As promised, we went back to Miss Saigon. What can I say…it is one of my favorites spots in Lisbon. We had a reservation for a first lunch in Lisbon, almost straight from the airport. This time I didn’t go for the combination-platter. I needed room for the desserts…
The first day I had lovely Jewish pastries… mmm…really good!
And I had a very nice pear cake as dessert, while my sister had a wonderful coconut pudding. I wanted that too, so we needed to come back.
We had one more opportunity to eat there, so we made reservations for the next day.
Then I had a Portuguese dish with rice and onions…very well seasoned.
This left some room for two desserts — a great apple crumble with cinnamon (a classic combination, but it is classic for a very good reason… it just tasted so good!).
And of course I had to try the signature dish by chef Claudia, the coconut pudding with plum sauce and a plum. What can I say…it was truly wonderful and creamy with a velvet texture. The plum sauce was completely in balance with the pudding. I did try to find out how the pudding was made, but it is top-secret. Only the chef knows (and that is how it should be).
We definitely need to go back here next time…not just for lunch, but also for the great desserts!
