Lari Robling has a better Northern Liberties experience than Craig LaBan did at Kong when she visits Koo Zee Doo, a Portuguese BYOB.
With its emphasis on sausage and seafood, Portuguese cuisine isn’t known for being vegetarian-friendly, but Gilberg does manage to make this soup vegetarian as well as offer a fried corn porridge with fennel, fava and green beans that is vegan.
Me, I’m going for as much of the chorizo sausages that Gilberg can get from his source in Newark, N.J. He gets many products from Portugal – such as the olive oil and sea salt – but the meats are as authentic, fresh and sustainable as he can get.
