Portuguese food is great and you have a lot of options so, get ready to gain some kilograms even by reading this :)
Pasteis de Nata @Cafe Tijuca
World famous, you can find these wonderful sweets everywhere, but locals do have their preferences so I was sent to try out the ones at Cafe Tijuca. Extremely creamy, the Pasteis de Nata are great to accompany your coffee.
Coffee @Esquires Coffee
The place is very hipster'ish decorated which gives the place nice clean view, but I can't say i was impressed with the cappuccino, though they had some excellent salty bites with spinach and ricotta.
Breakfast @Miss Pavlova
If you like Pavlovas then you should clearly have breakfast or at least a coffee break here. We loved the food over there. The Pavlova's themselves are far too sweet for my taste, but I am sure that any sweet tooth would love them
Lunch @Jimeo Tapas
It was lunch time and so we aimed to find a place in the sun that would offer fish based products. So after researching a little bit I found Jimeo Tapas. The service was super excellent and the food had great potential but the fish was far too salty for my taste, otherwise perfectly cooked.
Snacks @MiraJazz & Xico Queijo
We ordered a mix plate of cheese and meat and it was perfect amount. You can also order other types of food over there and you can relax over a glass of wine or beer in a very friendly and cozy atmosphere.
Dinner @LSD Restaurant
We wanted steak, no idea why, but we aimed to check places which are popular for steak in town. After checking out trip adviser we realized that every top rated place was already booked, but we luckily managed to get a table for 2 at LSD, and the food and service was perfect.
Francisinha @Cervejeria Brasao Coliseu
Oh, the Francisinha. I must say it is not something I can enjoy, still if you never tried it, it is something to consider when in Porto. It is usually served with an egg on top and fries, the secret of the Francisinhia lies in the sauce. As Cervejeria Brasao Coliseu has the Francisinha as a popular dish we order 1 to share between 2. It was so big that we did not manage to finish it .
What it is? Well it is a sandwich, inspired by the Belgian croque monsieur but it has several extra layers of meat inside. This dish is clearly not for people on a diet ;)
If you fancy healthier food, you of course have some salad options in there as well :)
I did not try the one in Porto, but I know the one in Lisbon and I love the idea behind it. You can check some details about Lisbon Pop Cereal over here.
