Quay Restaurant

Wow, how long has it been since I last posted. This wasn't intentional, but life has become incredibly busy and I just haven't had time to sit and write a post.
I'll try to keep going but if it proves too much then I'll have to retire I'm afraid.

So after a very long absence I'm not going to write about Portuguese food, I know outrages isn't it, but truth be told I haven't been taking photos of the food that I make, again time restraints.

A very dear friend of mine was going back to her homeland, so we decided to splurge and go to Quay.
What an experience! We went on a very cold winters day when it was pouring outside, but the rain did not dampen our mood. We were excited!

What can I say about the food, fantastic! I went several months ago and since then the menu has changed, so I haven't got the name of every dish, sorry guys.

We decided to go for the four course menu. Check out their website.



Sashimi of sea scallops,
 smoked eel flowers, apple, organic crosnes, horseradish, sorrel shoots, virgin pine kernel oil





Mud crab congee, fresh palm heart,
Hand shelled mud crab, Chinese inspired split rice porridge



Crayfish with a beautiful sauce. (Sorry guys I forgot)




Pigeon Breast with liver puree



Lamb & Pork


Sea Bass




Guava & custard apple snow egg (the famous dessert featured on Masterchef)







Quay's 
Eight texture chocolate cake




A very over cast day. The rain stopped enough for me to take this photo.

Olá Anna,
Descobri seu Blog hoje, procurando uma receita de massa de pimentões (já que aqui no Brasil não é comercializada...).
Adorei tudo, as receitas, as estórias, também sou de família portuguesa (minha avó era de Trás-os-Montes) e amo tudo relativo a Portugal.
Só não gostei que o Blog tenha parado em setembro de 2011... Por onde andas???
Beijos,
Fernanda (Mafalda Ofélia é pseudônimo...)

Olá! descobri o seu blog por acaso quando andava À procura de como é que se dizia massa de pimentão em inglÊs para postar no meu blog! E não acreditei quando vi que era da Austrália! eu estou neste momento a viver na NZ, e a minha paixão sempre foi a pastelaria. A minha ambição num futuro próximo será criar aqui o meu próprio negócio. Estou neste momento a criar um blog para colocar as minhas receitas traduzidas, porque até hoje só tinha página de facebook. Muitos parabéns e bom trabalho!

ALL THAT PORTUGEE FOOD LOOKS LIKE BABY VOMIT!

***PORTUGAL IS A HIGHLY RACIST AND XENOPHOBIC COUNTRY!

DO NOT SPEND YOUR HARD, EARNED MONEY VISITING THERE,
OR DOING BUSINESS WITH PORTUGAL!!!

PORTUGAL = RACISM 100%
