First impressions are very important when it comes to restaurants. There’s usually a particular aspect of the experience that you’ll remember and that may very well define the opinion you have of it. It’s the one thing you’ll mention when recommending it (or not recommending it) to your friends.
The thing I remember about Bom de Sal – other than having spent a really nice, long evening there – is being able to taste the true flavors of the food that was on my plate, one dish after another, all the way through to dessert. And feeling pleasantly surprised by that.
It was like eating my grandma’s food, only with a sophisticated, elegant twist to it. It had that same purity, that down-to-earth quality that keeps it real: Not too much salt, not too much pepper, not overly spicy. Just that perfect balance of the masterfully combined ingredients. Classy comfort food, a true taste of what Portugal has to offer.
You can opt for a main dish or go the ‘tapas’ route. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, sushi is also on the menu. If you’re unsure of what to order, talk to the very friendly and helpful staff: you’ll be greeted with a warm welcoming smile and great advice for the perfect food journey.
