We’re doing a retro malt shop.  Burgers, fries, onion rings, coleslaw, pickles, malts and shakes.

Wow! That’s a lot of food! We are only having pizzas and dessert bars for our late night apps. Personally, what you have currently sounds pretty good to me ๐Ÿ™‚

 

How big is your guest list? How late are you having your late night table?

@indecisivebride89:  I’m Portuguese.  Are they Brazilian or Azorean or mainlanders?  That will determine what food they might be thinking of.  If you want to include a Portuguese twist to the pizza, see if anywhere will do linguiça on the pizza.  It’s a Portuguese sausage, a little spicy, very tasty.  Chorizo is also something we eat, but the Portuguese version is a hard, smoked sausage instead of the loose Mexican crumbles, so that’s one to watch out for.  Grilled sardines are really popular with my family, we eat them a lot at parties, and there’s also a thing called bifanas, which is basically roasted pork loin on Portuguese rolls.  Really tasty, if you eat pig (which I don’t, but my cousins fight over these things).  Portuguese food, especially Azorean food, tends not to be too expensive, since the Azores are not the wealthiest part of Portugual.  But the emphasis on seafood can be rough for American budgets.

@indecisivebride89:  Portuguese Midnight Seafood Buffet Normall Includes:

Baby Lobster, Crab, Muscles, Shrimp, Calimari, Cod and Shrimp croquettes.

 

OBVIOUSLY thats $$$ so I would suggest just adding the Cod and Shrimp croquettes. This would keep your Fiance family happy and you’d know theres lots of food and be good with it ๐Ÿ™‚

These are the more traditional shape of them, but basically they’re cod or shrimp cakes instead of things like a crab cake. (ignore the food in the middle)

Apparently, having a massive amount of delicious food is traditional for Portuguese weddings.  Here’s one of the menus I found:

Portuguese Late-Night Buffet

An Assortment of Portuguese Pastries, Decorated Fruit Displays, Ice Carvings and array of Seafood including shelled shrimps with spicy pimento sauce, chilled Baby Lobsters, Dungeness Crab, Mussels and Oysters, Sole, Squid, as well as an assortment of Hot Seafood and Portuguese Rice, Relish Platter, European Sweet Table and Wedding Cake Service, Authentic Oven Baked Pizza, Coffee and Tea

@indecisivebride89:  Can’t you ask your Future Mother-In-Law what she means by “Portuguese options”? Maybe they can provide them, in fact?

the portuguese rotisserie chicken place across from my house makes these amazing sort of doughy dumpling things with delicous chicken inside that are deep fried.  no idea what they’re called but they’d make amazing late-night finger food! 

 

you could also always add custard tarts either to your dessert table or as something sweet on your late-night table.  portuguese custard tarts are a classic and popular portuguese item and DELICIOUS, not pricey, andcould be purchased from a bakery a day in advance and just be brought out and put on the table at the key moment. I’m sure you could get a couple dozen for under twenty bucks.

I think a lot of portuguese food is salty and a little greasy in a delicious comfort-food kind of way — perfect for late night drinking snacks!  I’d be super excited about this if i was at your wedding. i have no portuguese heritage but i do live in a portuguese immigrant neighbourhood which comes with some tasty perks.

That sounds awesome! Our late night table will only be coffee and pastries… but we have to be out of the venue at 11 anyway, so we don’t want people getting TOO comfortable. ๐Ÿ˜‰

@indecisivebride89:  For our late night table we brought out cocktail sandwiches (roast beef and ham) chips and dip, pretzels, and the venue actually brought out the left over appetizers (they reorganized them so they didn’t look picked over) again which was very nice! Not sure what to suggest for Portuguese foods but it sounds like your menu is delicious already!
