Balcão de Henrique Sá Pessoa
Fotografia: Manuel Manso Balcão de Henrique Sá Pessoa

On the seventh floor of department store El Corte Inglès, Gourmet Experience has a 360º view of the city which, until now, no one was enjoying. The new food court, inaugurated last Christmas, has 17 stalls, six of which by national and international chef who, between them, have five Michelin stars. Amongst the best ones: Poke by Chef Kiko; Balcão by Henrique Sá Pessoa; Tasca Chic by José Avillez; Jacaré - a space for “vegetarian carnivores”; Imanol by Aitor Ansorena - with Basque dishes; Galician tapas house Atlántico by Pepe Solla (who won a Michelin star for Casa Solla in Pontevedra); and Barra Cascabel, a partnership between Mexican chef Roberto Ruiz (one Michelin star for Punto Mx in Madric) and the Avillez group. For dessert, keep some space for Nannarella’s gelati.

Went to buy a shirt, stumbled on another great stop! Stopped at the section pictured, not sure of the name, I got the cuttlefish on squid ink bread, companion got the sea Bass over risotto, both were beyond our expectations by a BIG margin! Lightly breaded, most tender cuttlefish (and a lot of it!) I have ever had, her bass perfectly cooked over beautiful risotto, what a lucky find!! Only judt read this is one of the new great restaurants in the city and it deserves the recognition!!
