and THIS is what we ate!!! First I've to say that we entered in exactly that fishrestaurant where I wanted to go with my mum 4 days ago. It's directly at the beach and it smelled wonderful!! Since she wasn't hungry we didn't stop there but silently I was wishing/promising to come back. That it'd happen in this kind of way, was amazing and still...yes it's beautiful... Back to the food: Percebes
We had a supernice fishsoup and then this portugese delicacy! It is rare and expensive and potugese are very proud of it (so no bad comments 😜). It's a kind of shell that you find on the rocks. You've to know the (often super dangerous) places to collect them and collecting them means braking parts of the rocks as well.
How to eat:
So I NEVER saw a similar thing in my life before and yes for me they could be aliens as well. So you take one of them and pull of this black, rough, waterprof tube, that's around the eatable part.
While pulling this off, all the salted water (that they were cooked in) comes splashing out. It splashes on you and on your neighbours... but it's normal while eating them no one will complain. Then you bite of the part that leads into this white top. And they like to suck out the top as well.
It is salty. It has a taste that I can't compare with something else. The consistence is a bit like rubber.
It's defentely a new expierience for your mouth, your hands and eyes and brain 😄. So I always like to try out for me unknown food. And I'm thankful if someone is showing me this, part of another culture and making me learn a lot.
We had a supergood cake (which was made from just almonds, sugar and eggs and you prepare it in a pan) while Iris Berben (a famous German actor had her birthday family dinner there ^^) So all in all and a sum up of moments where you just have to smile while shaking your head.
