Gastronomy

Famous for its delicious seafood and fresh produce, Portugal’s cuisine is as rich as its varied landscape and bold history.

The most typical Portuguese fish dish is Bacalhau (dried, salted cod), which is virtually the national dish with reputedly 365 different ways of preparing it. While the most distinctive feature of the Portuguese cuisine comes from the sea, accompanying nearly every dish are potatoes, either fried or roasted in the case of most meat dishes or boiled if you’ve ordered fish.

Portuguese olive oil is another prime ingredient that is found in every dish preparation. Another staple in Portugal’s cuisine is cheese! While Queijo da Serra tops the bill, all the cheeses from Centro de Portugal, Alentejo and the Azores are delicious.

Each delicious meal is then paired with the best wine.

Don’t forget to save room for dessert! Wrap up your meal with coffee (or espresso!) and a delicious pastel de nata (custard tart), possibly Portugal’s most well-known dessert.
