Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so start your day off right! Join us on this petiscos brunch in Porto to see what the locals enjoy eating in the morning and to take in the city’s early day atmosphere. You’ll live a morning in the life of a Porto native, eating all the best local foods along the way!
EXPERIENCE A REAL TRIPEIROS BREAKFAST DURING OUR PETISCOS PORTO MARKET BRUNCH
Mornings in the city are fascinating because they always show you the most authentic aspect of how its inhabitants live in their hometown. Drinking coffee at the café is a social activity shared by almost all Portuguese, so it is not surprising that Portugal has developed a unique coffee culture and meets daily at the café. It’s a unique cultural custom which will be explained by our local experts during our Petiscos Porto Market Brunch.
We have designed this adventure to show you these people and the way locals live and interact in the city through the spectrum of food. At each stop of our Petiscos Porto Market Brunch you will taste an important element of the cuisine of Porto and Portugal. You will also learn about the families and history behind each of the cafes, grocery shops and restaurants that you visit.
As food experts, we will guide you through a succession of typical moments of life starting with an elegant café to explore what a typical Portuguese breakfast is like. Our second stop, a most compulsory and traditional moment of the morning, the “café with nata,” will take you through the history of the country. By visiting Porto’s main market you will also learn about another classic moment of the morning known as “lanchar,” which could be also called second breakfast, or morning snack.
You’ll visit the most authentic gems on the off-the-beaten-track in the Bolhão neighborhood, and you’ll weave in and out of locals doing their shopping as you learn about their daily customs and traditions during our Petiscos Porto Brunch. By the end of the adventure, you’ll know exactly what it means to eat petiscos and live like a local!
A MOST SURPRISING EXPERIENCE, THE PETISCOS PORTO MARKET BRUNCH IS MORE THAN A TOUR!
First, we will begin our Petiscos Porto Market Brunch at exactly the peak time for many cafés, and will start our journey with a unique, and most typical, local breakfast. To continue the adventure, we will pass by a homemade cake bakery to try delicious bites of warm pasteis de nata. Then, as a third stop, we believe that any good food tour, especially in the morning, must include a local food market! That is why we have chosen the most typical and high-quality markets in town, to continue our adventure and show you some of the best fresh products our region offers.
Your tasty bites during our Petiscos Porto Market Brunch include presunto (Portuguese ham), local cheeses, delicious olives, and our incredible Green wine. On our way to the last stop you will discover a very old grocery from the 1900s with local specialty foods; the flavors and scents of this place are magical! To finish up after these four very different experiences, we will end up like locals do, in one of the most popular restaurants in the area. This is a favorite spot among the residents, for what is, again, a must-do local tradition, the bifana sandwich of Porto and Portuguese beer! It’s quite an old specialty of the city and you will discover why Porto’s residents are called the “Tripeiros.”
