All you need is some good bread, some mustard and of course some authentic Portuguese sausage. My favorite is linguica. It is pronounced li gwisa. It is a pork sausage that is smoke-cured, and seasoned with garlic and paprika. All you need to do is grill it and split it and put it in between bread with a little mustard. It truly is a heavenly bite.
In the capital city of Sao Tome on the island of the same name, you will find a massive market. This is where on the island you will find this and many other versions of a sausage sandwich.
Enjoy this Sao Tome sausage sandwich with a good Portuguese beer like we did. One of my favorites Portuguese beer is called Super Bock. Trust me you will love this quick and easy Sao Tome Sausage Sandwich.
