Cosa mangiare a Porto?

Porto è una città meravigliosa e pittoresca situata sull'affascinante fiume Douro e un luogo magico per scoprire la gastronomia portoghese! Ecco alcuni dei nostri consigli sul cibo di Porto: 

Sua Altezza Reale – Francesinha

Che tu parler français o meno, sicuramente parler Francesinha. Sì, c'è un legame tra la Francia e una delle più famose prelibatezze portoghesi come Francesinha, che letteralmente significa "piccola signora francese". Che nome interessante, vero? E il piatto stesso è ancora più interessante. Francesinha è un tipo di panino, beh solo per la sua forma, quindi se pensavi che puoi semplicemente prenderlo e mangiarlo, dimenticalo. Perché quella cosa è enorme. Per mangiare questo speciale “sandwich” portoghese avrai sicuramente bisogno delle posate. In termini di quantità, il cibo di Porto non delude, e nemmeno il nostro tour gastronomico portoghese a Porto. 

Il re del vino portoghese

Il vino di porto è un vino come nessun altro, dolce ma così delizioso e con il potere di portarti istantaneamente in un viaggio nella meravigliosa valle del Douro, da dove navigherai lungo il fiume dirigendoti verso il porto dei tuoi sogni. Questo vino è assolutamente da provare. Di solito accompagna un antipasto o un dessert. Tuttavia, il vino di per sé merita totalmente di essere un dessert, perché è meraviglioso. Una volta che Port Wine ti ha incantato, non puoi lasciarti andare. Semplice come quella.

Posso avere un Cimbalino?  

    Oh, e un Super Bock per me, per favore!

Finalmente è l'ora del caffè e della birra. Uccideresti per un espresso, ma non hai idea di come ordinarlo? Ti abbiamo coperto! Cimbalino è la strada da percorrere perché così si chiama un espresso a Porto.  

Per quanto riguarda la birra, a Porto si beve Super Bock. Ordina un "fino" e la tua birra alla spina è in arrivo. 

Uno degli ingredienti principali della gastronomia portoghese: il merluzzo

Ti senti come se da quando sei arrivato in Portogallo, qualcuno ti ha seguito passo passo? Bene, amico mio, non hai torto. A proposito di amici, il motivo per cui il merluzzo si trova ovunque in Portogallo è perché è conosciuto come il loro "fedele amico", quindi perché è sempre in giro. Sapevi che ci sono 365 ricette su come preparare il baccalà? Sai, i portoghesi vogliono solo assicurarsi di averne uno sul tavolo della cucina per ogni giorno dell'anno. Alcuni arrivano addirittura a dire che ci sono 1001 modi per preparare il merluzzo. 1001 modi! Ebbene, questo spiega il fatto che il Portogallo consuma il 20 % del merluzzo mondiale e conferma che nessun'altra nazione ama il merluzzo tanto quanto i portoghesi. È stato amore in primo luogo per il merluzzo fin dal 14° secolo, e questo legame è ancora forte. Si può sicuramente affermare che il merluzzo gioca un ruolo molto importante nella cucina portoghese.
