Green Apple Margaritas and Caipirinhas – not to drink, but to eat. Foie Gras “Ferrero Rocher” bonbons. Algarve prawns in ceviche served on a lime slice with a beetroot sphere and fried with a topping. Here it’s served the best-roasted chicken and is served as you’ve never imagined it: in a small crispy base with smoked cottage cheese cream. Potatoes are a big deal here, they’re small. The JAburger, a delicious hamburger served on an ultralight brioche that melts in your mouth. The raspberry yoghurt, mascarpone and meringue serve in a yoghurt sealed up the cup. The lemon-lime globe, a sorbet sphere filled with fresh childhood memories and much are what you can have at Mini Bar.
The brightest stars are the Tasting Menus: Epic and Now On. These two menus showcase the entertainment offered by José Avillez in full. Besides the tasting Menus, there is also a menu divided into several ‘Acts’: Snacks and Creative Entrées – finger foods in a few bites: Fish and Meat to nibble on; a Steak and Hamburger for the more traditional ones. And, to finish off, irresistible desserts. Here music also plays a special role: at Mini Bar every Friday and Saturday from 22 pm onwards the restaurant has a DJ to brighten up the evening.
