100 Maneiras Nacional and Ljubomir Stanisic Farewell Party

100 Maneiras Nacional

I love good food. My friends and family all know that I love to cook, I love to eat, and I love to take pictures and blog about good food and good restaurants. So I was lucky enough to be invited to a friend of a friend’s going away party: Master Chef Portugal judge and Chef/Owner of 100 Maneiras Restaurants, Ljubomir Stanisic. Apparently Ljubomir is going on another gastronomic journey in a tricked out RV (shown below).

Ljubomir’s story is a long and interesting one. Born in Sarajevo in 1978, he came to Portugal in the late 90’s to become “o cozinheiro Jugoslavo mais Português de sempre.” (the most Portuguese chef from Yugoslavia of all time.) In 2004, he opened his first 100 Maneiras restaurant in Cascais. Today, he has several 100 Maneiras restaurants in Portugal, including three in Lisbon. The 100 Maneiras Nacional that I visited today opened in September 2011, specializing in Portuguese national dishes and has enough space for large gatherings and private parties.

Let’s take a look at the food shall we?

So it was basically a bunch of really delicious finger food and small plates, including fresh made pastries, pies, and sandwiches. Wine, sangria, champagne, and other beverages were flowing freely. I couldn’t resist the delicious temptation and I loaded up a plate.

In the shot glass we have a creamy potato soup, next to it a take on a salmon sushi roll/sandwich, and in the back fresh made empadas with a creamy dipping sauce.

My friend Miguel was kind enough to offer me a copy of Ljubo’s book, Papa Quilómetros, a gastronomic journey through Portugal and Portuguese cuisine.

The inscription reads, “For Justin, in the expectation of awakening the five senses.”

Well, thanks Ljubo, and have a great journey full of adventure and amazing food! You can follow Ljubo’s progress here at Papakms.
