The lunch stop of on the Cooltour Lisbon‘s Alentejo Wine Tour from Lisbon Including Lunch was Restaurante Pipa Redonda in Évora Portugal. Évora is a pleasant 30 minute drive from the Ervideira Winery and is the capital of Portugal’s Alentejo region and looks like a spot to return to for a few days to check out the place and, maybe, a winery or three.
Restaurante Pipa Redonda was full with a mix of locals and groups when we arrived, which is usually a good sign. As an added bonus there was a nice local feel about the place. After our wine tasting at Adega Ervideira we were ready for some Portuguese Food before the our next tasting.
To start with we had Cachopas Cheese. A cheese that is made from a combination of cows and sheep milk. Basically you cut its top off and scoop the soft cheese out and apply to some crusty fresh bread. Very tasty!!
Açorda de Bacalhau (Codfish Bread Soup)
Restaurante Pipa Redonda
If you are in Alentejo and especially in Évora Restaurante Pipa Redonda is a must. Great food and ambiance with local charm, not sure about the pricing, but believe it is pretty good.
The Secreto Pork is a must, the Açorda de Bacalhau is a close second. When I am back in that part of the world I will be heading back. Can’t wait!!
