Portugese food or Sangria in San Diego?

oldbaydave Feb 13, 2002 03:59 AM

I've really enjoyed reaping the rewards of Chowhound messages. Thanks to the Chowhound who reminded me about the Fishery (the Blue Point Oysters were delicious).

I'm trying to find a Portugese Restaurant in San Diego. You'd think there might be something out near Point Loma. Suggestions?

Also, with the warm weather we're having, my wife and I have the itch to sit outside and drink good Sangria.

    Too bad this answer is five years too late, but the definitive Portuguese place in San Diego is PORTUGALIA in Ocean Beach. There is a Portuguese market on the first floor and the restaurant upstairs. It is MAGNIFICENT Service is personal- the chef /owner counseled us on our choices, and there is live music of all kinds on various days of the week. Look it up in the phone book. I cant remember the address, but they do have a web site you can google.

        Hey Alice - I've been to Portugalia a few times, and I've found Dining Diva's assessment to be pretty much on the spot, even though it's from back in 2004:


        There was an interesting comment in the "Worst meal of 2006" thread as well.

          Thanks for the heads up Kirk. I thought (and was sort of hoping) that this was someplace new I hadn't heard about yet. I will check that info out.

          As far as sitting outside and drinking Sangria - the Prado actually makes a pretty good pitcher - I think it's $15.00 and very generous - about six glasses.

      Ole Madrid in the Gaslamp District had good sangria, but I ate there about the same time you posted on Chowhound, so who knows what's happened there in the past five years.

        Alexander's in North Park has a great sangria
