On the opposite side of Newark’s Ironbound, away from hectic Ferry Street, Taste of Portugal serves up very strong Portuguese classics: Shrimp in Garlic, grilled Portuguese sausage (chourico) (served sliced, not flaming, unfortunately), Mariscada (seafood stew), Broiled Codfish, and Pork and Clams.

Filet Mignon on a Stone

Also on the menu are Spanish dishes like Paella (Valenciana and Marinera), and steaks, including Filet Mignon on a Stone to cook at your table, drenched with garlic butter.

There’s a lively bar to the right of the entrance; to the left is the roomy, comfortable dining room. Service is friendly and not too stuffy.
