Portuguese cuisine: simple recipes that capture the essence of taste

Describe a little Portuguese gastronomy. How different is it from Romanian cuisine?

In Portugal we let the ingredients taste and that is why the recipes are often extremely simple. We do not use spices to change the taste of food, but rather to enhance its natural flavor. Olive oil, which is known to be one of the best products in the world, is indispensable in Portuguese dishes. In the south it is cooked a lot with fish and seafood, while the north, the mainland, is known for the variety of dishes with Black Pig, for sausages and cheeses.

For many dishes from both cuisines, the base is similar. We use a lot of fresh vegetables to give a rich taste to the food.

There are certainly similarities between the two cuisines. For example, we also have soup.

How did you build the menu and how often do you change it? I know you even brought in a Portuguese Chef to lead the team

I like to think that we took everything that is the best from Portuguese gastronomy, everything that our Romanian customers and expats could appreciate. We also have Portuguese dishes for connoisseurs, as well Warm Green, Bacon loin or Bife to Portugal, but also simple dishes such as grilled or pan-fried seafood, to which we imprint the Portuguese taste by adding cilantro (coriander) and garlic.

Each season brings something new to our menu, but there are also dishes that have remained unchanged since the opening, because they are extremely appreciated.

We took everything that is best from Portuguese gastronomy, everything that our Romanian customers and expats could appreciate. We also have Portuguese dishes for connoisseurs, such as Caldo Verde, Lombo de Bacalhau or Bife à Portugalia, but also simple dishes such as grilled or pan-fried seafood, to which we imprint the Portuguese taste.

After already more than 5 years since you opened the restaurant, could you make a "top" in customer preferences? What are the most popular dishes on your menu?

Pan-fried seafood appetizers in olive oil are by far the most popular. In addition to perfectly enhancing the taste of fresh seafood, they can be ordered in various combinations to be shared between friends or family members. In Portugal they are called Snacks and they are a real opportunity to socialize.

And it would be Cream pastries, the famous tarts with puff pastry and fragrant egg yolk cream that lead the top of the dishes ordered on our delivery site.

We Romanians are not the biggest consumers of fish, but seafood has become increasingly popular in recent years. Looking back, how would you say your customers' tastes have evolved / changed?

I'm in the restaurant every day and talking to customers - so I found out that there are not many places where you can eat a really fresh fish, an oceanic catch fish. One of the main reasons is the higher price. Most restaurants compromise on quality out of a desire to stay competitive. But true connoisseurs know how to make a difference and pay the price for a good fish, even if they may not pay for that fish every day.

As for customers' preferences regarding seafood, the fact that they have traveled more and more in recent years and experienced them in various forms, has contributed to their popularity. Now, since the pandemic, we have longed for the holidays with a good wine and a plate of seafood.

"Apart from vegetables and fruits, all the ingredients come from Portugal," explains Jose Gaspar.

3. Bacalhau com broa, probably the best recipe with Portuguese code

What would Portuguese cuisine be without a code ?! Or, rather, without bacalhau, the specialty of salted cod kept in the cold, whose secret is sacredly guarded by the Portuguese.

It is said that the Portuguese can cook cod in 365 ways, for every day of the year. But one of the most interesting recipes with code, is Bacalhau com broa. This dish is an interesting mix of tastes and textures. Traditional bread corn flour juveniles it perfectly covers the slice of cod, keeping the juice and aromas inside, and all this composition is perfect by the presence of sauteed spinach.

Discover Bacalhau com broa in the Dancing Lobster menu.

Fast Portuguese Tarts (Jamie Oliver Recipe)

Spread the puff pastry on the work table, sprinkle with cinnamon and lightly rub into the dough to spread the cinnamon well and cover the dough surface evenly.

Roll both sheets of dough and cut each roll into 6 equal pieces.

Place each piece on one of the wide sides (you should be able to see the spiral created by the cinnamon) and flatten with your fingers in a circular shape. Place the discs in a standard muffin tray.

Using your fingers, place each piece in the shape of a cup, slightly increasing its diameter, using the muffin shape to help you create the desired shape. Put in the oven for 8-10 minutes at 204 ° C, on the top grill.

While the shapes are baking in the oven, prepare the cream mix. In a medium bowl, mix eggs, sugar, vanilla, sour cream and orange peel.

The molds should still be slightly soft and slightly fluffy (swollen) when you take them out of the oven - using a spoon, push the dough back into the muffin tins and into a cup shape to support the cream once poured.

Fill each form almost to the top with the cream mixture. Place the cups filled with cream back in the hot oven, at the same temperature and on the same shelf at the top of the oven and continue to bake the tarts for 8-10 minutes.

While the tarts continue to bake, prepare the caramel topping. Heat a medium-sized pot on the stove over medium-high heat. Add the sugar and juice of 2 oranges. (Be very careful when preparing caramel - it's like melted lava. Only use metal utensils when preparing caramel because it will destroy your wooden spoons and plastic ones run the risk of melting). Stir occasionally, constantly following the pot to prevent burns, the sugar will melt and bubble while we cook it. The caramel is ready as soon as it acquires a copper color and should be ready at about the same time as the tarts.

Move the tarts on a grill placed on top of a tray to cool. Using a spoon, sprinkle the tarts with the prepared caramel.

Preparation time: 10 min

If you want to season the caramel, you can add some bourbon whiskey. 1 tablespoon should be enough!

You can see Jamie preparing this recipe in the video below.

Idea: You can add some fleur de sel (salt flower) on top of each tart immediately after sprinkling it with the caramel. This will increase their flavor in an amazing way!

My passion is cooking!

That is the question. Why homemade cakes? Because cooking for your loved ones is an act of pure love. We are all aware that health is the most valuable asset. It is rightly said that we are what we eat. That is why it is very important to eat as naturally as possible. As healthy as possible. Let's strive to cook homemade food, homemade cakes, to convince our children that a homemade dessert is much better than a commercial cake, full of blasphemous E's.

Most of us are very busy and we think we have no time for cooking. It is very easy to get lost between the chase for money, work obligations, time lost in traffic, bills to pay, shopping, meetings with parents, washing, ironing, cleaning… And yet, what do we eat today?

The answer comes naturally. Homemade cookies. After one or two dishes, also homemade, because I suggest we all make a change in the way we look at life, care for health and, therefore, in the way we cook. Old and new recipes, traditional, modern and reinvented. This is the slogan of this project. Recipes for classic or fashionable homemade cakes, simpler or more complicated, faster or more laborious.

Portuguese Pastais de Nata

I honestly waited so long for the moment to come when I will share the recipe for the Portuguese Pasteis de Nata tart. Without exaggeration, it is the most beloved dessert of those at home. The Portuguese eat it every morning with a strong espresso with which it combines perfectly.

It was invented in the 18th century by some monks who earned their living by selling these desserts. After the liberal revolution, many monasteries closed, and a sugar refinery bought the recipe and opened the Pasteis de Belem factory named in honor of the Santa Maria de Belem monastery.

The most interesting thing is that many have interpreted this recipe of Pasteis de Belem, but all this is called Pasteis de Nata and only the one made according to the secret recipe has the right to be called Pasteis de Belem.


  • 600 gr of puff pastry
  • 500 ml of milk
  • the peel of a lemon
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 60 gr wheat flour
  • 500 gr sugar
  • 250 ml of water
  • 7 yolks

Method of preparation

  1. Roll the foil and then cut it into 24 rounds.
  2. Glue the dough evenly to the shapes, cut the extra.
  3. We mix half a cup of milk with the flour to have a homogeneous mass, we boil the remaining milk by adding cinnamon and lemon peel.
  4. At the same time put the sugar with water in a saucepan to boil until it reaches 100 C.
  5. Incorporate the table of flour with milk in the bowl of hot milk and chew quickly so that we have as few lumps as possible. We also add the water with the sugar that has boiled (in the dough of milk flour), we continue to chew.
  6. Strain the cream through a sieve to have a fine cream and distribute in shapes to cover 3/4 of the dough.
  7. Put in the oven at 250 C for 17 minutes until the crust does not brown.

If you find metal shapes or go to Portugal on trips buy a set of metal shapes typical for this, it will definitely catch on well. I used silicone molds, which are universal and do not give way to traditional ones.

Cooking Pasteis de Nata is very simple and you only need 2 things to love extremely for those who will cook and have a little time.
