lulas em matosinhos

This old man and the box of fresh fishes (the one next to him were all salted sardines) were the main reasons why I stopped at this restaurant for lunch. Unlike other seafood restaurants which dotted the main streets adjacent to the beach area, this quaint little cafe had a down to earth feel and nobody spoke any English until I struggled really hard to understand what the waiter was babbling about. My initial plan was to look for some big ass local shrimps but I guess I can save that for another day now. The squids I ordered were really fresh and the guy who manned the grill clearly knows how to cook them properly. Dressed in just Portuguese olive oil, lemon juice and a sprinkle of parsley, they were really good with some boiled potatoes (unsalted!!!!) and a bottle of vinho branco.
