A Food experience across the border in Porto, Portugal by Jonathon Lipsin
RESTAURANTE FLÔR DO BALDO
Today I was taken by my friends here in Porto, Portugal to a working man's restaurant seemingly in the middle of nowhere. It is by a river with big trees not unlike those in California looming outside the windows of a industrial style, huge dining room, There is wood fired oven and long banquet type tables all with dishes set upside down as is the custom here.
True enough, clumps of working people huddled down at disparate distances in the dining room over mysterious bowls and plates of steaming food.
