Hidden Portugal - travel spots only insiders know about
Fall in love with Portugal

What are those weird beans Portuguese eat with their beer?

That waxy thing that you eat the bean and spit out the skin is called a tremoço. In Portugal tremolos, or Lupini Beans, are a salty snack. You enjoy them by removing the skin in your mouth and tossing the waxy skin away. Tremoços are great with a beer (Sagres or Super Bock). 
 
Most cafes will serve them by the plate with a beer, as they are perfect to as a beer accompaniment on a sunny day, and the shells are loved by pigeons.
