It's been raining on and off since we've arrived to Portugal. The sun started to peek out of the clouds so we went to have lunch at a restaurant with a ocean view. The restaurant is called Mar do Inferno and it's right next to the Boca do Inferno (Hell's Mouth) in Cascais. Boca do Inferno is a chasm on a cliffy seashore and is quite the tourist attraction around here. I don't really know why they call it Hell's Mouth when it's such a beautiful and calming place. Maybe they call it that because of the huge waves that violently & dramatically strike the rocky walls. When I think of "Hells Mouth" I think more of my dog's mouth and her stinky breath...I love to come to this restaurant because of it's ocean view and their super fresh seafood. You gotta admit, nothing beats fresh seafood.
Sis-in-law had Fried Helk fish fillets. Hubby & I had the seafood platter with grilled fish, grilled prawns, and mussels. Potatoes, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower also came with the dish and everything was perfectly delicious! Of course, no meal in Portugal is complete without dessert. We had some pudin flan (traditional Portuguese flan). And my sis-in-laws favorite dessert, Baba de Camelo, a Portuguese caramel mousse. So creamy and rich. We had a pleasant sunny lunch at a table on the porch overlooking the sea. I definatley reccomend this restarant to anyone who might be visiting Cascais.MAR DO INFERNO
