We have finished the major refit work on the boat, it is time to “treat yo self” with a delicious meal at a fancy restaurant.
We ordered Fillet and they let us come back into the kitchen to watch as our delicious meat was placed into the wood fired oven.
It sat over hot embers for a short time (we like our steaks “injured” instead of cooked).
The wood fire gave the food (and the whole room) a delicious odors. I wonder if the chef selects the type of wood used based on the flavor profile they are seeking?
Portuguese food loves garlic, and every piece of meat needs an egg! The amazing thing is the each order of fillet came with three steaks, each cooked to perfection.
The prices in the Azores greatly reduced when compared to Europe and the United States. This meal was at a fancy restaurant (Roberto’s Taberna), yet the entire meal was only € 17.50 per person and the bottle of wine we had was $17. All in all, the meal was amazing and the prices were very reasonable for what you are getting. If you ever find yourself in Terceira, make reservations for Roberto’s Taberna in Angra do Heroismo. You have to call and put your order in the day before so they can have your food ready, and it will be delicious!
