When I first entered a Portuguese restaurant I had my doubts about the prepared desserts displayed in the fridge. I was used to a dessert menu with all sorts of expensive ice creams made to order, and I wondered how long these pre-made desserts were already waiting for their host. Has it been days, weeks? Do people ever order a dessert here?
But now, after multiple dinner experiences, the first thing I do when entering a Portuguese restaurant is checking out their choice of desserts. Sometimes when I can’t choose, I take two. Why not?
