29. April 2012: Restaurant Brasa dos Leões

The place was recommend by our host and we walked up to it and it looked pretty shabby but it was full, so we decided to give it a shot and waited 20 minutes outside until a table got free. As a starter from the kitchen we got some kind of sausages they were tasty […]

29. April 2012: Taberninha do Manel

A plate of pata negra (EUR 6.00 on the menu, we were charged EUR 6.50) is a great idea to chill out in the sun and enjoy the sun down in the evening. The pata negra was good and tasty. The beers were rather cheap (accounting for about EUR 1.50 per glass). The place is […]

29. April 2012: Taberna S Pedro

This is the secret spot to be in Porto – a hidden gem in the Villa Nova di Gaia. We were brought here by Thierry with his Tuk Tuk. He started his business about just that exact weekend when we were there and does trips with the Tuk Tuk along the sea shore of the […]

29. April 2012: Forno dos Clérigos

The Forno dos Clérigos is a place I would absolutely not go again. The place looks like rubbish, the waiter was the unfriendliest individual ever, made a lot of mistakes, just pretty much smashed the dishes and drinks onto our table without even looking at any of us and rushing away. We got the wrong […]

28. April 2012: Twins Baixa

The Twins Baixa is the little downtown sister club of the more famous Twins Foz. The club is very crowded, the atmosphere is nice as it has a long bar when you enter … … and a lounge-like area in the back part of the club. The music played is good, the crowd is nice […]

28. April 2012: Restaurant O Paparico

A TRULY OUTSTANDING EXPERIENCE: Dining at the Restaurant O Paparico! It already starts when you get there (most likely by cab as it is located a bit outside of the city center). The taxi driver dropped us and all we saw was a simple door of a regular house – finally someone knocked because the […]

28. April 2012: Restaurant Adega & Presuntaria Transmontana II

The restaurant Adega & Presuntaria Transmontana II is definitely a great place to sit outside in the sun, have a beer and to enjoy the tapas. The pata negra was great, the meat selection was okay and the cheese selection was definitely good. Each plank accounts for about 10 EUR which is quite expensive for […]

28. April 2012: Café Mira Douro

The soup of the day (EUR 1.50) was not clearly definable – assumingly it was some kind of vegetable soup (probably leftovers from the day before) but it was eatable. It lacked a bit in spices (salt and pepper) but that problem was solved quickly. As a main course I had grilled sardines (EUR 8.50; […]
