When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Portuguese and American fare at Portuguese Fisherman in New London.
Located steps from the state pier, Portuguese Fisherman has been reeling in noshers with the scents of Portuguese and American breakfast and lunch specials for more than a decade. The portuguese sweet-bread french toast starter is baked to perfection ($6.55), and the linguica, egg, and cheese sandwich ($5.45) distracts mouths from shouting epithets at passing squirrels. Overworked palates can sleep late and munch on midday entrees such as the kielbasa roll served with french fries ($7.65). American favorites include the tuna melt ($7.65) and chicken-salad sandwich ($7.10), as well as the Gobbler sandwich, which pays homage to competitive-eating pilgrims by uniting Thanksgiving fixings such as fresh turkey, gravy, cranberry sauce, and stuffing into one sandwich ($10.18).
