Gastronomy

The Silver coast is especially for the fish lover a true paradise. Here you find several dishes with sardines, codfish and fresh shellfish. Among the choice on the menu you can also find meat dishes (carne), fish dishes (peixe) and chicken (frango). While having a coffee you must surely try Pasteis de nata which originates from Belem. You can find this delicious pastry with pudding and a hint of cinnamon, on almost every street corner. Portugal also produces some nice red, white and rosé wines. Among the well know regions you will find Douro, Alentejo and Dao each of them with their typical characteristics.
