A lot of buildings in Lisbon are covered with the most gorgeous and colorful ceramic tile. As we learned on a food tour this morning, this is because these tiles were once cheaper than paint, they fire-proof a building and the tile reflects the sun. Older buildings do not have indoor heat or air. The colors are mesmerizing. I thought I would share some of my favorites with you so far…

    1. The best chocolate cake in the world (self proclaimed by the baker), mussels, mushrooms, canned sardines with bread, pork croquettes, bruschetta on pork crackling, pork sandwich, soupy rice with beans, cod fritters, cabbage medley and ended with an egg custard they called a sponge cake. All accompanied by different Portuguese wines. Overall, quite good.
