“Sandwich Nirvana”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

This corner store sandwich joint is one of those local treasures that seems to be carving (#pork pun) a name for itself as a must-visit eatery for the well informed traveller. The interior is modest with a smattering of cramped tables just off the bar. Outside is a more airy alfresco seating area with umbrellas. The famous pork sandwiches, served all day, are exceptional and redefine the 'melt-in-your-mouth' experience. Just don't expect a warm, casual welcome from the staff - they've all got jobs to do and they're all focussed on doing them! Consider yourself lucky if you arrive ahead of the inevitable queue that can form quickly during the busier meal-time hours of the day. And be aware that when it comes to these sandwiches, one is never enough!

A must in Porto. Must try the sandwich of pernil and queijo da
Serra with a glass of Espadal wine. Very traditional food.

“best pork and sheep milk cheese sandwiches”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Loved this place, an absolute must for anyone visiting Porto. The best pork and sheep milk cheese sandwiches ever made! Very austere setting which is very local, does not feel like a touristy place which I really like when travelling.

“Typical place and food!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Voted like one of the most typical place in Porto, "Casa Guedes" offers the best sandwiches (SANDES) of the city. The place is very rustic and the food is homemade. I suggest the "Sande de Pernil" (Sandwich of roasted pork with sauce). It isn't a place for lovers of fine cuisine or total hygiene, but it is highly recommended to anyone who wants to know the heart of Porto.
