Portuguese and Algarve Cuisine to Try – Spectacular Portuguese and Algarve Cuisine


Regardless of whether a person is truly crazy about food or not, exploring an exotic cuisine can be a very fulfilling and enjoyable experience. Every nation has a unique culinary identity and no two are the same. One of the most interesting cuisines to sample is Portuguese and Algarve, the latter refers to dishes from the southernmost region of Portugal. This region is renowned as a tourism destination, and if you’re ever taking a vacation in many luxury retreats the locale has to offer, such as the Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort, be sure to indulge in as many Vilamoura Restaurants as possible to treat your gastronomic senses.


Its best to start off any culinary adventure with an appetiser, and probably the best one to do so with would be Zanahorias Aliñadas. A very simplistic dish, this delicacy consists of chopped carrots that have been tossed with olive oil, vinegar, garlic, oregano and some cumin. The flavour that results is unique and indulgent. Camarão à Casinha is another essential starter and consists of prawns in a rich sauce garlic-tomato sauce.


Portuguese cuisine is heavily based around sea-food, and one of the most essential traditional meals to sample is Bacalhau à Brás which consists of salted cod fish, potatoes, eggs and olives. Another incredible sea-food dish is Cataplana which is seasonal fish, various seafood, potatoes, chilli and onions cooked into a stew. An average portion of this is easily enough for two people.


A meal would not be complete without dessert, and one of the most delicious yet simplistic treats to try out are Flan, which are little tarts that contain either custard or cream-caramel. Bola de Bolacha is essential a mix between a biscuit pudding and a cake, and is easily one of the most genius inventions in the world of sweet treats.


If you ever find yourself in Portugal, be sure to sample the local food.
