Portuguese produce is the star of Almeja’s menu, a recently opened “casual fine dining” restaurant, as its owner and chef João Cura defines it. Try the oven-roasted wild mushrooms with parsnips, the fresh fish with sweet potatoes, lard and butter sauce, and the pork cheeks in wine sauce with broccoli and carrots, which João makes according to his grandmother’s recipe. For dessert, have the French toast, which has become a Porto classic, and is served here with caramelised bacon and smoked milk ice cream.
