Job Description

TUGA is a project of passion. It all started in Taipei, when a dream of proudly bringing the best from Portugal was made true. TUGA is a celebration of Portugal – through its food, wine, music and art. It’s a journey of discovery: when someone walks into TUGA, they embark on a full immersion of Portugal.

TUGA is an engaging space where guests can fall in love with Portugal and a place where they can come back to immerse themselves into Portuguese culture even if they don’t travel to Portugal.

The word “TUGA” is deeply related to the Portuguese soul. It’s actually an affable colloquialism meaning a Portuguese person who is so proud to be Portuguese.
