Portuguese restaurants in Mineola, NY

I hear there are some portuguese restaurants in Mineola. Where are they and does anyone have any recommendations.
I'm going to mess up this name, but Churrasqueria Barraida on Jericho (north side, diagonally across from Chuckles comedy club) was good when I went there a few years back - they do that all you can eat grill thing.
I have friends who love Little Portugal on Mineola Blvd, a few blocks south of Jericho. My friends are from PR and swoon over the rice and beans there!
While you are in the neighborhood, there is a restaurant about a block north of Little Port. which is called Rudy's Central American and Italian cuisine. I've been curious, just haven't had a chance to get there.

Try Lareira on Jericho Turnpike in Mineola. Their specialty is a grilled shrimp dish that sounds plain but is oh so flavorful.
BTW, the Rudy's mentioned in the prior post is owned, I believe, by the same owners as the Dimaggio chain of Italian restaurants (Port Washington, Little Neck, etc.). I had the papusas there and they were excellent. However, nothing else seemed particularly interesting on the menu.
