ok, indulge me a little here. my parents are going to prtugal this weekend til christmas and im missing it so much, i want to go with them. to cheer myself up to day i went to nandos (a portuguese chain restaurant here in the UK) but it is no comparison to the chicken place, its a town in portugal that is famous for it peri-peri chicken. the best place to get it looks like a wharehouse from the outside, inside is just rows and rows of tables. everyone sits down and you get a huge bowl of potatoes, a huge bowl of chicken, a salad and a pitcher of beer. there is no menu and everyone eats together and chats to complete strangers. i love it if anyone ever goes to portugal you have to check it out.
