Lunch Date In Lisbon

I know temperatures are falling and by now I should be embracing autumn. Truth is it’s rather very warm in Lisbon, Portugal – or at least some days ago when I was there.

Lisbon has some very steep streets and many cobbled ones too – so don’t even think about wearing your best heels or any stilettos. The Tuk Tuk is a fun way to get around and explore the wonderful sights of Lisbon. Another advantage is that they can manoeuvre through the smaller streets whereas taxis might not be able to.

Hubby and I went to the restaurant Alma for lunch. Initially we intended to go for dinner but unfortunately, it was fully booked on that day we wanted – but we managed to get seating for lunch. I recommend reservation well ahead.

We rang the doorbell of the restaurant as instructed and was greeted by a very friendly host who ushered us to our table. The restaurant is sophisticated and modern with a calm atmosphere. Usually, a full menu is too much food for me so I choose a la carte. The food was absolutely delicious. Not only was it a joy for the taste bud but very pleasing to look at. Believe me, the Michelin star is well deserved. It was a lovely dining experience and we were well looked after by our friendly waiter.

The only downside was that hubby was sulking a little because I forbade him to order foie gras. Reluctantly he searched for something else – at the same time mumbling something about me telling him what to eat. When his first course arrived I saw his eyes lit up and he was back to usual. After the first glass of wine, he probably forgot about foie gras.

    I hardly ever wear red, but this fabulous dress might convince me to give it a try. Love the white boots and PVC bag. You look fabulous! Great tips on Lisbon, too!!

      So many women stay away from red, but all it needs is to find the right shade. I’m so into white boots right now. Thank you!
