Sample the flavors of Portuguese cuisine at O'Porto in Hartford. This popular restaurant serves a full menu of authentic items.
Start off with the smoked chourico, a variant of Spanish chorizo sausage that is roasted over an open fire and splashed with Aguadente (a potent Portugese liquor) before being brought to the table. It’s incredibly flavorful, with the tang of the alcohol melding with the fatty, savory meat. Also exceptional is O’Porto’s paella, saffron rice dishes made with perfectly-cooked seafood, chicken, and pork. They’re filling enough that you can split an order with a dining partner and still come away stuffed. O’Porto’s house-made sangria is a delicious complement to whatever you end up ordering.
