- 1- Bacalhau
This is a very popular dish made of salted cod. Where Portugal has such a large access to the ocean, seafood is very popular and easy to get hold of. Bacalhau can be cooked in a variety of different ways, so expect to see different regional versions on offer such as salted cod with potatoes, onion, and topped with an egg, sometimes boiled, sometimes scrambled etc. Either way, the results are mouthwatering.
- 2- Cozido Ã Portuguesa
If you're feeling very hungry after taking part in your surf school in Portugal, then reach for the Cozido Ã Portuguesa. It's a type of beef hotpot, filled with potatoes, vegetables and lots of sausages, with rice on the side. Again it can be found throughout Portugal so there will always be different variations to try out.
- 3- PÃ£o de LÃ³
After satiating your appetite for mains, then indulging in something for your sweet tooth has to be done. Try the popular PÃ£o de LÃ³, a sponge cake that is normally flavoured with orange juice, lemon, cinnamon, port wine or Maderia. You'd be forgiven for having to try every flavour you can find.
