A 1927 rail cable car with Portuguese food? Guy says The Grubstake Diner is a one-of-kind San Francisco find. Today the menu pays homage to owner Fernando Santos' Portuguese heritage. Guy loved the spicy pork chops and raved about the "green soup" made with kale and topped with plenty of linguica.
At Blount Market, the top-selling kale soup is available fresh or frozen, and uses local chorizo from Amaral’s, a bit of paprika, and kidney beans “to make it more of an all-round hearty soup,” says chef Jeff Wirtz.
Ted Allen knows for a tongue-tingling bite of Portugal, Churrascaria Novo Mundo has the "holy grail" of spicy, crispy barbecued chicken. On The Best Thing I Ever Ate, Ted praises the chicken, roasted over open flames and later slathered in an irresistible blend of hot sauce and spices.
