Casa Piriquita | Sintra

We stopped for lunch in downtown Sintra and made it a point to have dessert with one particular place in mind. Piriquita came highly recommended as THE go-to place for an after-meal coffee and Portuguese sweets fix, and as we were on a mission to take in as much local culture as possible, it was a no-brainier. Not far from Cafe de Paris where I had my very first and thankfully tasty bacalhao, it was a short walk to get some famous queijadas and travesseiros, waistline be damned. Luckily, it was nowhere as busy as Pasteis de Belem.

As for the bacalhao, while it was unabashedly on the pricey side – the name of the restaurant is Cafe de Paris after all – it was delicious, looked like a million bucks, and was maybe, just maybe, well worth it.
