Porto Caco – A homely Portuguese experience

With meat that comes from a mountainous part of Portugal (Arouca) and typical Madeira bread produced in the region of Espinho, this combination couldn’t be more Portuguese — and surprising.

This is a family place and that’s what captivates me the most. The couple Maria Isabel and Luis were motivated by their son Guilherme to create a place they love to work at after having some issues in that regard. You can feel the love and the deep care for everything they’ve created here. It’s a really nice way to understand the Portuguese culture through its flavors and its hard-working, simple and loving people.

The typical bread, “bolo do caco”, is made from sweet potato and has less gluten in its dough. However, besides that, it’s not very sweet and is really tasty with other types of spices. They have different kinds of burgers or “pregos” (as Portuguese people calls a simpler sandwich): beef burger, salmon burger, tuna steak, sirloin steak, fillet mignon and braised portobello. All come with fries. Besides that, they serve extra sides, salads, desserts and some starters. On their lunch menu (€7), you can taste some soup + main dish + water/craft beer (fino)/lemonade. If you want to have a glass of wine instead of those options, just add €1.

I’m more than certain that every burger is delicious and everything is homemade – so respecting the place and it’s family atmosphere is important! Cooking is love made visible!
