Portuguese food

The food of Portugal is rich, & has a depth of intensity just like its people.

Quay Restaurant

Wow, how long has it been since I last posted. This wasn't intentional, but life has become incredibly busy and I just haven't had time to sit and write a post.
I'll try to keep going but if it proves too much then I'll have to retire I'm afraid.

So after a very long absence I'm not going to write about Portuguese food, I know outrages isn't it, but truth be told I haven't been taking photos of the food that I make, again time restraints.

A very dear friend of mine was going back to her homeland, so we decided to splurge and go to Quay.
What an experience! We went on a very cold winters day when it was pouring outside, but the rain did not dampen our mood. We were excited!

What can I say about the food, fantastic! I went several months ago and since then the menu has changed, so I haven't got the name of every dish, sorry guys.

We decided to go for the four course menu. Check out their website.

Sashimi of sea scallops,
 smoked eel flowers, apple, organic crosnes, horseradish, sorrel shoots, virgin pine kernel oil

Mud crab congee, fresh palm heart,
Hand shelled mud crab, Chinese inspired split rice porridge

Crayfish with a beautiful sauce. (Sorry guys I forgot)

Pigeon Breast with liver puree

Lamb & Pork

Sea Bass

Guava & custard apple snow egg (the famous dessert featured on Masterchef)

Eight texture chocolate cake

A very over cast day. The rain stopped enough for me to take this photo.
