Besides being a source of pride for the Portuguese, food brings together families around the tables, friends who share snacks together, lunch with work colleagues and serves as a motivation to those who visit Portugal keep coming back!


Such a close relationship with gastronomy is reflected in diverse and differentiated delicacies, authentic business cards for foreigners visiting Portugal. It is no coincidence that Portugal was regarded by CNN as the best foodie destination of Europe in 2016.


Firstly, we distinguish the codfish - Portuguese culinary chameleon fish that adapts wonderfully to over one thousand dishes. If talking about the fish, it is essential to mention the huge Portuguese coastal zone rich of sea specialties. For Spanish chef Ferrá Adrian, the famous elBulli, the best fish and seafood in the world are Portuguese.


If almost everyone already knows that in Portugal you can eat a well-grilled cod, a "Cozido Portuguesa" (typical Portuguese dish with a variety of cooked meats) or the classic sweet "pastel de nata", there are still people that do not know all the secrets. Roussette soup, the "queijo da serra" (a typical cheese), sausages of Tras-os-Montes. And, of course, the bread, the basis of Portuguese cuisine, which is present on every table.


When someone says to have eaten a good meal in Portugal, this statement certainly includes a drink. The Port wine, so appreciated in England, is not the only traditional wine of Portugal. The Douro region has become famous worldwide because of its certified DOC wines, but wines of Alentejo and Dão are loved by many people as much.


If Portugal is the home of Portuguese cuisine, Lisbon is its epicenter. Since the traditional fado houses of the typical Alfama district have the signature cuisine and are able to satisfy the most sophisticated appetites, Lisbon offers the most traditional and typical restaurants and also elegant international restaurants. From brunch or snacking in "tasca" to a sushi restaurant, you have plenty of choice in Lisbon.


For all these reasons, the city of seven hills is an obligatory destination for what is caught in the sin of delicacy.
