The sign on the huge, old restaurant doors
Very dark picture, because it was a very dark, very small, very cool restaurant.
Travesseiros: traditional pastries that originated in Sintra. The name means “pillow,” and they’re stuffed with an almond, egg, and naturally sugar mixture. They’re very good (again: stopped at one, could’ve had more)
We took the tram from the center of the city to the end of the line- the beach. It’s a pretty 45-minute trip
We had lunch in this perfect location, and tried caldeirada, a fish stew with mussels, clams, shrimp, sea bass. Tons of them. Delicious!
