Sushi or Ceviche? New restaurant in the Algarve promises “floating gastronomic experience”

Installed on a floating platform over the saltwater lake, BLEND Nikkei is the new restaurant at the Domes Lake Algarve resort, in Vilamoura. It is described by chef Vítor Moreira, responsible for the menu, as a true “floating gastronomic experience†. It offers an innovative fusion between Peruvian and Japanese cuisine, with the bold flavors of Peru aligned with the meticulous techniques of the Japanese culinary arts. But it doesn’t stop there. BLEND Nikkei also serves a selection of top quality meats, offering a very diverse menu designed for the Algarve summer.
