Cruel – How cruel can one get?

How Cruel can one be? So there’s this restaurant downtown called Cruel, where your adventure level is tested. The menu is divided into 3 types of adventures, the fearful, the cautious and the cruel ones. I found out I’m quite cruel, as my favorite dishes are all listed under the cruel menu, but it is not as bad as it sounds!

It’s fun to take friends for their first time there, so I can scare them a bit regarding the dishes. As a starter I always ask for the Electric Carpaccio (for 2) as it gives you a localized electrified feeling once you eat it (for a couple of minutes, don’t worry!), adding to this, it is absolutely delicious. As a main course I love having the Hallucinating Mushroom Risotto, one of the best I’ve ever had, and last time I had Toucinho from Hell as a dessert… Oh boy what a back-in-time surprise.

Most of the dishes on the cruel menu have a creative twist, making it so amusing to have a meal there. I can’t tell what some of the twists on my favorite dishes are, otherwise I’d ruin the surprise, but trust me, it’s worth the adventure.    

Portions are generous, so I advise you to share starters, main courses and even dessert. Don’t forget to book a table.

Life can be cruel. Eat and forget it!
