From San Jose to Terceira - Luis Lourenco Follows His Heart

In today’s episode of ‘Our Portuguese Table’, we chat with Luis Lourenço, formerly of Bacalhau Grill & Trade Rite Market in San Jose, California. Luis worked for the original owners of Bacalhau Grill as a teenager before working at Safeway and then eventually taking over the market. Luis began serving bacalhau tacos (inspired by Bacalhau à Gomes de Sá) which became well-known across the Bay Area, in California.

He had the opportunity to spend more time in Terceira and jumped at it. He currently operates Louie’s Place in São Bartolomeu, Angra do Heroísmo, Terceira: Stop by when you’re in the neighborhood and tell him Angela & Maria sent you!
