Portugal has it all-- beautiful beaches, perfect weather
and outstanding cuisine. The Portuguese don’t mess around when it comes to
food. Their cuisine is simple, yet bursting with rich flavors. In Portugal, you’ll
find farm-to-table freshness and wonderfully prepared vegetables and meats,
fish and poultry that are grilled or fried to perfection. Sprinkle in the
postcard beautiful settings, sumptuous wines, and cold beer and you’ll quickly
immerse yourself in the Portuguese good life.
The next time you’re on a golf trip in Portugal we suggest

Fried Fish – In Portugal, be aware, when your order fried
fish they don’t de-bone the fish for you. Once you learn how to eat the fish

is so good you’ll probably order it more than once on your excursion.

Grilled Steak with Egg – Ihop isn’t the only place to get
steak and eggs. The Portuguese grilled steak with egg is cooked with fresh
olive oil and garlic making it juicy and irresistible. You’ll often receive a
side of rice, salad and potatoes. Visit: Principe do Calhariz

Portuguese Steakhouse Meat & Sides – If you go to an upscale
Portuguese Steakhouse, this will be your best meal. Remember, even if you’ve
been to a Brazilian Steakhouse, the Portuguese basically taught the Brazilians.
There is nothing better than sitting at a table with your favorite friends and
playing partners, sipping a delicious local wine and being served succulent
grilled meats off long metal swords. Let’s not forget about the side dishes,
which include: fresh black beans, rice, grilled plantains, roasted potatoes,
and chopped tomato with onions. Visit: Restaurante Figueiral
Wine & Beer – The Portuguese are known for their
fantastic cold beer and delicious wines. Don’t forget to enjoy a Super Bock or
Sagres on tap after your round of golf or a nice, chilled Vinho Verde white
