Fantastic display of the Portugeuse Culture

The architecture and cuisine of this section of the state, not to mention the bakeries. Is some of the best experiences of Newark.

Strong Portuguese and Brazilian influence. Many Brazilian barbecue places. In Ferry Street you can find many Brazilian restaurants that serve "caipirinha (brazilian lemon drink), churrasco (meat skewer), and many other delicious foods. Brazilia is a great restaurant to start off! Streets are busy and parking is a little difficult unless you park in the restaurants' parking lots. Casa Nova is... More

The neighborhood was interesting. Portugese very commonly spoken. The easiest way to get there was by taxi, but it was about half price to use train and it did not take muck longer. Take the train to New Jersey Penn station and walk up the road! Managed to find a T-mobile store here for prepaid Internet, which had been impossible... More

There is an abundance of great Portuguese restaurants in the Ironbound section of Newark. You can find parking at one of the local restaurants or with a minimal search on the street. Just avoid trying to park on Ferry and instead ride down the side streets off of Ferry. Plenty of parking in a strip mall area on Ferry and... More

If you like Portuguese cuisine and influence this is a good spot. There are many good places to eat that are Portuguese food. Just keep your eyes open and take a chance and you will probably be happy.
