Enjoy deliciously authentic Portuguese dishes lovingly prepared by... you guessed it, Portuguese cooks! It’s real, it’s tasty and it’s ready for you when you arrive!
It all started in 2018. Three co-workers shared a wish, a dream among them. All of them from different parts of the world. Maria came from Mexico, Linete from Angola and Nubia is Brazilian but already lived in Portugal. They all came to Canada to seek a better life for their families. To make this possible, they always worked hard. We all have our own history and path, and by fate or chance it was decided that these three women would meet. They worked together in the food business. They worked hard, but always with a smile and a lot of professionalism. Satisfied customers became friends and soon the service became familiar. Behind the hard work was a distant, almost hypothetical dream of starting their own business. One day this wish was shared among them, the surprise was that they all had the same motivation. That topic was the subject of conversation for several weeks in a row, then they decided to talk to their families and asked the opinion of some friends. It was with a twinkle eyes that this three women decided to open their own business.
Opening your own business is a marathon, just like going through a path with many ups and downs, a lot of research, a lot of learning, but also some frustrations. At the end, prime motivation, Customers. Customers are our compass, our strength to continue. It’s for them that everything happens, who keeps alive this desire to serve better.
