10 thoughts on “California

  1. Is there any Portuguese Restaurants in Southern California? Los Angeles area?? I moved to California from Rhode Island and there is NONE!! Im dying for some home food. Please help this Portuguese man out.
    Dave Gois


  3. Anyone know of any Portuguese restaurants in San Diego area?? I know the Brazilian place in downtown but I’m looking for real Portuguese food. Not meat on a stick.

  4. When I was living in the high desert California (originally from Fall River, MA), there wasn’t much Portuguese culture around for many miles. I had a chance to spend several days in San Diego, and whenever I was outside the desert, I always made sure to look for Portuguese culture. My wife and kids and I were watching the fishermen haul in their catch, including huge tunas, onto the shore, when I heard some people talking behind me. I noticed right away they weren’t speaking English, and I registered that it wasn’t Spanish either, but I realized that I understood what they were saying – it was Portuguese! I turned and looked to see two or three old men talking to each other in Portuguese. I approached them and struck up a conversation in Portuguese with them – was there anywhere in San Diego where one could buy traditional Portuguese food, spices, etc.? They said there wasn’t any that they knew of, but some time before there was a man who had a truck that sold such things on the street. I was disappointed, but I enjoyed speaking to the old men very much.

  5. Are there any Portuguese restaurants or bakeries in the Sacramento area? I don’t mean foo foo restaurants or restaurants that have one item with linguiça in it but real restaurants that make you feel like you are eating in your grandmother’s kitchen.

  6. Both the Elegant Bull and the Wool Growers are great restaurants. They are about an 180 degrees apart when it comes to the style of the restaurants, but the food is beyond divine. The Elegant Bull has the best “Fish Stew” I have ever tasted, with the exception of Mom’s.
    All of their other meals are fantastic, and the prices are good, considering they are like a Steak House. The Wool Growers, is just down home cooking. You sit at benches and meet people from all over. You are served family style and a lot of food, a lot of variety and delicious doesn’t cover it. I don’t live in Los Banos, so a trip over there is always worked around their hours. If you get a change to eat at either of these restaurants, jump at it.
