Two brilliantly creative meals – part 1: Taberna da Rua Flores, Lisbon

Fortunately André Magalhães was released 
from his beer prison to cook for us this evening

At André's Taberna you order a series of 
small dishes from the blackboard  

Readers of previous posts will know how enthusiastic we are over André Magalhães' brillantly inventive cooking at his tiny Taberna da Rua Flores, Lisbon. Each time we are in Lisbon we try to eat there – we were back there in mid-July. 

This will be a two-part post as more recently we made a wonderful dinner at Roger Jones' The Harrow in Little Bedwyn. I don't know whether Roger and André know of each other or have met but I suspect that they may well have a lot in common.   

Fantastic (horse) mackerel dish: picadinho de carapau

Just seared tuna (above and below)

André's signature dish – his take on fish and chips

Branco Especial, Quinta dos Carvalhais kindly brought by André Riberinho
A blend of several vintages this remarkable white was only made once 

Even for bears space is at a premium in this tiny restaurant...

The lamb cutlets went before I could take a photo!

Duck livers 

Special 15-YO fortified wine 

Suicide by chocolate!

Address: Rua das Flores 103, 1200-194 Lisboa, Portugal
