I have been saying I want to plan a trip to Portugal for years and this year I am finally doing it (early-mid summer). $ is not a huge issue. I have already been to the Sintra area in the winter months. My spouse and I are pretty big foodies, but we enjoy local fare, simple country meals, and little known places with a story the best. I usually start planning trips based my fantasies of great meals. If you have been to a great town or two or three and you could go back I would love to hear some feedback. If you would recommend a city/region/place to stay in Portugal, based on your food experiences, where would you go? Thanks!
