Why SouthCoast Restaurants Need These Heavenly Portuguese Sandwich Sliders
I don't always have the best ideas in the world, but now and then I'll strike gold.
As an avid foodie and lover of Portuguese food, I might have come up with the most enticing menu item that could very well be incorporated into every Portuguese-style restaurant across the SouthCoast.
I call it the Portuguese Party Platter and it's the perfect way to savor a smorgasbord of different staple sandwiches from Portugal and the Azores. I'm telling you, this is nothing yet, but it could be a hit.
Suppose you've ever been to Olive Garden. In that case, you already know about the Tour of Italy, a popular menu item that consists of chicken parmigiana, lasagna classico, and the signature fettuccine alfredo.
My idea would be similar, but with a Portuguese flair, and I'm drooling just thinking about it.
The Portuguese Party Platter would be a combination of sandwich sliders on one of those fancy flight boards. Since food and drink flights are hot commodities at restaurants and bars, the appeal is self-evident. From left to right:
- Chourico sandwich (sliced links or ground chourico)
- Cacoila sandwich (shredded or chunks)
- Bifana sandwich
- Portuguese steak sandwich (with egg and hot peppers)
Again, this is not a real thing, but if it were, I wouldn't be mad about a little credit to whichever restaurant picks up my idea. Oh, and call me when it hits the specials menu.
