Welcome to Porto
Rolled into Porto this afternoon, a very warm afternoon. I took a minor siesta and then set out to explore Porto. I headed down to the river, Porto is very hilly.
Over the last few years, due to my blood sugar issues, I’ve rarely eaten bread, rice or pasta. On this trip, I’ve been eating a lot of carbs and not a lot of protein so I’ve been jonesing for meat. I fixed that tonight with a unique dish to Porto, a Francesinha. A Francesinha is a Portuguese sandwich originally from Porto, made with bread, wet-cured ham, linguiça, fresh sausage like chipolata, steak or roast meat and covered with melted cheese and a hot thick tomato and beer sauce served with french fries mine had a fried egg bonus.
All in all a nice night and some good photos, enjoy – Rev Kane
