Sandwich Place
“Join the locals and queue for a sandwich ham or ham and cheese. Order inside! No service on the terrace. You'll see and taste here the real basic Portuguese version. Preferably with a Super Bock beer on the terrace.”

“The Rua das Flores has long been the city's best street for opening a new business. And if it's a cool, well decorated, lively restaurant, then success is practically guaranteed. The long communal table does have a hint of the school canteen about it – but don't worry, this is not cafeteria food. Pretty much everything is good here: from appetisers such as smoked salmon and quail eggs to larger dishes (which you can share) such as the Lafões veal. The latter is one of this busy street's highlights. Tips: – The desserts here are among Porto's most creative. Order the biscuit cake, served by the centimetre. – The restrooms have a 6 and a 9 on the doors. Yeah, we're not sure either. ”

“In terms of environment, the Cantinho do Avillez in Porto is also a friendly, welcoming and relaxed space. How could it not be, quality is a priority. As in the Cantinho de Lisboa, the cuisine is inspiring with influences of travel. The menu offers some of the Cantinho's successful dishes like the Peixinhos da Horta with Tartar Sauce; Scallops marinated with avocado; Sautéed Chicken Livers with onion compote and Port; Cod slivers, loose crumbs, BT egg and explosive olives; the Risotto Portobello mushrooms with smoked bacon, parmesan and basil; the Barrosa PDO burger with onions, foie gras and fries; the Hazel 3; ... ”

“One of the best "Francesinha" in Porto, but is also a beautiful place. Better book on week-ends. Careful : everything on the table, that you didn't ask for, is "you pay what you eat"”

“there's the menu, full of great choices – such as chicken bordelaise, octopus’ fillets with rice or the perfect appetizer, cod cakes. But we can also mention the desserts (all homemade) or the outdoors tables, strategically facing the Douro river. And then there's the great service – Mr. António Coelho has been doing this since he was 11 · ”

“Rua da Flores is certainly one of the most touristic streets in the city of Porto. It wasn’t always like this. This street, that crosses São Bento Station and São Domingos Square, was the old street of merchants and aristocrats. Crossing Rua das Flores is not always an easy task, given the amount of people entering and leaving the shops, grocery stores, and cafes, on the terraces. Until today, the street has maintained its original profile and architecture of the XVII, XVIII e XIX centuries, and this is where one of the most emblematic baroque façades of Porto can be seen, the Misericordia Church (1749-1750), rebuilt by the architect Nicolau Nasoni.”

“ANOTHER SANDWICH YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS We know, by now you are thinking that Porto only has to offer bread, cheese and meat. Sorry, but “Venham mais 5” also had to be present in this list. Its famous sandwiches are made with steak and “queijo da serra” and since it is close to Guedes you can simply have one in each place.”
