In Porto we call “Prego” (a Nail in English) a grilled steak with french fries. Mostly because in the old days, the meat was literally "hammered” in order to make it more tender .In Santiago Café, we serve the typical Porto ‘nails’. Served in a dish or in a single bread, our ‘nails’ are made with the best bull meat we receive daily, in which we put aside the fat and soften the meat, without the hammer.
The Santiago’s Hotdog is also one of our most popular references. When it’s served with sauce, some call it the Francesinha in a longer shape. With crunchy dog bread, fresh sausage, "linguiça", ham and cheese, Santiago’s Hotdog is assumed as an unique snack , or as a delicious appetizer, or even a good old simple snack.
