Eating snails is one of the most popular dishes in the summer in Portugal, eaten by locals. Usually served in the middle of the afternoon, after a day on the beach, served with a cold beer. Just like the Burgundy region of France and it’s famous escargots, here we have also fresh snails, caught on the lettuce and ready to be cooked.
You can buy snails a little bit everywhere in the summer, mostly in local markets. You can either cook them at home, or you will find most restaurants will have a sign saying “Temos caracois” – We have snails!
