Day four was also the day that restored my faith in Portuguese food! After another disappointing lunch in a little restaurant called LxBoa, we happened across a buzzing, sunny square through a hidden archway, full of happy-looking diners, sipping cocktails and tucking merrily in to some drool-inspiring dishes. This place was called Aprazivel, and it was great. We booked a table for the evening immediately.
This was the disappointing lunch... chicken pieces full of bones and brown bits, place rice, and plain salad. Even the Sangria wasn't great.
And THIS was Aprazivel. It boasted the best Caiprinihias I've ever tasted I think, and had a fun, modern vibe to it with the outside seating, sunshine, and young clientele.
For starters the three of us shared the assorted cheese platter, which was served with a sweet chutney jam, walnuts, grapes, and a variety of breads and biscuits. It was a simple dish, but tasted amazing! Cheese platters should officially always be served with walnuts.
Main courses were a sordid affair. The three of us plumped for the "American" burger - a mouthwatering beef burger, cooked to perfection, with bacon, egg, cheddar cheese, and salad. It was incredible.
We left very happy bunnies, and got some delicious ice cream from Amorino for the walk home, where we sat and enjoyed some Fado music from our balcony, and said our farewells to our last night in Lisbon...!
