So Portuguese food is like spicier European food, or Caribbean food. For lunch we had oxtail, chicken, shrimp, codfish fritters (Bacalhua is one of their main ingredients - it makes pretty yummy salty fried rice!) and chorizo (can't remember the Portuguese spelling). They also make a paella-like dish that seemed popular in the restaurant we went to - A Lorcha, which was very delicious with good service, even for our group of 8.
They also make roasted beef jerky in sheets in many flavors, but there is a stand on my corner in HK that sells that so I refrained.
For dessert they have egg custards that are slightly smaller and chewier than my faves in HK (you can tell the difference by looking because the Portuguese ones have browned tops) and these milk custards in bowls. We got the milk custard with egg flavor and red bean on top - I wouldn't say it was the best thing I ever ate.
