The restaurant spin-off of Shop Luso, a local importer of Portuguese products, La Portugalia is a fuss-free eatery that’s partitioned into a Portuguese product showroom and a dining area. Expect nothing fancy—La Portugalia is patterned after eateries that line the streets of Lisbon that, though unassuming, serve some of the most delicious homemade fare in the southern European country. To start, pair the caldo verde, a rich veggie-based soup, with a couple of rissóis (Portuguese croquettes with shrimp, pork or chicken filling). Also worth a try are the mildly spiced piri piri chicken and bitoque steak (which uses Thai beef). Don’t forget to make room for dessert—the restaurant claims that it makes the most authentic pastel de nata (Portuguese egg tart) in town.
