Cozido à Portuguesa

Cozido à portuguesa, a meat stew, is probably the most famous traditional Portuguese dish, which is why it impossible to speak of our cuisine without mentioning this delicacy, which evokes family flavours and traditions. 

“No one makes a cozido as well as my mother” or “there is no cozido like my grandmother’s” are recurring phrases when talking about one of the country’s seven culinary wonders, but there are restaurants in Mafra Municipality that seek to upend this hierarchy of opinions regarding the best cozido à portuguesa. 

Particularly on Thursdays, it has remained one of the most consumed dishes in the small restaurants and taverns in Vila da Malveira, on the days of the famous cattle market.
