Restaurante Cabo da Roca

April 21, 2011

Portugal, Part VI: An eatery with a view of the Atlantic that seems to stretch forever.

Cabo da Roca is the cape that forms the westernmost tip of mainland Europe. It's a worthwhile stop, an hour's drive from Lisbon, with strong winds that threatened to blow us away.

The no-frills cafe here provides a wide range of Portuguese snacks, including "pastel de bacalhau," a cod fish-& potato croquette. Nicely battered comfort food.

The closest thing to a Portuguese cupcake. Sweet, moist and fresh-tasting.

Even the most humble outlet in Portugal serves wine. Gotta love it.
