|Our first glimpse of Viking Sea docked in Lisbon|
But first, about last night…it was our second and final night in Lisbon and my good friend Bruce highly recommended Cervejaria Ramiro (1 Avenida Almirante Reis, Lisbon, Tel: +351 218 851 024) Since Bruce seems to have taken in the entire Iberian peninsula on his trip last year, I was not about to quarrel when he raved about this place. Turns out it is so well-known our cab driver said there
was no need to tell him the address as every cabbie in Lisbon knows it. When we got to the restaurant there was a long line of people outside. Fortunately, Bruce had warned us of this daily occurrence and told us not to worry. In a few minutes we were inside the densely tabled space. And a few minutes after that we were ushered to our table on the second floor. Ramiro, as it is commonly called, is the home of the best Garlic shrimp I have ever tasted anywhere. But we didn’t stop at the shrimp. We dipped Portuguese rolls into the garlic butter wishing there was more. We ate langoustes until we were stuffed. And I think you can see why.
