While I was in Porto, Portugal, my husband and I found this amazing, charming little restaurant called Goela.

Let's just put it this way, we ate there 3 days in a row while we were attending a developer conference. The slogan for Goela is "Random Comfort Food". And let me tell you, it lives up to its name in the best of ways. The recipes are so creative and diverse. Every single "random" ingredient intertwines together in the perfect melody of flavors.

And not only that, but everyone who works there is friendly, kind and joyful. Every single waitress and waiter that served customers at their tables treated them like they were the most important people on earth.

When I visit an establishment like this, there's something I can immediately detect: good management.

I had to talk to the owner. Clearly, he or she had mastered the art of not only impeccable culinary skills, but also people skills. To every business owner out there, watch this and take notes.

Included in this article is the full interview with João Ribeiro, chef and owner, along with pictures and other videos of this amazing place. If you visit Porto, be sure to come to Goela, the best restaurant in Porto.
