In Oporto city there are plenty of good restaurants serving Tripas a Moda do Porto, the city’s iconic dish prepared with with several meats, tripe, sausages and white navy beans.

Restaurants serving Tripas a Moda do Porto are an ex-libris of the Oporto city.

The name may be translated as Tripe in the style of Porto. This recipe is a symbol of the Oporto people’s generosity.
According to the legend it all happened when Henry the Navigator was preparing his ships to conquer Ceuta in 1415. Henry asked the people of Oporto to donate supplies to stock the ships. And they did! In such an extent, that all that was left were the tripe.
And with the tripe they created this amazing recipe, proving once more that necessity is the mother of invention. This granted Oporto inhabitants the nickname of “tripeiros” or “tripe eaters”.

Tripas a Moda do Porto is a regional stew prepared with several meats, tripe, sausages and white navy beans.
