Brazas Market & Churrasqueira Bridges the Gap Between Danbury and Portugal

Authentic Portuguese eats are something you don’t know you’re missing until you try them. Luckily for us, we have Brazas Market & Churrasqueria right around the corner. This family-owned and -operated local spot boasts some of the most delicious specialty Portuguese pastries, along with an incredible menu of indulgent dishes. 

Many regulars claim it’s the best Portuguese food they’ve had outside of Portugal; some are willing to drive nearly an hour for a bite. To start, the shrimp cakes are a favorite among regulars. Entrees are all accompanied by tasty rice or fries, focusing on the expertly prepared meat and seafood mains. If you want something extra traditional, try the Francesinha, which is a sandwich made with ham, sausage, roast beef or steak, topped high with cheese and a sauce made from tomatoes and beer. 

Try it for yourself next time you’re looking for a globally inspired menu to transport you to another place! Right now they have limited indoor dining, as well as delivery through Grubhub or Seamless.
