Portugal, officially the Portuguese Republic is located in the west and southwest parts of the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, and is the western most country in continental Europe.

Portuguese cuisine is characterised by rich, filling and full-flavored dishes and is closely related to Mediterranean cuisine. Wide variety of spices are used in portuguese cuisine coz of the influence of their colonial possessions, many spices like black pepper, cinnamon, vanilla,saffron are carried by the portuguese from many parts of the world, olive oil is on the basic ingredient in Portuguese cusine and garlic is widely used and also herbs like coriander and parsley..Portuguese influences can be tasted in the Indian province of Goa, where Goan cuisine dishes such as vindaloo show the pairing of vinegar and garlic..So try out any vegatarian portuguese dish and send them to me immediately...
