Food is an important part of the culture of Portugal, and locals love to spend many hours each day sitting around the dining table with family and friends. Restaurants serve dinner until midnight, as the people of Porto tend to eat dinner late in the evening and meals often take a long time with many small dishes to share on the table. The city of Porto is known for its delicious and fresh seafood that features in many of the local dishes. One of the most popular local dishes is bacalhau com natas, which is codfish baked in a rich and flavorful cream sauce. To try this and other authentic Porto cuisines, head to Adega Vila Mea on the Rua dos Caldeireiros. This restaurant serves a variety of traditional Porto dishes, featuring seafood and pork. Those seeking an upmarket dining experience may want to try O Paparico, where every dish features a prominent Portuguese element which is enhanced with modern and innovative cooking methods. Vegetarians should go to Casa da Horta which offers traditional Porto dishes made using only vegetarian ingredients. The restaurant only uses organic and local ingredients, and offers a communal method of cooking where everyone can get involved.
