Casa de Pasto das Carvalheiras | Braga

In Portuguese the word “pasto” is commonly used to refer to feed for cattlegrazing to be more specific – its comes from the Latin word, “pastus”, which meant any kind of food, even food for thought. Until the end of the 19th century – casa de pasto was the designation for a place where you could have a meal. It was the combination of  both a delicacy restaurant and a tavern. They served meals and light snacks throughout the day.  The French influence brought the word “restaurante” for such places and the word “pasto” became an archaism. Even so – some places like Casa de Pasto das Carvalheiras – kept that name respecting the tradition of serving traditionally flavoured delicacies.
