If you've ever been on holiday in Portugal, you'll know that the array of local food on offer is absolutely delicious. As someone who is allergic to fish, however, I often look for an alternative to the grilled meat dishes served in the majority of restaurants, so I can enjoy a little change.
I found something completely different in the town of Luz, at Chicca's. It's a small restaurant which serves delicious home made food, with a variety of vegetarian dishes; pasta; meat, and beautiful pies.
The owner, Chicca, is delightfully eccentric, and brings a blackboard packed with daily specials to your table. If you have a question about any of the dishes, then just ask and you'll see just how passionate Chicca is about her food!
I ordered the lasagne (above) and my husband had one of the delicious chorizo pies, which is accompanied by no less than nine delicious mini salads. The best suggestion I can give you is to leave room for dessert - they're astonishingly good, and I apologise for the lack of photo to illustrate that!
The food is fresh, delicious, organic, and not too expensive either. Top tips: Chicca doesn't take reservations, so go early if you want to be sure of getting a table. If you want more information on Chicca's, visit the official website here.
