2. Broaden your palate
Portugal is renowned for gastronomic excellency thanks to its abundance of fishing villages. On the coast you’ll never be far from fresh seafood, with grilled fish and pasteis de bacalhau (fried shredded cod combined with potatoes, onions and parsley) being popular staple dishes. For those with a sweet tooth, a pasteis de nata (Portuguese custard tart) never goes amiss. While in Porto you can visit a pasteis de nata atelier bakery to sample these freshly baked egg custard tarts. Delish!
