What you can expect
Our guide will meet you at your accommodation and will guide you through the streets of Porto to our degustation spots.
On the first stop, you will taste the famous Portuguese tart “Pastel de Nata”, a reference of the gastronomy not only of our city but for the whole of Portugal. With a sweeter taste in our mouth, we go for a small hike in the city where you will hear about the city lifestyle and traditions.
The second stop will be at a famous local café that offers a delicious “Sandes de Pernil Misto”. This sandwich is made with slow roasted pork and sheep cheese in a slightly toasted bread loaf. Our recommendation is that you choose the house sparkling wine to go along with it.
We continue our gastro tour to a tiny restaurant that has a combined pork dish of local delicacies along with chicken gizzards or fried codfish coated in batter. To go along with it we suggest the house’s “Vinho Verde” or the typical beer “Super Bock”.
To end the day, we stop nearby to try a nice “Prego no Pão”, a sandwich with beef loin and cheese. This one goes well with the local wine “Espadal” a classic in Porto. We hope that at the end of the day local gastronomy is another reason for you to be in love with our town.
