Petiscos is what we eat in Portugal when we want to try small portions of a variety of food. Just like the spanish call it “tapas”. And Matateu is the right place to do it!

I tried Matateu with my best friend, an invite from Zomato and I can definitely say that it was a great experience.

Located inside a football stadium, this restaurant is quite cozy and the service very good. When it comes to food, I will let the photographs speak for itselves.

I advise you to not take public transports to arrive to the restaurant. It’s a chaos! But it does have private parking so there’s your solution!

Because it’s almost summer time and I want to share my latest passion with you, here is a brand that I found recently and had the opportunity to speak with the people behind the concept!

Headband from my Mama made me fall in love with their kimonos and headbands the moment I opened their Instagram page!

The brand has a very special concept where a girl and her mom create these beautiful masterpieces by hand.

You can by it online or participate in my new GIVEAWAY here, if you want to win the headband on the photographs.

Madrid| Chocolatería San Ginés

This will be the first post of many after my trip to Madrid, where I got to visit the most amazing places and try some local restaurants.

 photo IMG_9097_zpswyi9doag.jpg  photo IMG_9111_zpsw8w7gi2j.jpg

The Chocolatería San Ginés is very well-known for their – churros con chocolate, a delightful dessert of fried dough served with a large teacup of thick, melted chocolate for dipping.

 photo IMG_9119_zpsr1kg8duv.jpg

After a long day of walking, my friends and I decided to try it. Guess what! It’s open 24/24! Perfect for satisfying late-night food cravings.

 photo IMG_9107_zpsqpmega9l.jpg  photo IMG_9095_zpsfocr19gl.jpg

Tiled floors, bright lighting, bow-tied waiters, and collection of old photographs create an atmosphere where no one cares about calories!

 photo IMG_9105_zpsf2xrarw9.jpg  photo IMG_9101_zpsts7bsrva.jpg  photo IMG_9093_zpsv1vsyq4h.jpg

Although the waiter wasn’t very gentle (no tip for that one), the churros were great! I totally recommend you to visit it!

Renault Clio

This new five-door Renault Clio was the car that I drove for a longer period of time since I’m doing car reviews, for the simplest fact that it’s very economical!

 photo SAM_3927_zpsbuv7km5y.jpg  photo SAM_3918_zpspjqxwqoj.jpg  photo SAM_3900_zpsofflojzt.jpg  photo SAM_3928_zpstgcjf30q.jpg

It has a simple and minimalist interior, although the plastics aren’t and don’t look as cheap as the other Renaults I drove before.

 photo SAM_3940_zpsmg8xnrjy.jpg  photo SAM_3938_zpsl7qsl0hw.jpg

The large touchscreen display is great, especially when you’re using the GPS to get somewhere. Although, every time you want to turn off the GPS, before you arrive to the destination, it’s a tough job! Let’s say the turn off button isn’t very “findable”.

 photo SAM_3937_zpsn61pnlun.jpg  photo SAM_3939_zpse3tezigi.jpg

On the back seats of this Clio you can find enough room for two adults, maybe even three if they’re good friends.

 photo SAM_3933_zpsjpswzdmm.jpg  photo SAM_3935_zpsn2ur1g1o.jpg

The boot is bigger than the old Clio which is perfect for everyone if I may say!

But where the heck do I put my CDs? There’s no such a thing as a CD player! I agree that we’re on this new technological era or whatever and that’s the reason I bring an iPOD with me for the long rides, but I think it’s too early to sell my CDs on Ebay.
