SUD Lisboa restaurant review

Have you tried this Pigtail recipe?

Say what? Yeah, it is all about pigtails in this recipe. I first tasted pigtails in Estramoz, Portugal, and it was delicious. I tweaked the recipe slightly, and the result is equally ‘oinkilicious.’ It is also very rich and ‘eating less is more.’ So let’s get down and dirty!   You need two lemons, two…
