What I Ate in Portugal


Portugal at 12 weeks pregnant was touch for me. I was still experiencing morning sickness on a daily basis and my smells and tastes were far from normal. I was also unable to eat many Portuguese staples like Serra da Estrela, a soft cheese made from goat’s milk, or Presunto, Iberian pig (prosciutto) which could be contaminated with listeria. I wish I could have been more adventurous in my eating, but I was just grateful not to be throwing up. Once I found things I liked to eat, I tended to want them every day. Simple, carb-heavy foods like sandwiches, pizza, and pasta were my go-to eats on this trip.


1. Food I wished I had but didn't: soft cheese and cured meat (both pregnancy no-no’s)
2. Food I had but wished I didn't: Franchesina. Once in a lifetime is enough.
3. What should have been on the list: Orange juice and Gelato
4. Biggest surprise: the delicious pizza and pasta we had!
5. Most delicious meal: Pizza from Pizzaria Lisboa or the seafood we had at Ramiro’s

Afternoon Tea at the Majestic in Porto

It's been a long time since I've been to afternoon tea, and even longer since I blogged about it, so I was pleasantly surprised...
