Portuguese/Spanish seafoord Sun, 03/23/08 10:18 PM (permalink)
Today I (finally) made it over to Newark, NJ Ironbound area to try some Portuguese food. I was in the mood for seafood. Last week my dentist recommended Iberia restaurant because he went to dental school nearby.

What a treat!!

There were a lot of seafood dishes, so I asked the waiter for a recommendation. He suggested "Marinara" which was a huge (HUGE) dish of yellow rice with lobster (whole small one), mussles, shrimp (probably 20 or more), clams in shell (maybe 15) and big scallops. It also had pimento, tomato and peas. Actually it was a sort of paella.

My daughter wanted pasta, so I ordered some "with" seafood. I'd say there was 3 x as much seafood as ziti!! Small clams, shrimp, huge scallops (about 20) and about 20 slices of portuguese sausage. With thin garlicky tomato sauce. It was delicious.

We had so much we took home huge "doggy bags", enough for 2 more meals. I can't believe the prices: $18.95 pasta, $20 seafood paella (dinner prices). Mostly the amount of food for that price. Unbelieveable!!

I'll be back.
