Tour highlights

Francesinha

The Francesinha is one of Porto’s most famous dishes. It is defined as being the ultimate “Portuguese sandwich” that consists of toasted bread filled with ham, sausage and steak, covered by melted cheese and a hot sauce made of tomato, beer and piri-piri. In the end, it is topped with a fried egg paired with french fries. You’ll visit a restaurant which locals claim to have the best francesinha in town.

Local restaurant

If you want to feel like a true “Portuguese”, interact with all kinds of people and enjoy some local food, we know the perfect places for you. One is famous for its ‘Bifana’, a pork sandwich. The secret for its popularity lies in the sauce in which the meat is marinated in. The other for its smoked ham and fried egg sandwich. They are two of the favorite TOP spots, with Portugal’s best snack foods for the chef Anthony Bourdain. A must-try when you’re visiting Oporto.
