Vale das Furnas: Cozido das Furnas
This restaurant is located in the camping park, a quite place. All the scenery around it is very green.
It is my favourite place to eat our traditional Cozido das Furnas. If you are not familiarized with this dish, it consists of three kind of meat (beef, pork and chicken), blood and meat pork sausages, yam, potatoes, carrots and cabbage. These ingredients are put in a covered pan, with a little of salt only, and steam cooked in one of the volcanic holes around Furnas lake. The cooking process lasts about 6 hours. It is also possible to cook codfish using the same way. You can prepare your pan at home and bring it to the hole to be cooked free of charge!
Vale das Furnas restaurant, besides its good reputation for the quality of the food, has a good ambience. Its simple design invites you for a meeting with the surrounding nature.
Usually I recommend our regional Basalto red wine from Pico Island to be served with this meat dish.
For dessert, can be our pineapple, queijadas de Vila Franca do Campo, fofas da Povoação or rice pudding.
I advise you to book at least one day in advance. One dose is, usually, enough for 2 people.
O Mirone: Spicy food
It's a recomended restaurant by the tourism association. But it's not so good as Tony's. Food is quite spicy for me. And, Portuguese food is not spicy!
But you may try here the "Cozido das Furnas".
I paid 12,15€ for 2 people.
