Hi there fellow Melbournites

A new restaurant opened in Bay street, Brighton owned by newly arrived Portugese South Africans. The menu looks fabulous with items like espetadas, chicken livers peri peri, sticky date pud, don pedro kahlua, steak, kangaroo, risotto's and salads.

The restaurant is close to the station and easy to find. Lunch between 12:00 - 15:00 :blush:

Cheers

This is a joke... (so I hope you take in that light)

Old South African saying...

When the Jews leave a country; it is time to leave...

When the Portuguese start leaving; it is too late...

Will definitely come and try in April 09...

I wish I knew how to make the secret trinchado sauce of the Diaz Tavern in Cape Town. Tried soooo many times to bribe a waiter into telling me, but nothing came of it. No other Portuguese restaurant in SA matched them.

Please ask the owner if he has an uncle/brother/cousin -whatever- who can come and open up a portuguese restaurant on the Gold Coast. We have Nando's. Thats it.

The closest Portuguese Restaurant is in Brisbane somewhere.

I used to go to Lisbon once per year on business trips and was terribly disappointed by the food there (mostly fish, no chilies, chicken definitely not spicy). When talking to the locals about my "South African Portuguese" culinary experiences most said that what I appear to be describing is Madeiran, or possibly a fusion of Mozambican and Madeiran cousine. Madeira is an island off the coast of Portugal, which for some reason has contributed highly to the Portuguese expatriate population.

Anyway, I can highly recommend Michelle Therese's recipe! Here is the mise en place: http://picasaweb.google.com.au/lh/photo/eT...feat=directlink
