Taste Porto – A Food Guide to Porto

Taste Porto is the subject of this next blog post and their objective is for you to leave Porto with nothing less than a full stomach of traditional local cuisine.

 

Taste Porto has grown from its humble beginnings into what it is today – a traditional, well known traditional knowledge provider.

Partnering two Porto natives and one American, the three got together with the business idea that combines their love of Porto with their second love, the local cuisine.

Keen travelers, taste testers, at home chefs, and cultural explorers the team realized that what they valued most from their travels was the opportunity to meet locals and see the city through their eyes. And so it was unanimously decided that Taste Porto Food Tours would do exactly that, allow people to taste the real Porto.

Through their tours you will have an experience that will excite all of your senses. Not only will you taste the sweet and savory dishes of Porto, but you will also see the old ladies keeping guard over the streets from their balconies, you will hear the sales-pitches of the vendors of Bolhão Market, you will smell the intoxicating scent of freshly cooked chouriço, and you will feel the excitement of discovering the hidden gems of the city.

Grab your cameras, but don’t forget to look around, enjoy the food, but feel its smell it first and listen to the guides but listen to the city as well (it has wonderful stories to tell in each wall).
