Homemade cachupa is always a tasty idea!
The best Cachupa is homemade on a wooden stove by a Cape Verdean family. Cachupa is a fundamental part of Cape Verdean culture and is eaten fried for breakfast with eggs or as a soup for lunch and dinner. The base of the fresh stew has corn, beans, pork meat and other veggies like sweet potato, carrots and kale. A must-try while visiting the islands!
The beginning of the Cachupa journey starts with the ingredients. A great way to learn about the culture and new foods is by visiting the colourful vegetable markets in Mindelo centre. Walk to Otilia's restaurant in the local area Monte Sossego to prepare the ingredients and start cooking. Make another small tour in the Mandinga neighbourhood Ribeira Bote while the cachupa is on the stove. Come back to enjoy a tasty, homemade lunch!
