Best Spanish or Portuguese-style garlic shrimp in Newark area?

freshfigs | Aug 26, 2010 07:51 AM

I know garlic shrimp is offered at numerous Portuguese and Spanish restaurants in Newark's Ironbound neighborhood and elsewhere, but I was wondering which places offer the best version of this dish in the Newark area (Newark-Kearny-Harrison-Belleville).

I have been to the Iberian restaurants of the Newark area many times in the past but I honestly can't recall which places, if any, prepare a really superior version of this dish. I mean, garlic shrimp is pretty ubiquitous, but does anyone have a really standout version?

I'm asking because a friend has requested to meet for lunch or dinner in the Newark area this weekend and specifically wants to have this dish.

Thanks in advance.
