Trip Itinerary

Stop #1 – Loja dos Pastéis de Chaves

The day begins with a warm flaky pastry of Chaves. A savory or sweet-tasting (your choice) that will provide you with the energy and curiosity to start your exploration of Porto.

Stop #2 – Bolhão Wine House

Soak in the energy of the market while enjoying some traditional and amazing sardines and learning about the cured meat tradition (sampling some from one of the market's charcuteries) and experiencing two wines (one from Vinho Verde wine region and one from Douro).

Stop #3 – Confeitaria Moura

Since 1892 Moura family has held the recipe to a unique pastry: Jesuita!

Stop #4 – Taxca

Savor this locals-only spot with a cured pork sandwich and a glass of the oh-so-typical espadal.

Stop #5 – Fábrica da Picaria

Grab a glass of their home-brew and pull up a chair to enjoy the ambiance of this craft beer brewpub. This place is part of our Craft Beer & Food Tour, and here you'll taste a very traditional "Bifana", one of the main sandwiches in the country, enjoyed from north to south, paired with a cold beer.

Reviews

The self-guided food tour more than lived up to the expectations. The app w as easy to use and the spots well-chosen. We bought some extra goodies at the Bolhão Wine House - canned sardines!

Interesting, educative, delicious and fun! As a bonus I was given top recommendations on where to go and what to do on the rest of the trip. If you’re into food and visit Porto don’t miss this.
