Due to its proximity to the Atlantic, Portuguese cuisine consists of many dishes that include fish and various seafood. Fish dishes are either fried, boiled, steamed or baked on charcoal. In terms of fish consumption per year, Portugal is one of the top places in all of Europe!
That is why we recommend trying Bacalhau - dried cod. This is considered the most important product in the country and is therefore treated like a delicacy.
Another famous dish is the "Carne de Porco à Alentejana", a combination of roasted pork and shellfish. Don't forget to try the aromatic national soup "Caldo verde", which is made from kale, potatoes, onions, garlic, olive oil and spicy Chorizo sausage (Chouriço).
