? This isn’t it…
Looking for down-to-earth Portuguese food in a relaxed atmosphere? This is the place…
HIM ordered pork escalope’s
while Sas went for Portuguese steak – served with a side portion of black-eyed beans that were so delicious that she asked for a second portion! (Which was happily provided)
and of course – I decided that cordon bleu was what I felt like – served with frites and a mushroom sauce. Fancy cuisine it was not… Comfort food – it was! (And enough frites to make me happy!)
thereafter – a little bit of Portuguese sweets were in order… Gateaux Marie… Mmmm
Would I return? Absolutely! Prices are really good (mains are about 12-15euro’s each….)
