Portugal amazed me not only by its rich history and endless ocean with gorgeous golden sanded beaches but also by its simple, healthy and tasty cuisine. For me, a leisure trip to Portugal turned into a real gastronomic tour.
So, let’s see what real Portuguese dishes you need to try, definitely ?
I love soups a lot and Portugal was my best cure, to choose from a variety of soups. The weather was chilly during the end of October, which is a good time to search for the best soups. So if you’re in Portugal during this time, make sure you taste the most famous soup called Caldo Verde. It is an authentic Portuguese Soup dish, which uses traditional flavors and ingredients and is notoriously served in all restaurants and also weddings or birthdays. This soup is made from vegetables, kale cabbage, and smoked chorizo sausage which gives it a nice green color. It costs from 3 euros in restaurants to 1,5 euro in a shopping center cafe.
