Portugalia is our little hidden gem in the Newark, NJ area and we frequent it almost weekly. If you're looking for fine dining look elsewhere. This is your casual authentic Portuguese go-to restaurant.
Be careful on weekends especially Sunday's during soccer season as both the restaurant and bar gets filled with local Portuguese people who live in the area.
Their BBQ chicken is by far the best BBQ chicken you'll have. It's not the typical chicken and rather a smaller chicken where the meat just falls off the bone. It's full of flavor and no dry white meat. Their Sangria (especially by Rafael or Pedro) is top notch and some of the best in the area.
