MATOSINHOS, PORTUGAL – Some say that Portugal has the best seafood in the world and today weโ€™re going to find out why. With pristine cold water Atlantic ocean spanning the west and south coasts, Portugal is a seafood paradise. Today weโ€™re eating our way through Matosinhos, a port and fishing town just outside of Porto.

Huge thank you to Taste Porto ( for taking me on this incredible tour – they are the best! Thank you Andrรฉ Apolinรกrio and Ricardo Brochado, it was amazing to hang out with them. Check them out for incredible food tours in Porto.

Mercado Municipal de Matosinhos – The local market is one of the best places to begin your seafood tour. The market is clean and organized and home to extremely fresh seafood of the day. You can also get all sorts of vegetables and fruits while youโ€™re at it.

Restaurante Tito 2 ( – Andre arranged for us to go to one of his favorite seafood restaurants in Matosinhos. Here you can choose the fish you want, and they will grill it, or prepare just the way you want it. The Rodovalho Grelhado – Grilled Turbot was fantastic, as was the Lulas – Grilled Squid, and the Pargo Grelhado – Grilled Porgi.

Restaurante Os Lusรญadas ( – But the highlight of this Portugal seafood tour was Restaurante Os Lusรญadas, an upper scale seafood restaurant that serves the absolute best and freshest seafood you can imagine. It was indeed among the best quality seafood Iโ€™ve had in my life. We had Amรชijoas ร  Bolhรฃo Pato – Clams Portuguese Style, a huge seafood cocktail platter for 4, Arroz de lavagante – Lobster Rice, and Robalo ao sal – Sea Bass Salt Flambรฉe!

If you love seafood, Matosinhos is a place you have to visit when youโ€™re in Portugal!

Thank you again to Andrรฉ and Ricardo from Taste Porto (!
