Viajante. I wished to visit here so long.
This great restaurant by Nuno Mendes who also leads The Corner Room where I visited last month.
Its kitchen was so open that It looked like the stage of his special theater.
Everyone has some dishes or flavors you would never forget,
but his creation was something that soaks you more and more after finished,
and keeps coming back to your mind a day after, and a week after...
It was the flavor of memory.
It named goose barnacles because people one believed that they were eggs of geese.
You don't think often the dishes tasting yeast.
It is quite unusual, yet the somewhat Umami-like flavors of yeast that tingles your mouth
with something different from saltiness or acidity are addictive.
left is smoked butter and pancetta & walnut bread,
right is with caramelized butter with bacon on top.
The milk jelly on top connected all together.
The yolk was slow-cooked on top of olive oil for 70C.
Until the end I could not understand what tripe of cod look like,
but its texture was so creamy and gelatinous,
plus the cod meat was almost uncooked and had amazing
as well with the previous dish, I was flying to the sky...
I'd never known cucumber could taste so fruity.
Great match with caramelized dry beets and crumbled dark chocolate.
The first few bites were full of earthy & muddy characteristics coming from beets,
yet more you tastes, it became more refined and clean flavors.
I will come visit its bar next time.
