Porto is home to world-class chefs and Michelin-star restaurants. It is often regarded as Portugal’s food capital, so there are plenty of mouth-watering options to choose from.
1. Casa de Chá da Boa Nova (Michelin 2-star restaurant)
Built on the rocks, hand in hand with the sea, there is Casa de Chá da Boa Nova. It is one of our favorite places to eat – not only because of the yummy food but also because of the welcoming vibe of Matosinhos.
Let’s put it this way:
- Portugal is a seafood-crazy country;
- and Matosinhos, where this Michelin-starred restaurant is located, is Portugal’s seafood capital.
Here you’ll find the best the Atlantic ocean has to offer.
Casa de Chá da Boa Nova was recently awarded the second Michelin star and we’ve talked with the Chef that leads the kitchen: Chef Rui Paula. In this interview, he revealed some of his thoughts and feelings about food. We got a feeling that foodies will love this interview.
