Restaurante Bonjardim – Lisbon, Portugal

After seeing the sights in Belém and eating THE pastel de nata, we took the tram back to Lisboa’s Figueira Square.  So our day in Lisbon is pretty much a food tour and next on the itinerary is Restaurante Bonjardim.

Restaurante Bonjardim is famous with the locals and serious gastronomists for its frango (chicken).

It was a bad idea to down several glasses of sangria when I was dehydrated…..

bread and chicken pâté…. I guess they have a lot of left-over chicken bits to make the pâté!

2 orders of the famous rotisserie chicken.. I don’t like the rotisserie chicken mom gets at Safeway or Costco but Bonjardim’s frango is in a league of its own!  The chicken skin is crispy (yet slightly salty) while the meat is juicy and tender.

We also ordered the fries but it was forgettable.. it’s like the fries you have in Chinatown.

No wonder Bonjardim is called Rei dos Frangos (King of chickens).. cause it puts all the Safeway, Costco and even Nando’s to shame!
