The pork loin -vinegar- was very tough, though thin.

Music was fun and food was great. We got good recommendations for the food by the singer. It was fun watching some of the customers dancing in the aisle and even better when the singer came down to dance too.

All 5 of us loved our dishes. A small, friendly place. I hope they stay around.

Unfortunately, one of my guests never got his dinner; and if he hadn't flagged the waiter, who knows when he would have found out that he wasn't getting it? He was told that it would be boxed and he could take it home with him for no charge. But, later, when the waiter came back, he said he did not want to approach the chef, but he did not offer to box up any other selection from the menu for my guest. I thought that it was really rather rude that the waiter would put his feelings ahead of a guest. (Certainly NO aloha there!) Maybe that's why they are closing?

From Our Editors

When Antonio “Trigo” Da Silva moved to Hawaii in 2007, he found a community of people who wanted to learn more about their own Portuguese heritage. That’s why he opened Adega Portuguesa Restaurant in Chinatown. There, visitors can sample traditional dishes such as Portuguese-style bean soup, Northern Portuguese–style codfish, or bitoque—a dish made by crowning a new york strip steak with brown gravy and a fried egg.

On Fridays and Saturdays, the eatery’s cooks also prepare Brazilian dishes such as feijoada, a medley of black beans, beef, pork, sausage, and bacon stewed with farofa and sliced orange. Beer, cocktails, and imported wines wash back each bite. In addition to tasting traditional foods, guests can dance to live Portuguese music or learn the native tongue in Portuguese language classes.
