I can’t even begin to tell you how good these char-grilled oysters were. Where do I start!?

First let’s go with the smell. As soon as the waiter came around, all you smell is the cheese goodness- of the parmesan cheese that is sprinkled on top. The shells are wicked hot to the touch, so careful! I know your mouth is watering, but have a little self control. It’s hard. They smell so good.

Well once it has cooled down enough that you can manage to grab an oyster and scoop one out, GO! GO GO GO! The result is a perfectly cooked oyster in your mouth that is covered in cheese and oil. OMG. I don’t know what else they sprinkle on these. Maybe some garlic? Olive oil? Whatever it is, it is amazing. You definitely want to take advantage of the bread and dip it in all that oil. YUM.

The raw oysters were also real good. Some of the best raw oysters I’ve ever had in my life.

Yes, I went all out. For my entrée, I ordered the soft shell crab. This thing was pretty big…and scary. I know what crabs look like, but having it just chilling right in front of you looking like a huge spider was starting to freak me out. I overcame my fear and just went for it. The crab was pretty tasty, but I prefer it tempura style. After a while the fried stuff gets to you.

This was by far my favorite food during my Mardi Gras trip to New Orleans, LA. Char-grilled oysters are a MUST HAVE. There is almost always a long line outside of this place, but it moves surprisingly quickly- within 15 minutes we were seated and the wait is SO worth it!

Estoril Restaurant

Before attending the International Portuguese Music Awards in New Bedford, MA, we only thought it was right to have dinner at a Portuguese restaurant before hand. Fall River, MA is full of them as well as market places and the food is SO good and fresh! So we paid a visit to Estoril Restaurant

Pictured above is what the entire table ordered and probably the most popular plate to order at any Portuguese restaurant- Bifé A Casa or Bifé A Portuguesa. It’s a deliciously huge tender sirloin steak, probably something like 12-16oz, with a fried egg, gravy on top, and fries & rice on the side (here it’s garnished with a slice of hot red pepper). All of it for only $16..not bad!

The food was so damn good that each and every one of us ate until our plates were clean. Even soaking up the gravy with their fresh Portuguese rolls…SO GOOD.

mousseOf course afterwards we HAD to get dessert. You can’t be at a Portuguese restaurant and not get dessert. My favorite, but simple dessert is the Chocolate Mousse. OMG it gets me every time. Love it. Love it even more with some fresh fruit on the side and whip cream. And following dessert you need to have coffee, you know, because after all that YOU WILL GET THE ITIS. So we each ordered a Galão- basically a Portuguese latte with sprinkled cinnamon on top…delectable!

All I can say is, when will we be visiting Fall River again!?

THE SOPPRESSATA

Sounds fancy right!? WELL IT IS. Fancy pizza.

I was SO excited when I found out a new spring/summer food truck schedule was coming out. For the longest time, this shitty asian food truck called “Savory Food Truck” came 3x a week. Now, Savory is GONE and this new schedule is so bomb. Hello to Summer of 2015, the summer of being broke and fat.

So after jumping for joy, I ventured outside to the truck. No line. YES. Wood fired oven- CHECK.

The menu is mostly pizza and they all sound delicioso. I ordered the Soppressata- spicy salami, mozzarella cheese, tuscan pepper, oregano, arugula, and parmesan. It was delicious as expected. And as a no-crust-pizza-eater…I ate the crust. It was perfectly cooked, yummy, warm, and soft with just the right amount of dough.

For dessert, I had a cannoli. A cannoli is a cannoli. It’s yummy and I immediately got the itis after eating it.

Next week I think I’ll order the Mushroom.
