Our Pre-Michelin Guide Spain and Portugal 2016 SuperChef Series by Gourmand Breaks – An insight into the world of some of the current Michelin star chefs in Spain and Portugal – is well underway. We previously showcased the current Michelin 2 star restaurants in Portugal (there are only 3): Belcanto, Ocean and Vila Joya.

There are currently no Michelin 3 star restaurants in Portugal so on now to the Michelin 1 star restaurants in Portugal.  There are just 11 Michelin 1 Star restaurants in Portugal (at the moment) and we’ve already showcased: The Yeatman, Casa da Calçada, Fortaleza do Guincho and Eleven

Now we’re heading to Porto and a New Kid on the Block being awarded his first Michelin Star last year:

Pedro Lemos

Pedro Lemos – had a successful career in civil engineering, but decided to leave it all behind to follow his passion for food. After studying and working with varios master chefs, he spent a few years in Lisbon before returning to his hometown of Porto to open a restaurant in 2010. Pedro received his first Michelin Star last year in 2014 for the 2015 Michelin Guide to Spain and Portugal. Is Pedro on a winning streak for another Michelin Star for 2016? All will be revealed on the 25th of November.

Pedro Lemos (Porto) – is housed in an old (now renovated) 19th century house in the heart of the distinguished Foz do Douro district of Porto. Apart from the cosy chic ambience of the dining room there is also an attractive rooftop terrace for dining al fresco. Pedro Lemos presents Portuguese cuisine based on traditional dishes using only fresh seasonal ingredients. The menu changes frequently but you can always be sure of curious and creative dishes here. To be enjoyed on one of our Private Food, Wine and Cultural Tours :-)
