While you’re in Rua do Almada, stop at Tascö. It’s one of those places that’s sure to teach you a few things about Portuguese food and Porto’s hospitality. Tascö is the epitome of a cool tavern.
The subtle hints are in the decor: the long benches, the unassuming, scribbled chalkboard wall, the woody coziness; all tastefully balanced with lighter, more modern elements.
As far as service goes, simply put: no one does it better than Tascö! Expect to be greeted like an old friend. The staff will make you feel at home, they’ll make sure you’re enjoying your experience and having fun while you’re there (and I suspect you’ll be there for a while). A word of advice: make reservations. They’re always fully booked, and there’s a reason for that!
As far as the food goes, Tascö will give you a meal to write home about. Opt for the tapas and embark on the Portuguese food voyage – rojões, morcela, patanisca e alheira are among some of the things you won’t find anywhere else in the world. Try them!
There’s also the option for main dishes, if you prefer.
Enjoy your meal with a glass (or more) of good Portuguese wine and finish with a lovely, homemade dessert. Cheers!
