Another portuguese pastry shop just open here in the east, "Sweet Maria's" in Wilson, NC. They do all kinds of portuguese pastries including "pasteis de nata". Nice folks originally from; Sesimbra, Portugal. So... Things are starting to happen here in the east!!! It is about time!!!

Hi Portuguese girl!
I live in Charlotte for 1 and a half year now, and I haven't met any other Portuguese here (I've met Brazilians though). Have you found any bakeries or other stuff? Till now, the best I could find here is some canned salmonated trouts from Estarreja at a Dean&Deluca store, wine at Total Wine chains and Porto wine at Harris Teeter!
Please let me know what you have found so far!

Default Brazilian shops in Monroe Road

Prior to leaving the Charlotte area I found out about Coisas do Brasil and another little store nearby.

For the Portuguese from Portugal, coisas do braisl has:
bacalhau
Pasteis de bacalhau (which are actually VERY good)
Rissois de camarao (not the very best)
caldos knorr (much better and stronger than the ones you buy at the normal grocery stores)
and other things

Harris Teeter now sells Portuguese chourico

Hope this helps. I do not know of many portuguese in the Charlotte area, but I do know there are quite a few Brazilians

Anyone know of any BRASILIAN restaurant or food market in Charlotte, and any educational (language, groups, places of music from Brasil) in Charlotte?

Thanks!

You may want to post this in the Myrtle Beach forum to get more help.

I have found persons born in Portugal listed on the federal census records of 19th century NC. One such was E. F. Bettencourts near Wilmington in New Hanover County. He was a large slaveholder (60 enslaved persons in 1850). Clusters of Portuguese born North Carolinians may be found in New Hanover, Onslow, and Craven counties.
