Ironbound Newark...

Any suggestions on good Portugese/Spanish Restaurants in the Ironbound Section of Newark, NJ other than the usual places (Don Pepes, Iberia, Fornos)? We're looking at having Dinner on a Saturday night? Thanks in advance.

  1. Our favorite place closed on Ferry Street and it took several months to find an acceptable replacement. I suggest you try "Tony Da Caneca" at 72 Elm Road (small free parking lot accross the street) . Excellent Suckling Pig, Grilled Prawns in Garlic Sauce, Broiled Lobster, Steaks, etc. We've been back six-seven times and always have a great meal. You will need a reservation.

    1. We just had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Seabra's Marisqueira and as usual it was tasty , well prepared, and an excellent value. The huge Mozambique prawn were excellent, simply grilled with just olive oil ,salt and butter. Grilled beef short ribs,grilled Bacalau and pork with clams were very good also.

      1. It's been a long time since I've been, but i always liked Casa Vasca

        1. Mompou is romantic and great food, tapas and dinner size. outdoor garden seating in rear. inside can get noisy on weekends. try the tortilla which is like a lasagna with blue cheese, and the octopus -- yum

          1. You will find plenty of discussion in this thread:
