Where to find Portuguese food and drinks in Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland
There are over seventy million Portuguese people all over the world. Considering that our country is home to just about ten million, you can imagine coming across a Portuguese citizen or person of Portuguese descent in different corners of the world is not that hard.
Central Europe is one of the regions where, historically, the Portuguese have traveled to in search of a better life. If France has always been a popular destination for Portuguese immigrants, so have been the neighboring regions of Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland.
Belgium is a country where people from many nationalities have established their home, and where the Portuguese are one of the biggest European immigrant groups, accounting for more than 50,000 residents. In Luxembourg, on the other hand, Portuguese folks make up more than 16% of the population and are known as Portuguese Luxembourgers or, in Portuguese language, as Lusoburguêses. But it is in Switzerland that the Portuguese immigration definitely stands out. With almost a quarter of a million Portuguese people living in the Swiss territory, you bet our culture, traditions and food are well represented around here!
If you live or are traveling in Belgium, Luxembourg or Switzerland, you can still taste authentic Portuguese food and wines. These are the best places to do so:
