The BEST FRANCESINHA in PORTO? Portuguese Food & Francesinha Recipe

  • katma 20 Haz 2018
  • Portuguese food is all pretty delicious, but if there's one food you have to try in Porto, it's Francesinha! This traditional Portuguese dish if one of the best foods in Porto - and maybe the entire world! Come and find what Francesinha is in this food video.
    After eating Francesinha in Porto, I also looked up a Francesinha recipe to find out what is in the famous Francesinha sauce. It's hard to tell from a taste test alone, but the Francesinha sauce actually contains beer! Here's a recipe I found:
    Every Francesinha recipe seems to be a little different so it's definitely worth trying at least a few different Francesinha restaurants in Porto. Cafe Santiago is the famous one that will probably be recommended to you but this one, Santa Francesinha, turned out to be my favourite.
    That said, every Francesinha is a good Francesinha, and it's definitely my favourite food in Porto, my favourite food in Portugal and one of my favourite foods in the world.
    Of course, I couldn't visit Portugal without eating a pastel de nata, so I also try this other famous Portugese food after the francesinha. Needless to say, I was pretty full - and VERY happy! :)
    Portuguese food - especially the food in Porto - gets a big thumbs up from me! Make sure you try a Francesinha in Porto if you ever visit and let me know what you think.

    We're back to two videos per week! As I mentioned in my first live video, I'm a few weeks (and a few countries) behind right now. I'm taking 2-3 weeks off while I visit family and playing catch-up on here while I do. I've also been SO busy on press trips and blogging assignments that I wanted to focus on creating rather editing and uploading. So it's a little bit behind, but I hope you enjoy the videos! :) And if you want live updates, I post daily on Instagram stories:

    I came home from Porto last night I absolutely loved it. Francesinha & Superbock was easily my favourite thing in Porto. I went to cafe Santiago that was the best francesinha I had in Porto. Porto is easily one of my favourite cities in the world although I was only there for a 5 day solo trip. So much to do in such a small amount of time. I agree you need to eat francesinha on an empty stomach. I used to have two coffee’s in the morning with a pastel de nata

      As much as it pains me... I'm going to have to join too, if I'm ever going to be fit enough for the hikes I have planned this year & then next year, I'm planning to walk & document the entirety of The Pennine Way.
      Currently moving house to Sheffield & once that's done, I'll be launching my channel, 'Kingsnake Studios'.... finally :P

    I may have mentioned it only once in the past..........the journey towards 300lbs is alive and well.......poor Brendan with his intent to become more "fit" in his two deserve each other, and I hope that by seeing his daily video logs, I can assume that he hasn't succumbed to the foods of the world........... ;-)

      OK, I’m waiting for you in Eastbourne ;)
      So the plan is to eat a francesinha and then we’ll go for a walk to take some photos of the pier and Seven Sisters. Hopefully that will be enough to burn some calories because we have to go
      back to the restaurant for the pastel de nata :O

    Jodie, you have disappointed me. (Only kidding). When you said you were going to show us the best food in Porto I was expecting large grilled Portuguese sardines (yummie) and you ended up eating Francesinha which you said tasted of spaghetti hoops!! Yuk. Ah well you made up for it with that delicious looking custard tart. Lovely vlog again.

      Thanks for the comment. I talk about this in my "we need to talk" video a few weeks ago, but I will never be able to post daily or in real-time because this is only a small part of the work I do. Sorry you feel that way, but thank you for watching anyway.
