Cheap-Real Portuguese Food :)

The best way to understand a place is to taste its food, in my opinion.

So, I look for restaurants which are cheap and serve real, typical Portuguese food. They may be hidden restaurants, maybe not many people know it.

Dou you have any recommendation?

Hi there! You are totally right!

I would recommend you:

- Restaurante Cufra Grill at Edifício Transparente with a view over the sea which serves typical portuguese dishes as well as the famous "Francesinha", an Oporto's speciality;

- Restaurante Abadia ( this last is not so cheap) which serves the best of portugueses cuisine

- and then try "A margem" near Afurada (on the other side of river) where you can choice the best fish and shellfish specialities;

- For a gourmet cheap experience go to Restaurante Casa da Música which has a 10,50 euros menu at lunch!

Hope you have a great time!

Don't worry, you will have plenty of choice.

When walking around, look out for the many small cafés offering "Prato do Dia" or "Dish of the Day" - this will normally be a cheap basic meal for as little as four euro.

Or for sometyhing more specific, Take the metro to Mercado station in Matosinhos and look for the area around Rua Herois de França which had dozens of restaurants doing fresh fish on the barbeque. You won't get more authentic than that.
