Coimbra Food & Budget Accommodation

3 - 4 April 2012       For dinner, we went to Ze Manel dos Ossos Beco do Forno . It is a very small family run restaurant. We read about it but randomly walked in the small street and saw people queuing up for the restaurant to open. Well, 5 minutes waiting. The food was not pretentious. The chief waiter was friendly and funny. We were served with different sorts of cheese and bread, then stewed lamb and pork, with beans, huge portion of potatoe and vegetable. Including house wine and chocolate it costs 30 Euro. The great joy here is the atmosphere, rustic and authentic and jam. The best food in Coimbra is roast pork sandwich by Antonio  (Porto Larga at Rua das Padeiras 35). Wonderful flavour of juicy pork with secret sauce. Yummy! The vegetable soup is also a must-try. Porta Larga - Rua das Padeiras 35 We went to Restaurant Ze Neto, recommended by trip advisor and Lonely Planet but were disappointed. The fish dishes were just OK. Much left
