Here's to start.

House of the Hanging Chicken

A bit different from what you expect in a local barbecue chicken presentation.

Not only chicken, they also have Hanging Shrimp.

From the word ESPETADA, which means in Portuguese, a large chunks of beef rubbed in garlic and salt, and skewered onto a bay leaf stick. To make it more simple, ESPETADA is meat on a stick (in a Portuguese way).

Asking if it is AFFORDABLE? Yes, it is!
