Padaria Ribeiro Porto – Pastry perfected over 100 years

"Padaria Ribeiro" isn't just a bakery - it's an icon of the city! I imagine they have been perfecting their pastry recipes since the 19th century...

"Padaria" means bakery in Portuguese, but Ribeiro is much more, it's an icon in Porto!

It was founded back in the 19th century and has been in its original place near Clérigos for almost 90 years, even though they have expanded to other locations, such as Foz.

They are most well-known by their pastry. I just can imagine they have been perfecting their recipes during all this time, as - literally - anything you try is simply delicious! I think I prefer the "salted" pastry, instead of the "sweet" one.

The salted pastry has either meat (chicken, veal, pork, mixed) or smoked hams/meats and cheese. It's difficult for me to mention the best ones, as I like them all! For example, ask for "empadas" (small pies) either made of veal or chicken, "Pastel de Chaves" (larger ones, mixed meat), "Pastel de Carne" (literally "meat pastry", mixed meat, different recipe), or "lanche" (either simple, only with different smoked hams/meats, or mixed, meaning it also has cheese). And one of the best things is that they are baking continuously so it's very likely you can get any of those just out the oven! (watch out for mouths burns!)

Then they have the cakes and biscuits. I've never bought large cakes there, but they look as tasty as everything else. I prefer to buy biscuits and cookies, preferably mixed ones, in a large paper pack, like in the old days. Wonderful!

They have a new seating room and an outside seating area (great for sunny days).
