This is one of those places that even if you go once in a lifetime,no matter how young you were at the time you never forget,their specialty is roasted pork and they managed to master that art in ways rarely found anywhere,even though Portugal may not be one of the most popular destinations for Americans (i guess),it's worth extending your trip to Portugal just to go to that specific restaurant,you'll have the best roasted pork of your lifetime.
Pretty much everything they serve is made in-house,breads,wines,desserts,everything.
The local sparkling wine "frisante" i think,is awesome !
Even the local fruits like pears and oranges taste marvelous and at the end they'll send you a check that'll leave you surprised how affordable it is.
You may not like pork,or fish,or even Portugal,but this place is a MUST GO,you'll never forget,i guarantee!

Sucking pig is a very traditional ingredient in Portugal, so we decided to give it a try, and definitely this is the place to visit. roasted in wood oven, comes crispy and flavorful. in case you are driving from the south to northern Portugal, give yourself a break in Mealhada and try this specialty, won't be disappointed.

The setting and view are not what brings people to these restaurants. The potato chips (homemade) are delicious and the "leitão" simply melts in your mouth. The house champagne or one of the many local options tops it up.

Mealhada is the place to go when you are in Portugal craving for sucking pig. You have a lot of restaurants there but Pedro dos Leitões is the best I know... food and service are great! Don't forget to ask for sparkling wine as well!
