O restaurante Spices convida-o a viajar pela gastronomia da China, Japão, Tailândia e Índia. Os donos do Penha Longa Resort decidiram dividir o Midori (uma das maiores referências dos restaurantes japoneses de Lisboa) em dois espaços diferentes: o Midori e o Spices. O Spices é um restaurante pan-asiático onde a comida é mais descontraída e onde as pessoas podem partilhar os pratos.

O Chef responsável é Pedro Almeida, também ele Chef do restaurante Midori. Para ele, a cozinha do Midori é mais divertida de criar, enquanto a cozinha do Spices é mais divertida de comer, inspiração que vem da street food asiática. Pedro Almeida apresenta os melhores pratos dos quatro países asiáticos, como o teriyaki de chipote, caris indianos entre muitos outros.

INSIDER tip

Sinta uma explosão de sabores ao experimentar umas espetadinhas de frango, com molho teriyaki e crocante de citrinos. E não deixe de provar aqueles pãezinhos chineses com diversos recheios como atum, camarão ou porco.

    The setting in Penha Longa is beautiful, with a great view of the scenery. We went to the Saturday buffet. The food was wonderful, a wide selection of items, well prepared. The disappointment was the service, but this may be in part to the changes made because of the Cover-19 situation. Instead of a regular buffet where diners can serve themselves, there is a system where the staff serves the guests. This slows things down. Rather than getting up to serve ourselves, we were encouraged to ask the staff for dishes. The staff brought some things promptly, but one item we requested never arrived. Also, paying the bill proved to be unexpectedly slow. The restaurant was more crowded than I had expected, given the current restrictions on indoor dining. Overall it was an enjoyable experience and I would go again after the pandemic is over.

    We had a good meal at Spices. The food was spot on. Portions are pretty small but the flavor is very good. We were sitting not far from the kitchen and that made it a bit smelly. The exhaustion is not the best but allright in the end. Service was also pretty good. It’s certainly a nice trip around the Asian flavors.

    As always, food was great and staff was very welcome. Because it was our daughter‘s birthday they prepared us a small birthday cake. With beautiful surrounding, Spices is a great asian food experience.

    Everything from the food quality to the service was perfect. João had very good knowledge of the wines that he served, and together with Vanessa and Catarina, they took good care of us. We always felt we were being looked after. It surely was a 5 star experience.

    Food okeish. Portions too small, with exception of the bao’s. 20 minutes to get the bill, is not Acceptable for this type of restaurant - clearly understaffed.

    Food was outstanding, as was the ambience of the place. The staff were attentive, welcoming and knowledgeable, able to recommend which dishes were particularly good on the day. They also offered guidance on how much to order, etc. Particular highlights were the bao, bulgogi and the desserts were sublime. Decent wine list, too, with fair prices. Well worth a visit!

    A super experience, very delicious food, each one a little surprise, and very attentive and genuine staff. We followed the recommendation of the sommelier that was both times very good. Thanks for this nice, relaxing and enjoyable experience.
