A happy coincidence
May 2017 • Couples
On our first day in the city, we knew we had to sample the city's cheese and wine. We spotted this unassuming little hole-in-the-wall place and were instinctively drawn towards it.

Inside, we asked which cheese we should try and which wine was good. Somehow this evolved into the most pleasant half hour one could wish for in a new city. The lady tending the shop was an absolute dream and I'm upset that I don't remember her name. She walked us through the cheese of Porto, gave us recommendations of wine based on our taste (which turned out to be spot on - it was delicious!) and best of all, she asked to see our map and circled everywhere we should visit outside of the tourist zones.

She was so helpful, friendly and downright charming. We followed through with her suggestions the following days and saw some great places and bars that we would have missed.

Thank you for making our trip that much better!

PS. The cheese and wine were beyond divine.

Dreamy cheeses with a smile

So we stopped into Amaral just because the cheeses in the window looked so good, and I am so glad we did. We ended up going two more times during our stay in Porto to get fresh supplies of cheese. Portuguese cheeses are really good with a nice range of styles.

Carla (the owner?) was very friendly and helpful. I think we could have asked her about anything and she would have helped us out. She is definitely someone who seems to enjoy their work.

Besides cheese, they also have meats, some desserts, wines...it's a great shop.

Carla had recommended a wine, Meio Queijo, and it was lovely, so was the cheese, Ovelha Meia Cura . Thank you Carla.

Great cheese selection

Great tasting of various cheeses.
The owner (gentlemen) provides great service and is very knowledgeable on Portuguese cheeses. We had the best Artesanal dipping cheese (Queijo Curado de Ovelha). Goes well with fresh bread, nuts and of course; Portuguese red wine. We wish we had this cheese shop at home.
