It’s been a week since I got back from my holiday in Portugal, but a nasty stinking cold has made sure it feels like it was a million years ago.
Whilst sat wrapped in a blanket on the sofa sipping Lemsip and feeling sorry for myself, I had a sneaky look through my photos and tried to rekindle some of that holiday feeling.
Well, of course we had barely landed and I was already trying to figure out where it was!
Luckily for us, our hotel was located on the beach in Albufeira, a 5-10 minute walk from either Old Town or The Strip – where Senhor Frogs was located!
However, it wasn’t until a drunken taxi ride home when we finally spotted the restaurant (we hadn’t really done much research and had no idea where we were – it turned out to be 10 minutes walk from us!).
So the next day we marched up the hill to see what they had to offer!
Luckily, I had read on the review that if you want a GF pizza, you have to order it earlier in the day so they can prepare the dough – so we stopped by at lunchtime to make our order for dinner.
I was really pleased to see the signs outside clearly advertising the fact they did gluten free pasta, and I went to speak to the waiter who was very nice and told me my pizza dough would be awaiting me at 7pm that night!
That night I was excited to choose my pizza from their vast range – a little over priced for Albufeira (I think mine cost me around 16 Euros) but I chose one with pepperoni, ham, peppers, mushrooms and olive.
The most exciting thing for me, after my whole battle with Dominos, was that I could even order my GF pizza in a LARGE!
When it got placed in front of me I was so excited – it was huge and stuffed with toppings, I couldn’t wait to get stuck in!
I was really impressed by the base – it was quite a thick base but really light and unlike any I have had before – it was so tasty.
The best thing about Senhor Frogs was that when I couldn’t finish the whole thing, they even let me take it home and they told me they would put it in a different box to my friend’s leftovers, so it wouldn’t get contaminted. Brownie points for them!
I enjoy the leftovers later on with my Kindle and a mug (yes, classy) of Sangria in bed. Bliss.
Overall I found eating in Albufeira pretty hassle free – I stuck mainly to salad (which I LOVE when I’m abroad) fresh seafood and paella – and of course Sangria!
So if you’re heading to the Algarve and you want some gluten free pizza – head to Senhor Frogs!
