Porto is the second largest city in Portugal.  The country takes it’s name from this city, and Port wine also comes from this city.

I have been organising food events in Berlin for some time, and decided try a weekend trip to a food destination.   There was three of us, and we stayed in Porto for a long weekend and explored the food culture.   Porto is unlike, say a tourist overrun Italian city.   It isn’t expensive, the food is tasty, but not as good as the food you’ll find in Florence.

The main attractions in Port are the Port houses.  Strangely enough, most of the Port houses have British names.   While the British didn’t create port, they did help popularise it internationally, and particularly in Britain.

Port is also known for various Cod fish dishes.
