Francesinhas in Newark? ( Portuguese sandwich )

  • l

I just spent a lovely 10 days in the Oporto area of Portugal and fell in love with the local sammich - the Francesinha. It's the only thing I can imagine that is worse for you than Quebecois poutine.

In case you were wondering, the Francesinha is a sandwich filled with steak, ham, chorizo, and sausage, covered in sliced cheese, and then smothered in a beer- and tomato-based gravy.

Anyways, I was wondering if any of the POrtuguese restaurants in Newark were brave enough to serve this wonderful artery-clogger...

      Tell us the address and we'll be right over!!

    2. I just recently had one of these at Tintol on 46th Street in Manhattan. It was good, but not great - any new news on whether this sandwich can be had in Newark at a non-private club? (I was never able to find the FC Porto Club in Newark, anyways.)
