In Portugal, there were plenty of sweets to try. The national favorite is Nata. It’s made of a custard in a pie crust. It’s delicious and light. I had mine with an espresso which in Portugal is called a ‘cafe solo’. My cafe solo was served with cinnimon and it paired nicely with my nata. Nata is usually priced under one euro.
Another national dish I tried was Sopa de Pedra or Stone Soup. This hearty delicacy is worth the five euro price it commands. It’s made of beans, potatoes, veggies, and meat.
