A rather unexpected dish in the menu of Terceira restaurants is a rump, which is seasoned with spices and stewed according to the traditional recipe. This part of the chicken, usually almost not used in cooking, is a real delicacy here. Some of the quite traditional dishes are made of yams - sweet potatoes, which are prepared in several different ways and served together with very thin pork sausages called linguiça. Local sweet potatoes with pork sausage and a variety of options for stewed pork are also delicious.
Bolo levedo is often eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Locals eat it instead of bread with the main dish. But you can also eat bolo levedo separately, smeared with honey, butter or jam. Honey on the island is distinguished by its unique taste due to the presence of endemic plants. Alcatra is a separate item in the menu of any restaurant. This dish does not have a canonical recipe for cooking, but always represents several types of meat that are baked in a specially designed clay pot. Despite the abundance of fish dishes, steaks in local restaurants are incredibly delicious. However, this is not surprising, because locals have always paid much attention to meat dishes. Copyright
