We notice that Porto has a rich cuisine based on its history, one of these cases are the Porto Style Tripe, a dish widely appreciated by the people of northern Portugal and that makes the delights all over the world.
Here the tradition already celebrates 600 years of history, which makes it older than most of the world countries. Its tradition dates back from the time of discoveries, when the Infantry Soldier D. Henrique from Porto needed to feed the people of his vessels for taking Ceuta and the population ended up with the remains of animals and they "made to do with what they had".
Like all meats that the city possessed were used to supply all vessels, the population was sacrificed, leaving only the offal for preparing their daily diet (including tripes). It was with the tripes that the people from Porto had to reinvent some food alternatives, arising this way the "Porto Style Tripe” typical dish which would eventually be perpetuated until today and become, itself, in one of the gastronomic more characteristic elements of the city.
