Pelos caminhos de Portugal - part 7 - Food in Guimarães!

by - Monday, November 09, 2015

Hello again!!

I hope you are not hungry when you read this, because I am about to show you some of the super delicious foods we had in Guimarães.
All our meals were at S. Tiago's Square because over there there are plenty of great restaurants and it's very easy to find. This square is right in the center so you can't miss it. On a square "next door" called Largo da Oliveira you will find nice pubs to grab a dinner!

In all places we went, the service was great, as quick as possible and the food was just damn delicious!! You always get a lot for the price you pay.
The most difficult part was always to chose what to eat; the options are endless and most of them I had not have in a while. Difficult...
Part of this trip was also meant as a new "food experience", especially for Portuguese cuisine is very diverse and "homey" and I was so happy to see that along the way, was enjoying it. Mission accomplished! :-)

On to the food:

  • Caldo Verde + Polvo à Lagareiro = happy me!!! Mr. man had for desert a little Toucinho do Céu which is an abbey pastry. We topped with some great wine and coffee afterwards.

  • For lunch with had a great Gilt-head bream (aka Dourada) on the grill with black eyed bean salad. Enough to keep us going the whole afternoon.
  • For dinner, I had squids in tomato sauce with potatoes. 
  • As a snack, with a salty pastries with different fillings. We call them empadas.

Did I make you hungry?? hahaha
On the next chapter: Vila Real!!!

See you soon!!
