What you can expect

If you are looking for the best way to know more about the food and flavors of Porto, this tasty experience is right up your alley! Bite by bite, you’ll discover the city through its tastings and local eateries that you shouldn’t miss. Together with a friendly local, you’ll see the authentic side of Porto you have been looking for.

Your delicious journey through Porto will take you to local gems like the daily frequented grocery stores. Here, the locals shop and mingle and you’ll have a chance to catch a glimpse of the local daily life. This experience will take you to two different grocery stores for a complete contrast, one with an urban vibe where you’ll enjoy a cheese tasting and another one, untouched by time with a beautiful & authentic atmosphere where you’ll try a local treat: a walnut in a dried fig.

A food tour of the best local dishes of Porto could not be complete without the delicious pastel de nata. See how this beloved pastry is made right in front of your eyes and then eat it! A freshly baked pastel de nata beats any pastry, guaranteed. Now for a savory pastry, try a ‘bolinho de bacalhau’. This is a must-have appetizer that you can find on every table in Porto, and is considered a “national specialty”. The place you’ll try it is a local’s hangout spot loved for its food, so you bet it will be good!

When Anthony Bourdain visited Porto he found his favorite tasting in this next local hotspot, curious to know what local food made him fall in love with the city? Your favorite local will show you! Here you will also enjoy a ‘Super Bock’, the local beer everyone drinks in Porto.

For a delightful combination of an amazing bread with a special ingredient and a dry-cured ham stop by a local eatery and taste their signature dish. This two-tastings-in-one is the mix you didn’t know you needed, but after it you’ll be glad your foodie local told you all about it. And for a very local tasting, try a flavorful meat stew at a location that only the locals know about.

The best way to end your tasty experience is with a glass of Porto wine with the best view over the city. The location is more than meets the eye and you’ll see that once you are there! Relax and chat with your new local friend and get more foodie recommendations. Eat your way through the city and discover more about Porto. All you have to do is pick your favorite local, let them know your dietary needs and come with an empty stomach!
