To Do in Porto

This post has nothing to do with wine, but I obviously get asked a million times where I recommend to eat and drink in Porto so here’s a list of my favourite spots.

Favourite Classic spots of the city:
– Casa Guedes, for a pork sandwich with mountains cheese (although, Mr.Guedes sold it last year. But still worth it)
– Gazela, for the little spicy hot dog called Cachorrinho (it is more of a mid afternoon snack)
– Conga, for the Bifana sandwich. It is spicy, and it is more of a mid afternoon snack as well.

Classic dishes:
– Francesinha, which is a dish that most international people are not very attracted to, but you should try. Where to eat it is controversial. Even in my group of friends we disagree. I love to go to Capa na Baixa and eat the Raínha that has the sirloin steak.
– Pastel de Nata, which I highly recommend for you to get at regular Portuguese pastry shops instead of spots that exclusively make them.

Favourite Finer dining at around 30-50€ downtown:
– Flow
– Gruta (fish only)
– Cantina 32
– Eskalduna Studio (a bit more expensive)
– Êlebé Restaurants
– Raiz, a great all around restaurant and perfect if you want vegetarian options (I personally love the octopus and the lamb there though)
– Restaurante Traça, especially for the Shank.

Favourite cocktail spots:
– The Royal Cocktail Club (classy)
– Torto (cool)

Favourite tapas spot: 
– Taberninha do Manel (by the river)
– Rua Tapas and Music (downtown)
