Andorinha - The black swallows at Boca
One of Portugal's national icons. You will find hundreds of beautiful birds in Boca, these birds are known locally as andorinha and are famous for their migratory journey to Portugal every spring where they make their nests with their life-long companions. They are synonymous with family, loyalty and love and echo the Portuguese soul that is omnipresent at the restaurant.
Geographically situated on the South-western end of the European continent, bordering the Atlantic Ocean, this seafaring nation naturally has a seafood-centric diet.
As a former colonial power, Portugal's empire reached far and wide from Brazil in the West, Angola in the South, to Macau in the East. The unique flavours of Portuguese cuisine is thus greatly influenced through spices, sugar, and coffee acquired from its vast colonies.
