Do it like the Portuguese….
The Portuguese often eat their breakfast in the local “Pastelaria” or the pub. You find these places anywhere for a café, espresso, sandwich or pastry. The lunch is the main meal of the day, a warm Almoço, outside the house in one of the many restaurants. The daily menu is popular en very economical, with soup as starter, a drink and coffee often included.
Around the clock of 16.30 hours, the Portuguese have their “lanche”; Snack time! they eat a sandwich or a Bifina, bread topped with warm meat. The diner is between 20 and 21 hours. Mostly a well filled vegetable soup and a piece of meat.
