Welcome to Porto, the city of Tripeiros!

Did you know that the citizens of Porto are nicknamed after a famous and historically incredibly important dish called Tripas à Moda do Porto (Porto-Style Tripe)? Call them as you wish – tripe eaters, animal gutters… However, nobody can deny the fact that these people had some serious guts back in 1415 by giving all of their meat to the Portuguese fleet ready to embark on an unpredictable adventure with the goal to conquer Ceuta. The only thing the citizens of Porto were left with were tripes from which they then made what is today known as one of the most popular dishes of Portuguese gastronomy and symbols of Porto. It is for this reason that they carry their nickname with pride.

What to eat in Porto?

Porto is a wonderful, picturesque city located on the charming Douro river and a magical place to discover Portuguese gastronomy! Here are some of our Porto food recommendations: 

1. Her Royal Highness – Francesinha

Whether you can parler français or not, you will for sure parler Francesinha. Yes, there is a connection between France and one of the most famous Portuguese delicacies such as Francesinha, which literally means “little French lady”. What an interesting name, right? And the dish itself is even more interesting. Francesinha is a type of sandwich, well only by its shape, so if you thought that you can just grab it and eat it, forget about it. Because that thing is huge. To eat this special Portuguese “sandwich” you will definitely need cutlery. In terms of amount, Porto food does not disappoint, and nor does our Portuguese Food Tour in Porto. 

Our Menu 
includes:

  1. Several varieties of Portuguese cheese tastings.

  2. Several varieties of Portuguese sausages tastings. 

  3. Several varieties of Portuguese seafood and fish tastings.

  4. Several varieties of Portuguese meat dishes.

  5. Two varieties of Portuguese street food.

  6. Wine pairing tastings.

  7. Port Wine tastings.

2. The king of Portuguese wine

Port wine is a wine like no other, sweet yet so delightful and with the power of instantly taking you on a journey to the wonderful Douro Valley, from where you will be sailing down the river making your way to the port of your dreams. This wine is an absolute must-try. It usually accompanies an appetizer or a dessert. However, the wine by itself totally deserves to be a dessert, for it is marvellous. Once Port Wine has charmed you, you cannot let go. Simple as that.

3. One of the main ingredients of Portuguese gastronomy - Codfish

Do you feel like ever since you came to Portugal, someone has been following you every step of the way? Well, my friend, you are not wrong. Speaking of friends, the reason why codfish is to be found everywhere in Portugal is because it is known as their “faithful friend”, hence why it is always around. Did you know that there are 365 recipes on how to prepare codfish? You know, the Portuguese just want to make sure they have one on the kitchen table for each day of the year. Some even go that far and say that there are 1001 ways to prepare codfish. 1001 ways! Well, that explains the fact that Portugal consumes 20 % of the world’s codfish and confirms that no other nation cherishes codfish as much as the Portuguese. It has been love at first codfish ever since the 14th century, and this bond is still as strong. One can for sure claim that codfish plays a very important role in the Portuguese cuisine.

Can I have a Cimbalino?  

    Oh, and a Super Bock for me, please!  (4.)

It is finally coffee and beer time. You would kill for an espresso, but have no idea how to order it? We’ve got you covered! Cimbalino is the way to go since this is how an espresso is called in Porto.  

As far as beer is concerned, in Porto we drink Super Bock. Order a “fino” and your draft beer is on its way.
