Searching Boston for a Francesinha (Portuguese)

teaTomE | Feb 3, 2009 06:03 AM

Having tasted this beauty once in London, I'm eager to sample it again and figure that the Portuguese population of Greater Boston may be sufficient enough for this gem to exist somewhere nearby. Has anyone seen this veritable king of sandwiches on menus around town?

From wikipedia:
Francesinha (meaning Little French Girl in Portuguese) is a Portuguese sandwich originally from Porto, made with bread, wet-cured ham, linguiça, fresh sausage like chipolata, steak or roast meat and covered with molten cheese and a hot thick tomato and beer sauce.
