Known as the 'little Paris' of Eastern Europe, I'm starting to get a feel for why! Share this: This, is a prego no pão. You can get one just about everywhere – they are ubiqutous Portuguese bar food. ? ? In Portuguese, prego means nail, and pão means bread. ? ? Much to the dismay of myself and other Portuguese language learners, no does not mean no. It means on/in (não means no) so.. this translates roughy to 'nail on bread'? ? The nail part? that's referring to nailing the garlic into the meat with a mallet. Either that, or it's named after Manuel Dias Prego. Both stories are correct, depending on who you ask. ? ? In any case, it's a steak sandwich in a ciabatta-like roll, with a side of mustard and occaisionally a fried egg.April 7, 2022In "Photos"A little corner of our cute Lisbon flat. All the artwork was from a Tunisian artist, which was stunning. We've moved on from Lisbon now, but thought this a good opportunity to photo-dump what's left of my Lisbon & South Portugal pics before moving onto Porto and the North, where we are now!? ?May 7, 2022In "Photos"Portugal makes lesser known, and completely underrated cheese. Loads with sheep and goats milk, some with cows milk, as well as 'misturado' or mixed, made with a combination of milks. ? ? Portuguese cheese is interesting as well because many of them are truy vegetarian (not vegan though, of course) opting for thistle rennet over animal rennet to cure the cheese. ? ?April 3, 2022In "Photos"
