About the {{offerTypeLabel(offer)}}

This {{offerTypeLabel(offer)}} is on {{getFormattedDate(event.getClaimStart(), event.getClaimEnd())}}
Don't be taken in by its cutesie name or gallic gastronomic origins: this "Little Frenchie" is a culinary tower-of-power and more than deserving of its legendary status in Portuguese dining culture.

A far-cry from the dainty Croque Madame, the Francesinha is a meat-filled lunch monster from the diaspora. Layers of pork, smoked sausage, bacon and medium-rare slices of beefsteak are encased in doorstep bread, topped with an egg and laced with a rich, cheesey sauce. Heated through to maximise the melt-factor, it's then smothered with a delectably rich and tangy sauce (word has it that it's infused with alcohol and a touch of chilli) and served with a bountiful side of Fries.

Healthy eating, this is not. Nor is it particularly refined. But neither really matter, if we're honest. The Francesnha + Fries combo is unique ("big-eating" with a strong wink to proper Portuguese tradition) and its a dream dish for hungry meat-eaters. For that, it's more than deserving of a feature on Wriggle - and of a place on your Cardiff foodie bucket-list.

About Nata & Co (Bute St, Cardiff Bay)

Nata & Co bring the Portuguese spirit to Cardiff with their trio of café-bakeries across Cardiff. Portuguese baking is famous for the "pastel de nata" and, unsurprisingly, Nata & Co’s is an absolute bobby dazzler (think crisp layers of golden pastry containing a wobbly sweet custard filling with a lightly charred top). But, there’s more to Nata than this. You'll return again and again for Salt cod fritters, custard donuts, chorizo-flecked bread and fully-laden tostas, and the smiles and bubbly conversation from Nata's baristas and bakers will have you nattering to your friends about it. The perfect choice for an informal breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack or a post-afternoon-snack snack (Team Wriggle's meal of choice).
