A few weeks ago I was announced one of the winners of a competition held by Lisboa.come along with Tapisco restaurant.
A few weeks later it was my birthday along with Tapisco’s birthday and what better occasion to visit and try out Chef Henrique Sá Pessoa’s recipes.
After living in Spain for more than 7 years and considering Spanish cuisine one of the best in the world, standards were quite high.
Croquetas de jamón ibérico caught my eye straight away. I can’t remember when was the last time I had some of these, but I can say they were very good.
Choco Frito com maionese de coentros e lima – this is a very typical Portuguese dish and I have to recommend that amazing mayo.
Gambas al Ajillo – An all time favourite, perfect to eat along with bread. If you think this is weird, then you have no idea of what you’re missing out.
Tortilla de Patata – I have to admit that I’m not a fan of this dish. My sister ordered it, she’s quite an expert of when it comes to tortillas and unfortunately we all agreed that it tasted like a french omelette instead of a tortilla. I would add more potato to the recipe.
Huevos rotos con paletilla ibérica – You can never go wrong with jamón, unless you add caramelised onions, then it’s a big NO. And unfortunately, that was the case.
Legumes Grelhados com salsa Romesca – Delicious, probably my favourite!
The restaurant is very well located at Príncipe Real. The decoration was very “taberna” in a modern way, which makes you feel relaxed.
There are a few other options on the menu that I would like to try, so if you’re visiting Tapisco make sure you leave a comment below with your feedback!
