“At Casa de Pasto da Palmeira, in Cantareira, snacks are on another level. 'Alheira' muffins, Rui-style eggs and smoked chicken rolls are among their best-known treats. They have a regularly updated menu and every month something new comes along, such as fried chestnuts, pork cheeks with pumpkin cevadotto or the cinnamon and sweet eggs ice cream. Will they still be on the menu when you visit? Probably not. But that's all part of the fun. Tips: – The “alheira” sausage muffins and chicken rolls are permanent fixtures but everything else changes, so if you taste something you like - order seconds! – The outdoors tables are among Foz's most coveted, even in cold weather.”

“One of the many beaches you can visit. There are two restaurants here: the old and the new one. I always choose the old one: typical comfortable food for the sole.”

“In Oporto, there are places like this: irresistible and romantic. Surrounded by lush green gardens and situated in the old tennis court, the Serralves Tea House offers a unique atmosphere. With interior room and terrace, it’s a place to enjoy before or after a raid by the exhibits and gardens of the Foundation.”

“The Portuguese are crazy about their pastelerias. You can go there for a cosy breakfast or for 'lanche' with is an afternoon break with a bite. You should try the 'lanche misto torado' and of course all their cakes :-)”
