One of my favourite things about living in Portugal is al fresco dining, which I can do every month of the year here. There’s the added bonus of being able to bring my dog with me (dogs are not allowed inside restaurants or cafés in Portugal).

This was lunch on Tuesday at Micha o Bar along the riverfront in Gaia. I usually avoid waterfront places but Micha is an exception — consistently delicious food, great service, non-touristy prices (these dishes were €8.50). Their smashed potatoes with garlic is worth the walk over the bridge!
