Euro 2008 - Portugal

Although Portugal had an excellent start to Euro 2008, things came to a fairly abrupt end when they ran into Germany in the quarter finals. After making it to the final of Euro 2004, only to lose to Greece, much was expected of Portugal again this time around. In the end, Portugal's defence was exposed by the Germans, and Portuguese fans will be going home disappointed.

I have to admit I was a bit worried about finding Portuguese eateries in Brisbane, but I've managed to find a couple.

The only restaurant I've been able to track down is is Figueiredo's at Annerley. I haven't been able to find out much about Figueiredo's, but it seems to be a Portuguese and Indian BYO restaurant. If you've eaten at Figueiredo's before, please post up a comment.

Another spot you can try out Portuguese food is the Portuguese Family Centre at Carole Park. According to ourbrisbane.com, the Portuguese Family Centre is open for dinner on Saturday night, and Sunday lunches. Bookings are essential though.

Finally, there's Nando's. I'm not Portuguese, and I haven't made it to Portugal yet, so I can't vouch for the authenticity of Nando's chicken. There are plenty of Nando's outlets around Brisbane now, which means there is probably one not very far from your place.

I've eaten at Figueiredo's, but it was probably close to 10 years ago. We had curry, I don't think I even realised they also had Portuguese food. The takeaway menu on their website seems to be predominantly Indian dishes. Might need to give them another try.

Nice. Check out our blog for the euro cup - http://theeurocupandplate.wordpress.com/ Going out for dinner sounds soooo much easier :-)

Next time I'm over at Annerley I'll check out the menu to see how much Portugese food there actually is on it.
