Traditional Old World Dining To Be Found At Presuntisco Restaurant
All along the stretch of the Praca da Ribeira, as well as extending outward from the riverfront, you can still see scenes of the old world Porto. The buildings seem to lean together, holding each other up with age, while their inhabitants cheerfully squabble and gossip over endless lines of laundry. Here is the city that you do not see on the postcards, the real denizens of a timeless age that flourish in spite of what life may throw at them. And it is here that you will find the Presuntisco Restaurant, one of the best Porto restaurant sources for good, hearty, real Portuguese cuisine.
Tucked away amongst the interior design firms and Internet cafes, this Porto restaurant operates out of the stone cellar in one of those timeless buildings. The aromas mingle with the sounds of fishing boats returning from the sea, and the wine merchants across the river calling their wares to the world. This is the heart of Porto itself, and the menu here reflects that.
At the Presuntisco Restaurant you will find freshly baked garlic bread, with marinated olives, roasted dates, and aromatic ham all wrapped together as a popular mainstay. Caldo verde, the traditional cabbage soup, as well as Alheira de Caça, venison sausage over rice, food that has been enjoyed for generations, makes up the main menu at this fine establishment. Affordable, authentic and welcoming, just like the city itself.
