Heartfelt Portuguese Food in PortoThis small family run restaurant is located next to one of the most scenic views in Porto, at Passeio das Virtudes, and is owned by Mr. Vitor and Mrs. Hermínia. Everyone is welcomed as part of the family and the food comes from the heart. Stewed cows tongue, grilled “alheira” (a sausage made without pork), fried liver in onion sauce and so many more delicacies that Mrs. Hermínia prepares. In the whole of Porto this is the best place for: codfish “pataniscas” and chocolate mousse. “Pataniscas” are egg, flour, parsley and shredded codfish omelet, served with rice and read beans.
Chocolate mousse is made daily by Vitor. As soon as the last customer leaves the restaurant Vitor will start making the mousse. But what makes it so special? The fact that Vitor uses no electrical appliances to make it and his recipe (a secret)! Ask for a shot glass of “aguardente” to go along with it and you’ll understand why I’m so crazy about it.
