Throwback Thursday: O Pastilhas

Ladies and gentlemen, for the month of January I will take you back to Portugal. Those were the days! One of the first places I visited in Portugal was Fátima. Fátima is a holy place where Catholics believe Our Lady of Fatima appeared. My mom goes there every time we go to Portugal.

On our way there we stopped at the Restaurant O Pastilhas. The restaurant stays in Batalha, Portugal. They are not open all the time and normally you must make reservations. They have live music and the food tastes good. It gives you an idea of typical Portuguese cuisine.

I tried so many things, just to give me an idea. First the soup, caldo verde. This is so good, warms your soul. I also tried guisado. This is like stew. I also had a bit of the fried fish, chicken, and then dessert. They had pudim, like flan, they had fruit salad, and they had ice creamed. The ice cream was the best!

That’s that, I give O Pastilhas 4 starts and I wish you all a happy new year!
