Traditional Portuguese Flavours in Porto
It should be mandatory to visit this place if you wish to fully understand Portuguese gastronomy. Why? Might you ask? Easy, because in this small, family run restaurant you will be able to sample unique items from Northern Portugal’s gastronomy. From roasted kid lamb, tripe stew, roasted duck and the crown jewel: “Arroz de Cabidela” – homebred stewed chicken with rice, seasoned with blood (from the chicken) and vinegar. It doesn’t sound as good as it tastes, but believe me, it is a true delight. In order to taste such delicacy, one needs to order it two days in advance, as the chicken will come from the owners, Rodrigo and Maria Rosa´s farm in Amarante (60km from Porto). All in the name of quality! The familiar feeling is strongly cultivated and the most faithful customers even have their names embroidered in the napkins…
