Helena – MTL à TABLE visit

I went back to Helena during MTL à TABLE and this time was even better than the lunch special! The presentation of the food is just so beautiful. The taste is delicious and the food is just the right portion for us.

Appetizers

The grilled octopus is very tender and reminded me of Greek grilled octopus. Super good! That’s my favorite appetizer.

The olive puree on the black cod is the highlight of the dish. It complements the fish perfectly.

Dessert

Speaking of Portuguese dessert, most people will think of natas. Helena’s version is cute and sweet. And the chocolate crumbs are surprisingly delicious too! Not just a useless decoration. 🙂
