Description

Francesinha,
Not for the fainthearted, Porto’s unique culinary staple demands an empty stomach. Inspired by the croque monsieur, the “little Frenchie’” belies its name. Little it is not – this is a doorstep-sized sandwich of layered pork, smoked sausage, beef and cheese, topped off with a tomato, beer and cheese sauce and an optional fried egg. And if that isn’t filling enough, chips and a draught beer are usually served on the side.
