Lower East on tour with camera, note books and (of course) the macbook; doing research, finding inspiration and taking photos for the forthcoming cookbook from Camillo’s Kitchen. In Palma de Mallorca and in Lisbon. Especially the food scene in Lisbon was new for us, rich and very inspiring.
In Palma we saw the food market, Mercat de Santa Catalina as a little oasis in the hectic (and way too touristed) part of the city; Santa Catalina. We had a wonderful and joyful dinner at Duke, and also found the tapas at 13% very pleasant. In Lisbon especially Taberna da Rua das Flores and Cervejaria Ramiro stood out, with fantastic meals, lively atmosphere and a sweet staff. Also the two food markets Mercado da Ribeira and Mercado de Campo de Ourique was certainly worth the visit.
We also had time to look at art; at CCA Andtratx, Mallorca and at Es Baluard, museum for modern and contemporary art in Palma – and to have a very uplifting talk with the sweet people behind tings lisbon.
And now back to work with new energy and fresh inspiration.
