Looking for Portuguese Bakery

They refer to the POrtuguese sweet bread as pastel....... We know it as masa savada(not sure of the spelling). No mention of malasadas.

Which Super 88 is that? The only one I know is in the South Center Mall(?) - where Target is. Off the Red LIne and Sullivan's Sq

So, where do you eat Chinese food in the Boston are? I had a place I liked on Centre St in JP but they have retired.

Ah, Kim! How lucky you were to be able to get back for the feasts.
I lived on Rockdale at the cemetery. Just between Allen & Grape Street.
Also grew up on Sawyer St and Reynolds, moved to Rochester, then back to NB at Ball's corner.
Finally bought a house on Acushnet Ave just this side of the Freetown line.
You never like the chow mein at the Chinese restaurants?
You like the Boston style of chow mein?
I actually lived on Union St in Brighton for a year or 2. Near St Elizabeth's Hospital.

Only if they have an authentic recipe. They are not like fried dough. Totally different recipe.

TO everyone:

I was just on the phone with Central Bakery in Peabody and they said when the boss gets back from vacation in OCTOBER they will start making them again.
I put a post it on my computer to remind me!

Still unable to get through to the Lowel Portuguese bakery.

Actually both kinds. The true ones are formless, the bakery ones are jelly donut-like.
Someone mentioned St Anthony's church feast in an above post. It seems they have malasadas there.
The North End feasts have a fried dough but the dough is not the same recipe. It is a white dough.

Where abouts were you when you lived in NB? Have you ever found a Chinese restaurant in Boston that makes chow mein they way they do "back home"?
I'm in JP going on 6 yrs. Lived in the North End 7 yrs and have been in and out of Boston since 1987.

Have you ever made it back for the Portuguese feast? It is next weekend.

Spoke to Central just now. The only time they have them is when St Anthony has a feast. They bring some to the bakery to sell.
I'll have to call St Anthony's to find when they will have them next.
Thank you, teezeetoo

I'm originally from New Bedford and had access to ton of Portuguese foods. Now, in Boston, I'm trying to find a bakery for malasadas! The only ones I found were in Cambridge, in a fish market! I bought them, and even though they were in plastic bag, the tasted like FISH!
HELP!
