The Melting Pot

Lisboa, Portugal


As our name suggests, our table is about sharing dishes from different countries and cultures that reflect our own travel experiences. Nout has lived in two different countries, and Nora in five, and together we have traveled many more!
Whether it's an Italian risotto, Belgian fries, South Korean tofu stew, German dumplings or Thai vegetable curry, we want to surprise you with different tastes, smells and textures. We are not exclusively vegetarian but, as you can see from our list, predominantly. Most important for us is the quality, taste and use of fresh, local and seasonal ingredients!
And by the way, we like wine... very much!

Quer se trate de um risoto italiano, batatas fritas belgas, um estufado sul-coreano com tofu, bolinhos alemães ou curry tailandês com legumes, queremos surpreendê-lo com diferentes sabores, cheiros e texturas. Nós não somos exclusivamente vegetarianos, mas, como pode ver na nossa lista, predominantemente. O mais importante para nós é a qualidade, sabor e a utilização de produtos frescos, locais e ingredientes da época!
E pelo jeito, nós gostamos de vinho ... muitissimo!

    This was my first Cookening experience, and I honestly can't say enough good things. I had wonderful time. Nout and Nora prepared a delicious 4-course meal with well-paired wines, and were fun to share a meal with. They also have a beautiful apartment filled with books and records. I hope to see them again at some point in my (or their) travels!
