Our Portuguese is not as good as it should be, so decifering a menu to find a vegetarian option is tricky. Not that there are many veggie options – most Portuguese cuisine is geared towards meat or fish, with the occasional veggie soup thrown in. As a result we haven’t been eating out much here. Except for coffee & pastries, which the Portuguese excel at.
So you can imagine our delight when the guy in the tourist office mentioned there was a vegetarian restaurant in Beja. We had lunch there today and it was lovely – self-service style where you paid for the weight of the meal. It was great to be able to pick something on the basis that it looked good rather than wondering about what was in it. We are now pleasantly stuffed.
Must go now to administer medicine – Uller has an ear infection which has made her go deaf (we thought it was just her age!) and we have to squirt cream into her ears. I imagine she is going to just love that.
P.S. It is 25C at the moment. Lovely.
