The oldest Portuguese restaurant in Boston, Casa Portugal remains a simple rustic gem that serves incredible Iberian food. With its native artwork and painted wall murals, this intimate eatery feels like a traditional Portuguese home. Bread and delicious olives start the meal off right. The appetizers sparkle, including Mexilao a Estoril, an aromatic steaming bowl of mussels in fish oil and wine; and chourico assado, spicy Portuguese sausage served on a small flaming grill. For main courses, try the wonderful caldeirada a Portuguesa, a large metal bowl of clams, squid, mussels and fish in a parsley wine sauce. While many of Inman Square?s Portuguese restaurants focus on seafood, Casa Portugal also specializes in meat dishes. Great choices include a grilled scalloped pork in garlic sauce; and the Bife a Portugusa, a juicy steak with egg on top. All entrees come with soup, rice and their irresistible Portuguese fried potatoes. Finish the meal off with their terrific desserts like arroz dolce; and natas de ceu, a creamy pudding topped with cookie crumbs. If you want to experience the place that started Cambridge?s rich tradition of outstanding Portuguese restaurants, stop by Casa Portugal.
