After we settled in a shaded place to listen to the music, beers in hand, Donna Parker got us started with tremoico, salty little yellow beans that people here eat like peanuts along with their beer. Also, a dish of fava beans with onions in a sauce.
Donna said, "...when I was young, I used to dance and go to the carnival. Now I come to listen to the music and eat." And dance, sometimes, she told me earlier. Its Donna's goal to make sure I taste every Portuguese specialty they have to offer and the food choices are awesome.
