In a minimalist and welcoming environment, you will find at Essência Lusa traditional Portuguese dishes and snacks, of homemade confection. The project was born in 2015, with the objective of promoting the varied Portuguese gastronomy to the people who visit Porto, deriving its name from it. The dishes to be highlighted are the codfish with bread, octopus in the oven, seafood rice, Francesinha (a sandwich from the city of Porto, consisting of sausage, fresh sausage, ham, cold meats and beef steak, covered with cheese later melted; it is garnished with a tomato, beer and piri-piri sauce and can be served with French fries as a side dish) and the Tripas à Moda do Porto. There is a bet on confection, offering dishes that are cooked in the moment and with high quality products, at competitive prices, but not only. It is part of the Portuguese tradition to receive well and, for that, you can count on the friendliness of the staff in the reception and the service provided to the client.
