    Snack Bar Nun's Valley: Chestnut Cake

    coffee and cake

    Favorite Dish: We tried the chestnut cake and whilst Ok I found it a bit dry - could have done with some cream! The portions where quite large and the best option would be to have two half portions - one of madeira cake and the other chestnut. - that seemed quite a popular choice. On the way out I sampled some of the local liquers made here:
    Chestnut - not quite to my liking
    Cherry - sweet but not as sweet as in the UK
    Caramel - now that was really smooth and yummy, be delicious with ice-cream. I was happy to bring a bottle of that home with me ;-)

    Chestnut soup

    A local restaurant where you can eat a complete sweet chestnut menu. The area is full of chestnut trees, that's why chestnut is on the menu of the few restaurants. From starter over main course to dessert: sweet chestnut it is!

    Favorite Dish: We had chestnut soup. My husband had chestnut salad afterwards (I'd had the chestnuts already) and chestnut cake for dessert.
    We finished with 'castanha', chestnut liqueur!
