What to Eat on your Algarve Holidays
Grilled sardines and grilled chicken are typical Portuguese foods that are well known to all visitors to Portugal. But to get the true flavour of Portuguese cuisine have a dinner in a cataplana restaurant on your Algarve holidays.
The cataplana is the name for both the dish and the cooking utensil used for cooking it. You can get lamb cataplana, chicken, fish or a combination of seafood. It’s often cooked with potatoes, tomatoes, onions and wine and seasoned with herbs or spices.
This tasty dish may look like a stew, but it is different in that the cooking time is much faster.
