Throughout the centuries, Portuguese food never stopped to evolve by adding new recipes and new ingredients. Every dish and every bite will take you back in time to the roman empire, to the moors, and the age of discoveries.
Each era in Portugal's history shaped its food, and the country is well-known for its wealth of seafood, spices, and olive oil. The national dish is Bacalhau, which stands for dried Codfish.
Traditionally, breakfast is just coffee and bread. However, lunch is a big deal. It lasts up to two hours and mostly served between noon and three o'clock. Dinner is generally served late after 8 pm.
