        oh yeah, spanish. Solar Del Minho in Bellevill for awesome Portuguese food. I usually go there about 2 times per month. Steak on a tile, best octopus i ever had too. Very consistent.

            I third Casa Vasca. I've had more excellent meals than I can remember (though a good friend I sent there once got a bad meal)

                I've read good things about Brasilia. Though I prefer Casa Vasca, Iberia was my first introduction to Ironbound. If it hadn't been so good, I wouldn't have come back to the neighborhood.
