Feast on the Francesinha at the Café Embaixador, Porto, Portugal.Feast your eyes upon the Francesinha. What is in this curious looking sandwich, you ask? Heaven. Sausage. Cheese. Port wine. Onions. And a bit more heaven.
If you visit Porto - and why wouldn't you visit the home of Port wine - you'll come to know the Francesinha. How well you come to know this sammy has a direct correlation to how good of a time you have in this gem of a throwback European town. Restaurants throughout Porto claim that they were the first to invent this sammy or that they were the first to add foi gras or the first to serve it with prawns - none of that matters. All that is important is that you ear more than your fair share of one of the world's sauciest culinary marvels. And that you do it with a pint of beer, and a glass of port nearby.
