A lovely spicy Francesinha stuffing your belly: Restaurant Casa Guedes (7. November 2021)

Since the Francesinha is kind of the typical dish of Porto, we decided that we cannot leave Porto without having tried a Francesinha. I remember that I had one the first time I was in Porto in 2012 and wasn’t able to move afterwards since the thing was so damn heavy. So, I was, admittedly […]

It definitely has changed but is still outstanding: Restaurant O Paparico (6. November 2021)

Last time I’ve been to the O Paparico was in June 2014 and I still have a very vivid memory of that evening – it was definitely a unique experience. And I was ready for another one – which I got, although a bit differently this time than the previous times. We were placed in […]

A nice place to enjoy the sun near the beach in Foz: Bar Homem do Leme (6. November 2021)

If you have the time to get outside of Porto when you’re visiting Porto, you should definitely go to Foz since it’s really by the sea and taking in some sun when you’re at the beach is just one of the best things ever. I absolutely enjoyed the atmosphere, the weather, the sun, and the […]

Perfect to take in the last sun before winter comes: The George Terrace @ Sandeman (6. November 2021)

There is a variety of different small restaurants on the Vila Nova de Gaia side of the Duoro river – and the “The George” at Sandeman is nothing special but somewhat nice. We went for some little nibbles like the “four units of bacalao with garlic dip” (EUR 8.50), “a cheese and bread platter” (EUR […]

A nice experience but in some areas not on Michelin star level yet: Restaurant DOP (5. November 2021)

A nice experience but in some areas not on Michelin star level yet: Restaurant DOP (5. November 2021)

I was super curious to experience the DOP since it has been recommended on the Guide Michelin app and I thought giving it a try wouldn’t be so wrong. Not so sure though. Some of us picked the tasting menu called “Menu Memória” (EUR 100.00) which started with two small amuse bouches which were lovely […]

A local food joint and nothing more: Restaurant Flor de Bragança (Casa Bragança) (5. November 2021)

A local food joint and nothing more: Restaurant Flor de Bragança (Casa Bragança) (5. November 2021)

Once we had arrived in Porto, it was right away time for dinner and since the place had been recommended, we thought we should give it a shot. However, it turns out that sometimes going for recommendations without cross checking them, isn’t really the best of all ideas. Well, the place was packed for sure […]

Vegan isn’t so bad after all: Restaurant Veganapati (23. June 2019)

Vegan isn’t so bad after all: Restaurant Veganapati (23. June 2019)

Whenever someone takes me to a vegan restaurant I put my expectations at the lowest level possible as I believe you’re just missing out on things in terms of nutrients when you don’t eat any meat or diary products. Said that, I followed the rest of the group and gave in to visiting a vegan […]
