“um abraço e um queijo da Serra” is used as a saying and reference to a cheese perhaps worth a try when in Portugal?

Hi @kiwijock, I took a punt and put the Portuguese phrase into Google and it led me to the Reddit page.
I’d love to know how that phrase originated!

I know this expression as “um abraço e um queijinho” (a hug and a cheese). This is one variation of it, referring to a specific type of cheese, which is actually pretty good, hah. The expression can be used as a goodbye, but I don’t know what’s the story behind it. Maybe it’s just because “queijo” rhymes with “beijo” (kiss).
