Hanging around in Mouraria, Lisbon

Hanging around in Mouraria, Lisbon

“Let’s walk this way!”, Edgar says as we leave behind the Intendente square and head towards Mouraria…

At a first glance, I realize I never walked this street before. This street that leads to another one, bumpier than in other quarters, but pleasantly exotic. Continue reading

Warning: Landeau Chocolate cake will get you addicted

As the quote goes, “If nothing else works, try chocolate cake.”

Every now and then we stop by El Corte Inglês to take home a slice of this divine chocolate cake. We feel like it’s hard to put in words how amazingly it tastes Continue reading
