Unassuming and humble both in location and décor, Horta’s might be the best place to grab Portuguese style fish and chips. Offering both dine-in and take-out options, for less than $10 you can easily feed two grown adults. Family run, the place may remind you of a bygone time when restaurants’ teams consisted of fathers and uncles bringing in the daily catch, aunts and grandmothers cooking up the meal, and sons and daughters serving customers. With a small dining room, takeout is particularly popular Thursday through Saturday. Seafood options are plentiful, including a shrimp Mozambique that maintains a healthy rivalry with Novo Mundo for “best” status among diners.
