At $20, the paella at this casual restaurant just off the Boulevard is priced for one but sized for two. The small pot in which it’s served is crammed with saffron-infused rice, lobster, shrimp, clams, scallops, squid, chicken and pork cubes, and Portuguese chorizo, a mild paprika-scented sausage.
My husband and I were invited to a birthday dinner at Taste of Portugal last evening. What looked to be just a plain bar/restaurant among strip stores on Adams Avenue turned out to be a big surprise! The food served (family style) was absolutely delicious and there was plenty to go around. From the appetizers (our favorites were the sauteed shrimp with garlic sauce and the stuffed mushrooms) to the main entrees (the salmon was about the best that we have had), we couldn't stop raving about the food! The waiters were pleasant and very accommodating throughout our time there. The entrance to the restaurant is disappointing, but the room on the lower level is pleasant and cheery. As a final note, try their sangria - the absolute BEST!! Posted by Carol: Jun. June 21st, 2009 at 2:00 AM
