The REAL Portugal!
On arriving in Portugal by train

Portuguese Soup Warms the Soul

Welcome to Portugal, where every meal can start with soup (except breakfast and tea). The most famous may caldo verde - a Portuguese Vichyssoise, made with simply potatoes and couve galega (kale), chouriço and olive oil.

But soups come in all colors - sopa de nabo, made from turnip, sopa de grão - from chick peas, and sopa de pedra - stone soup made with.... everything!

Try the  açorda alentejana, simmered with stale bread, garlic, coriander olive oil and an egg. An açorda de mariscos is a tomato-based seafood soup, and don't miss Portuguese chicken soup - canja de galinha. And then there is caldeirada, a rich fish stew that is sure to please!
