A-100 Burger Delivery - Rua Doutor Bastos Gonçalves, 1, Loja 7, Campo Grande, Lisboa 1600-898 | Rua Afonso Pala, 17, Algés

I've always been an unconditional fan of hamburgers. As far as meat is concerned, few things give me as much pleasure as eating a delicious, well-seasoned burger with gravy and mushrooms.
The hamburgers are back in fashion and every day specialized houses are born with attractive dishes and affordable prices. If on one hand, there’s a loto f new choices, on the other I’ve become even more demanding with what I like to taste. There are so many things like, without distinction, and then there are restaurants that really excel at quality, like A-100.

I had heard of the restaurant but only had a chance to try it last weekend. I'll tell you what: they’re motherfucking amazing. I haven’t tasted such a good hamburger in Lisbon for a long time. Let me explain.


I was at a friend's house for a birthday party and we ended up getting hungry and someone suggested the A-100. First, it should be said that there are several A-100 shops in Lisbon from where you can order and they have a delivery service, so you only have to order and wait quietly on your sofa waiting. We made six different orders and I choose the menu with artisan bread, A-100 meat, cheddar, caramelized purple onion, bacon, garlic mayonnaise. In half an hour, the deliveries guy was ringing the doorbell. For a Sunday evening, they were quite fast. The menu comes with chips and garlic sauce. A hamburger lover like me can never put aside the importance of good french fries. It's kind of special trick that makes it all so incredible. These potatoes are thin, well-seasoned, almost fat-free, which allows the flavor of the main dish to be highlighted. The portion is the right amount.


Another interesting detail is the type of bread. You have the classical types and for those who like the more hipsters versions, can choose caco bread and beetroot or spinach cake. Either of them is tasty!
As for the meat, a double positive. I ordered rare and came on the spot. Well seasoned and with a delicious taste. The meat is of high quality. The condiments also came in the right dose - I hate eating and feel that the plate has so many ingredients that everything starts to run down - and the purple onion was wonderful. The way the fry lets the taste hold, without getting that annoying onion flavor that never comes out again.


In conclusion, the A-100 was a very successful experiment. I walked easily into my top 3 of Lisbon hamburgers. Oh, and it should be said that the price is quite affordable and can always take advantage of the promotions as having a € 2 discount on each dish if they order more than five. I paid € 7.50, with shipping included. Perfect!


The best breakfast recipes

11.04.19 | Sounds & Flavours

I always had a problem with breakfast. In fact, several.

It’s agreed that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. A good morning meal will give you the necessary nutrients and the right amount of energy to make the day start in the best way but a lot of times, it's easier said than done.

My morning consists of three moments: waking up lazily, dragging myself out of bed and doing a dozen things because I'm almost always late to get to work. I’m a sleepyhead and not afraid to admit t. If I don’t have my breakfast prepared the night before, I rarely get to eat anything at all and I end up eating a shitty sandwich bought in some café.

Of course, I get to the lunch hour hungry as hell.

This is a very complicated habit for me to change, even though I’m making an effort and that requires some pre-established ground rules: I always try to let everything pre-cooked ou already prepped the night before; I search for simple and quick recipes; I always have some basic ingredients at home likes eggs, bread, cream cheese or fruit.

So here are some of the recipes that I have been cooking each morning. The ingredients are easy to find in any supermarket, they’re really quick to cook and above all these are delicious dishes.
