Stopped in today for Portuguese bread because Stop and Shop was out yet again. Man, is it ever good. Perfect chewy crust, tender crumb, and only $2.50 for a big loaf. The friendly woman behind the counter sliced it for me, too.

A genoa and provolone sandwich was so good, I had to fire up a grilled cheese to further test the breads awesomeness. It passed with flying colors, much better than any Portuguese bread I've had from a grocery store.

They're on Park about halfway between New Park and Prospect, on the left if you're heading towards downtown. Right across from King & I Thai. Plenty of off street parking.

I'll be going back regularly.
