Returning to the main topic – Portugal, and today I will write about amazing Portuguese food. Portuguese cuisine is among my favourite, it is full of taste, it is greasy, colorful, and simply delicious. ❤ The essential success of the cuisine is quality products. Vegetables and fruits grown in Portugal taste great because of climate and a lot of sun. So, using them as ingredients in different dishes guarantees excellent outcomes.
Another thing I absolutely love is seafood, all kinds of it! In Portugal, basically in every restaurant, you can get the freshest fish, octopus or seafood rice, and many other mind-blowing options.
I have checked out many local dishes, and I should say that spicing is the next secret for an amazing taste. A lot of garlic and sauces usually accompany the main course.
Prices in Portugal are a pleasant surprise after super expensive Finland, so I easily could afford eating in restaurants. The restaurants on the main streets are quite costly, and I highly recommend to walk small streets and search for a tiny local restaurant. The prices are very cheap there, and the quality of the food is even better. The interior is very basic, and it resembles a canteen, but it makes you feel that you sit somewhere in the kitchen and eat a home-made food.
Although I am absolutely in love with Portuguese cuisine, I still couldn’t resist having sushi, which by the way also taste great in Portugal.
