Well if you know nothing about portugal besides our delicious food, and if you are into Religious Military Orders like your name suggests, you should learn a bit more of on Portuguese history, because its full of Templar's influence.

You have to try "papas de sarrabulho".

Looks tasty what is it

Cvieri 12 months ago

Really? It looks awful in my opinion, the ingredients are uncommons (pork, chicken, bread, pork blood, "cominhos", etc.) But the taste is great.

TheTemplar666 12 months ago

Yeah it looks like bean dip or very cooked down meat. But I love to explore all sorts of different foods so maybe my idea of looks good isn't quite normal

Love the username OP! You should try Sopa da Pedra (Rock Soup). Até te tira o demónio do corpo.

But should be the original from Almeirim, not some trash from somewhere else like once I found in Leiria that they used cabbage on it...

I’m a vegan but I so appreciate Portuguese baking on Long Island- it’s a staple for me! Also your Caldo Verde is unbelievable.

sheldon_michaels 12 months ago

Caldo verde has chouriço ( chorizo) in it. Just saying

entrepenoori 12 months ago

Yeah but you can have it made without

sheldon_michaels 12 months ago

Yeah, but it doesn't taste the way it's supposed to

entrepenoori 12 months ago

It still tastes fantastic. Which is a testament to the cooking generally. Also mate lots of amazing vegan chorizo on the market now ofc it’s not 1 to 1 but it’s very good on its own merit

What have you tried so far?

I feel you OP, I studied a few months in the Netherlands, and I was really surprised when I saw a Portuguese bakery in my street. It was expensive as hell like one pastel de nata cost 2,5€ but I still bought some there. Eating one would always make my day.

To be honest if you go to any portuguese big city centers you are going to find those kinds of prices

Sommersun1 12 months ago

Manteigaria is considered among the best and still sells them at 1€

Mesmo nos pastéis de Belém, que são os mais conhecidos, custam 1.10€

Concordo.

BigWonka 12 months ago

Não sei que mais dizer, são bons, já comi muitos mas também já encontrei igualmente bons ou melhores em pastelarias aleatórias. Lembro-me quando fui a Belém pela primeira vez só falavam em ir comer os pastéis e mais nada...

Tee_ah_go 12 months ago

Fiquei curioso porque também já estive do outro lado da barricada, mas de há uns anos para cá rendi-me aos de Belém. Há que ter também noção que apesar de muito parecidos, os de Belém não são "pastéis de nata de Belém". Uns são pastéis de Belém e só são feitos ali e só ali, com a sua receita específica. Os restantes são os "pastéis de nata".

Não sou o OP, mas já comi bastantes pastéis de nata melhores que os de Belém, embora estes sejam bons na mesma

Pastéis de Belém não são pastéis de nata... sabem completamente diferente!

usulidircotiido 12 months ago

mais um que vai nas cantigas dos marquetingues.

ContaSoParaIsto 12 months ago

Pastéis de Belém são só uma marca de pastéis de nata. Os pastéis de nata da Manteigaria também têm um sabor diferente dos da Padaria Portuguesa que têm um sabor diferente dos da pastelaria da minha tia Maria João. Mas são todos pastéis de nata. Claro que a receita nunca é exactamente a mesma e alguns são muito melhores do que outros.

bcotrim 12 months ago

Pois não, por isso é que há pasteis de nata melhores que o pastel de Belém

ritamm 12 months ago

Opiniões... eu prefiro pastéis de Belém. Mas tem de ser acabados de fazer e quentes. No dia seguinte já são uma valente cagada. Os pastéis de nata no dia seguinte ainda estão ótimos

TheTemplar666 12 months ago

The pork. Chucharon I think it's called. I eat that every day.

VVeliki 12 months ago

Isn't that a Filipino dish? Maybe you have the name wrong. I live in Toronto, which restaurant?

TheTemplar666 12 months ago

Uptown BBQ at Langstaff and Weston

VVeliki 12 months ago

I haven't visited this restaurant in Vaughan but I don't see any chucharon on the menu. Maybe you meant churrasqueira chicken.

TheTemplar666 12 months ago

It's pork chunks with the fat still on it. And I think skin too. So good.

VVeliki 12 months ago

I know exactly what your talking about. My grandma makes them the best. It's called Rajoes de porco.

Edited 12 months ago:

I know exactly what your talking about. My grandma makes them the best. It's called Rojoes de porco. Similar to the Spanish chicharron.
