Portuguese Food in Chicago?

Anybody know of any Portuguese places to eat in Chicago?
Bakeries? Grocery stores? Restaurants?
I moved from Montreal a year and a half ago ..and miss the Portuguese places I loved over there.
Particularly the Chicken and the Nattas.

any ideas?

  1. The Portuguese seem to have disappeared in Chicago since the 1980's, when there were at least two restaurants: Lisboa Antica, located on Wells, on the block north of North Avenue, near Second City; and a little storefront place, whose name I've forgotten, in Albany Park, on Kedzie near Leland. Don't know of any open these days.
