Feast on Flavorful Entrees
This is the main event - the large plates that will fill you up and possibly make you say, “I shouldn’t have eaten that last bite.” Head to Ironbound in the Marriott and enjoy the Passaic Tacos stuffed with creamy avocado, spicy pico de gallo, and cotija cheese. Don Felix on Elizabeth Avenue serves a flavorful picana asada or spicy bitoque in an updated setting. Here you can enjoy watching the big game on high-definition televisions while sipping on a tasty margarita or pina colada! If your appetite is massive, you’ll need to visit Taberna Del Rei for their large portions of chicken and orange rice. if their grilled swordfish is on special, don’t hesitate to order it - you won’t be disappointed.
Clearly, Portuguese food doesn’t stop at incredible seafood - Brazilian churrascaria is another regional favorite. Grilled meats marinated in wonderful sauces and absorbing flavors from the smoke are all part of the cuisine. Costeleta de vaca grelhada, the grilled beef short ribs at Valença Restaurant are a specialty and can stand all by themselves. But don’t miss out on the visually appealing rabos de lagosta na pedra - twin lobster tails cooked on a hot stone! Or go all out at Minhoto’s Restaurant with the Brazilian-style barbecue meat combination - you’ll be swimming in the savory tastes and smells of chicken, pork, and beef grilled to perfection.
