Portugese Chicken Restaurants

Can anyone suggest a good place for quality grilled Portugese chicken? Has anyone tried the new place on Westminister Ave in Montreal West?

        1. Hello????? What new play in Mtl. West??? Is that what opened next door to the bistro or tavern or whatever it's called? Diagonally across from the Patisserie de la Gare???

          1. There's a little Portugese chicken place on Gatineau, near the corner of Swail (one block away from the corner of Queen Mary and Côte-des-Neiges). I haven't tried it myself, but I've heard good things about it.

              That's Mavi (5192 Gatineau, 514 340-9664). Turns out seriously good chicken that I'd rank alongside but not above Portugalia's or Romados's. OTOH, unlike Portugalia, they make very good fries and, unlike Romados, they have a real dining area (albeit one that could use some sprucing up).

                I've always thought Romados has great fries, too. Some of the best in the city. I'd even go so far as to say they could teach most fries & poutine places a thing or two.

                I went last year and was not impressed. The portion was small and kind of dry. I prefer Portugalia or Jano's.
