Hotel Food

It was almost 3PM when I arrived at the Hotel Real Oeiras. I was satisfied with the in-flight meal, but I was starving after I settled down in my room. I rested for a while then headed down to the hotel’s charming restaurant. I wanted to eat rice but there was none on the menu, so I opted for the pasta with prawn. I am allergic to prawn so I told the waiter to take out the prawn. Having said this, I noticed the waiter’s surprised expression but just ignored it. When the pasta was served to me, I knew why the waiter gave me that expression. Being used to Philippine-style spaghetti, I was expecting to have at least tomato-sauce paste on it and a few slices of bell pepper. But there was none! It was basically just pasta with olive oil! I had to add pepper and salt to give it a little flavor. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a camera with me at that time so I wasn’t able to take a photo.

After a few days stay at the hotel, one became a favorite: smoked salmon sandwich:

It was really good! But eating it almost every dinner was definitely a bad idea. There was one night when I just opted to have the tropical fruits for dinner:

These were papaya, mango, and pineapple slices.
On my last night at the hotel, I tried the soup. I forgot what was it but I think it was pumpkin soup.

The soup was delicious and so was the set of Portuguese desserts:

    The food seemed to be okay although it was unfortunate that you were allergic to shrimp and was not able to fully appreciate your shrimp pasta. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.


Let me know what you think :)
