Ma Poule Mouillée (Portuguese chicken grill)
They deserve their own thread because ma first visit was perfect.
I had chicken a the new spot called ma poule mouillée
accross the steet from la banquise.
Verdict. A great juicy chicken leg with tasty fries and a mini custard tart http://tinyurl.com/mgjyehf (what the official portgese name again?).
Nothing like freshly cooked. Even the tart was so flaky and tasty.
My new favorite place!

That is why I put "chicken" between scare quotes, as it is used in the same way in English. As for the literal English "wet hen", while "mad as a wet hen" may be more common, it has other meanings, though more a "wet blanket" or sad old thing than a "chicken".

The blogpost indicates that the official opening will the September 10th, and Tony Alves will be selling grillades outdoors, to the sound of Portuguese music.
