We will start our walk through town at Batalha square, right in the center of the city. From here we will make our way through one of our favorite areas in town, Fontaínhas. We will reach the beautiful and peaceful cemetery of Prado do Repouso, a wonderful example of architecture, sculpture and quietness, right in the middle of an ever growing city. This will lead us to the oriental part of town, where Carlos lives. Here you should be ready to surrender to the hands of Carlos and his food selection and preparation. He will present you several typical dishes, which include starters (bread, cheese, olive oil, olives and soup or salad), main course (fish dish) and a traditional dessert. The meal will be accompanied by wine from the Douro region. Porto is a town where people go out of their way to take you to your right way. We hope this trip through this part of town and through the flavours that we propose will feel right to you.
We became friends through a shared enthusiasm for the arts and culture. Mariana has a degree in interactive music and sound design. She works with sounds and images that we can find around the city. Carlos has a degree in graphic design, but his true passion is to cook and explore the stories and emotions around food and meals. The idea for this proposal grew from our will to show Porto and taste food in a way that feels close to us, combining tradition with contemporaneity and intuition. We want to show Porto in a very original way, with an off the beaten track experience. Come and join us!
