If one is looking for a truly untranslatable word in Portuguese, he or she should look no further than right around the corner, to those simple no-frills restaurant serving large portions of traditional food. Served onto large aluminum platters. That would be a tasca or in local slang tasquinha, a type of "restaurant" that only exists in Portugal. It’s not a Spanish bodega, nor an Italian osteria. Enjoy an authentique Portuguese food experience in-between the "real"homies. Taste the real deal, what locals usually get at home from their grannies. It doesn't get more genuine.
