Grémio los LeitÕes, Porto

Address: 10 Rua Mouzinho da Silveira

Tel: 351-2-2202-5027

Secreted behind wrought iron gates in a courtyard in Porto's Old Town, this restaurant takes its name from its specialty dish: leitão, or suckling pig. The interior is modern, with a peasant motif—a cart with barrels, bales of hay, pig-shaped clay plates—and every meal begins with a procession of traditional, tasty entradas: generous portions of mussels, tender octopus, tripe with beans, pig's ears, chicken gizzards. Don't fill up because the main course—suckling pig roasted in a wood-burning oven—is sublime, with crisp golden skin, juicy meat, and spicy jus. Wash it down with a slightly sparkling red or white Casa Sarmento Sarmentinho. It's only appropriate to end with a decadent creme con vinho do porto, a local twist on crème brûlée (entrées, $13–$38).
