Semana Gastronomia Portuguese

Post by roy4eyes »

A forum members secret -- the best bargain of this week is the gastronomic festival held at Fatacil,Lagoa, from 4-13 June.
There are restaurants with food typical of various regions of Portugal at local prices, superb quality,and huge portions (the chef came along to see if we had enough and offered second helpings !!), and a wide range of craft stalls.
We had the kid and the local recipe pork dish with more than enough wine (excuse any typing errors !!) and couvert (a meal in itself) for €30 for the two of us.
An excellent traditional folk group played from 9-10 p.m.
We shall be going back 2 or 3 times next week, but don't tell anybody or the place will be crowded out with tourists !!!!!!!
Note the portuguese week lasts nine days - aren't we laid back here?

Hey Roy you told us about it and thanks!
It was a great evening and good to meet up with you again there.
We really enjoyed the music from the bands and our wild boar with chestnuts dinner - massive portions though. The handicrafts stalls gave Rampage's wallet a bit of a pounding too :) .
