Portela do Homem: In the Middle of Nowhere

I've never been in this "restaurant". But I love it.

A long, long time ago, I was wandering in Gerez with my family, by lunchtime, and, not knowing the area, we decided to search a restaurant in Portela do Homem. Silly idea. It was only a customs barrier, away from it all, with Spanish forest in face. I asked to one of the guards where in the area could we eat, and he had a very Portuguese answer:

"If you want my sausage and bread, help yourselves, but restaurants, in this area... none. Not in Portugal nor in Spain."

Now, we are in EU, the frontier is gone, and the police installations became a... restaurant.
You may rely on something more than sausage, and for sure, the same kindness I found there.
