Has anyone been to Bairrada Churrasqueira recently on College or on St. Clair. I've been to the one in Mississauga which I love but its a bit far. Let me know your experiences. We love the seafood platter and it's our wedding anniversary. Any other suggestions?
Actually the last time I went to the Mississauga location it was at night, and the guy behind the counter already put all the chicken into the fridge.. I ordered a half chicken dinner and it came out microwaved and dry as hell
Needless to say I've never returned, if your ever in the Brampton area I encourage you to try Nova Esperanca instead: www.portuguese-chicken.com
Just went for the first time on Friday night (it's at 1000 College, btw). The backyard patio is fantastic. I wasn't overwhelmed by the food (grilled chicken, sorry we all had the same thing so no detail in this report) but it was well-cooked and tasty...the rice below the chicken was sublimely greasy. But basically, it's all about the backyard, sitting at picnic tables in a garden-like setting. Quite unique in Toronto, the closest analogous patio experience for me is probably Allen's on the Danforth, but with the obvious difference of an Irish/NY-styled environment versus a Portuguese one. And the picnic tables!
I doubt I would go to Bairrada if I couldn't sit outside.
