Beautiful roast pork sandwich with local cheeses. Excellent value. Try the mixed meat and cheese platter with some sangria. Authentic local food. FAB

Very tasty pork sandwiches. Do mind stopping by and grabbing one or two. I had the regular one and one with melted cheese. Both very good, but I think I liked the regular one more. Very cheap (2.75€ regular 3.75@ with melted cheese). Good spot for a quick lunch or late afternoon snack. It's not a big place, and at... More

After walking uphill for half an hour only to find they are closed on Sunday, we returned the next day and had one of the tastiest pork sandwiches ever. I had mine with the soft, ripe local sheep cheese with a bowl of great house soup and a a glass if vihno verde( soup and wine 1 euro each). Best... More

This corner store sandwich joint is one of those local treasures that seems to be carving (#pork pun) a name for itself as a must-visit eatery for the well informed traveller. The interior is modest with a smattering of cramped tables just off the bar. Outside is a more airy alfresco seating area with umbrellas. The famous pork sandwiches, served... More

A must in Porto. Must try the sandwich of pernil and queijo da Serra with a glass of Espadal wine. Very traditional food.

Loved this place, an absolute must for anyone visiting Porto. The best pork and sheep milk cheese sandwiches ever made! Very austere setting which is very local, does not feel like a touristy place which I really like when travelling.

Voted like one of the most typical place in Porto, "Casa Guedes" offers the best sandwiches (SANDES) of the city. The place is very rustic and the food is homemade. I suggest the "Sande de Pernil" (Sandwich of roasted pork with sauce). It isn't a place for lovers of fine cuisine or total hygiene, but it is highly recommended to... More

Sandwich aficionados looking for a local alternative to the overloaded Francesinha; look no further. This unassuming joint dishes up an utterly delicious masterpiece on bread known as Sandes Pernil. The absolutely perfect roast pork is carved at the bar and paired with a strong yet creamy local cheese on a lightly toasted bap. The only way to improve on this... More
