On the outskirts of Queens in Bellerose, you’ll find Chicky’s, a South African-Portuguese restaurant that makes great Peri-Peri chicken. Depending on your heat tolerance, you can choose from different flavored sauces like lemon and garlic herb, or go for one of the different levels of spice ranging from medium to Chicky’s hot. We specifically love the “Chicky’s N Chips” that comes with cut-up fried chicken and a plethora of their sauces drizzled on the top, all placed on a bed of crispy fries.

Frangos Peri Peri
Frangos is a Portuguese counter-service spot in the East Village that’s all about peri peri sauce.
The menu at Broa changes often, but we’ve never had a bad dish at this Portuguese BYO spot in Jersey City.
Despite the wait times, we wholeheartedly recommend having a fun, seafood-dominated meal at Cervo’s on the Lower East Side.
Macao Trading Co.
"Look for the red lantern," instructs the Macao Trading Co. website. This is how you will know you have reached your destination - the Portuguese colony of Macao circa 1952, "a fugitive's heaven from which there is no turning back." Awesome. We're apparently having dinner at Universal Studios tonight.
