Has anyone had the tapa,pimientos de padrone,in a tapas bar in the Bay Area? I fell in love with these when I was in Madrid and introduced to them by a fellow pepper lover. They are peppers that look like jalapenos and as a tapa they seem to be broiled after being coated lightly with olive oil and salt. In Spain, you are given a plateful and it's almost akin to a culinary Russian roulette for these peppers can be mild or very hot and it's an amusing little game to play in the taparia to see who will be unlucky enough to get the hot ones. They are so very tasty and I'm wondering if someone has come across them here?

Does anyone have a recommendation for good Portugese food in the Bay Area? I now have a craving for it after reading about the Big Dog's adventures and remembering some of my experiences in Newark.
