A thread about the city of Porto

Going there week after next for Paredes de Coura festival and will have a few days knocking about the city on my own beforehand.

Gis your recs. Particularly interested in port tasting and nice veggie food.

BrasĂŁo Cervejaria Coliseu Baixa Is great. Can book a table too to avoid queues.

And you can get veggie Francesinha a few places (including above).

Head over the river for all the port bars in the world or if you have a full day get a train to the douro valley at the actual vineyards.

it’s nice. can’t really remember what we did. went up a tower of some kind.

went with a vegetarian and the options seemed pretty quite bad in general but we might have just picked bad restaurants for every meal we had

Went wandering around the Ouro neighbourhood and got a knife pulled on me while I had €500 in cash in my wallet. I just ducked behind the lad and legged it.

(That happened on my first day there. Absolutely loved the city otherwise, bar the francesinhas.)

Oh fuck! :open_mouth: Fair play getting out of that man, and great to hear it didn’t put you off!

lol at you and mwt having very different opinions on francesinhas! :smiley:

I was very lucky that I was fit after playing three games of football a week for the previous two years. Don’t go wandering around there!

I think I just got unlucky with the francesinha I had, others reported better things. Would recommend walking across the Luís I Bridge if you’re going to the port warehouses. Being able to see through the metal plates on the bridge to the water below was bananas!
