Manique do Intendente
We walked to the market place today where on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays the farmer brings a truck of fruits and vegetables. All local. There are no signs that this is a market… just a stone wall and some tables with the produce and very friendly people.
Then we went and found some lunch. We wandered around town a bit but we found Cafe Kate Kero with excellent food. We had no idea how to communicate but we were directed to a sweet little table and they just brought us food. !!! First they set down local olives in a small dish and some fresh bread. Then they brought Giant plates of an amazing pork dish with rich, flavorful broth, carrots,onions, cabbage, rice on the side. It was exceptional. I think the meal also came with a small carafe of red wine, desert, and a small coffee but we said, “Obrigada, no.” We were so full and we did not want to waste the wine and dessert. The bill for both of us was $14 and you DO NOT tip here. It’s considered rude from what we have learned. Such nice people and we will go back for sure. It’s just steps away, a few turns, down the cobblestones.
