Portuguese Food Cuture and Restaurants

Portugal’s cuisine is as rich and varied as its landscape. The most distinctive feature of Portuguese cuisine comes from the sea. As you enjoy a simple grilled fish, always fresh like the seafood that abounds from end to end along the coast, you can be sure that you are in Portugal! Cataplanas, bouillabaisses and any other fish or seafood dish are also excellent choices. For meat dishes, the traditional ‘Cozido à Portuguesa’ is a mix of meats, vegetables and various sausages, cooked in a dellicious way. Portugal has excellent DOP (protected denomination of origin) meats, from north to south, whether it’s beef, pork or kid.
