Tuna soup


This might be a bit of an odd question, but I hope somebody can help me out.

About twenty years ago I was in Vila Real and I was in a café/bistro and had an absolutely delicious tuna soup.

Now I'm going back to the Algarve soon and would like to try this soup again.

If anybody can help me with the name or location of the bistro or the name of the soup it'd be really helpful!

I'm not sure if this cafe/bistro still exists, the only things I can remember is that it was on a corner in central Vila Real and there were photos of old-style tuna-fishing (small fishing boats in a circle with a net inbetween forcing the tuna to the surface) on the walls.

The tuna soup itself was filled to the brim with tuna and potato (maybe other vegetables?) and it was a bit orangy.

Can anyone help me on my way? :)

"Sopa de Atum"

The orange color were probably the tomatoes used in it.

It's not a very common soup here. In fact I've never seen it on the menu here in the Algarve. I feel it is a Brazilian recipe. But never mind, you're looking for the corner restaurant in Vila Real. Could have been: Coração De Coral but that's on the front near the river.

If you would like the recipe, send me a pm?
