Ameijoas à Bulhao Pato

It is quite accurate to call this Algrave’s Signature dish, thus available at any local restaurant or Algarve resort. This is dish, rich in flavor prepared with clams, garlic, onion, coriander, olive oil and white wine. Usually served with crunchy white bread this is a must try for the ultimate Portuguese experience.

 

 

Caldo Verde

This is a very brothy soup cooked with chorizo sausage, potato, garlic and curly kale. Its thick, tasty and you will definitely want more than one serving.

 

 

Frango Piri-Piri-
