This fall, every Portuguese will look for a familiar site on the street corner and squares of the nation - Castanhas Assadas.
Roasted Chestnuts, or Castanhas Assadas, are a Portuguese fall classic. Most typically roasted on open flames, castanhas assadas are a typical food to enjoy in Portuguese cuisine, especially during the fall São Martinho festival celebrations. Castanhas are the perfect amount of soft, sweet, and savory. And they are sold on most busy street corners in the fall and winter. Try a bag, you will not regret it.
