Overview
Azorean cuisine has a flavor all its own, so sample the best of São Miguel on a Ponta Delgada food tour that showcases the island’s farm-fresh produce and specialty snacks. See where locals shop at the Mercado de Graca, and stop at a variety of hand-selected eateries to sample authentic Azorean dishes. There are enough tastings to make a satisfying meal, and you’ll get tips on where to eat during your entire time in the Azorean capital.
