Porto touts itself as a Portuguese joint, but most of their dishes are intriguing (if not completely insane) riffs on classic, good-ol'-fashion American diner fare. Want French toast? Porto's got banana s'mores stuffed French toast, topped with gram cracker crumble and caramelized maple pecan syrup. How about waffles? Porto has the "Yo Cuz," a mad-cap chicken and waffle sandwich with bacon cheddar waffles and jalapeno maple yogurt glaze.
As if that's not crazy enough, the menu also skews unexpectedly across disparate ethnicities. Take for example, their "Porto Special," a heaping plate of eggs, kielbasa and periogies that are sure to be the envy of Polish grandmothers everywhere. Consider also their culturally confused "Virgin Mary Falafel Tacos," served with a cabbage lime slaw, feta cheese and a yogurt-sumac sauce. What?
