Toma La “The Portuguese Pit Stop” is a small fast paced BBQ style restaurant. For those of you that are curious, the name "Toma La" means "Here You Go" in English. Any of my family/friends know that my husband is known for his "Toma La" slang word, So I figured I would incorporate that into the business name, and "The Portuguese Pit Stop" is for our non-portuguese clientele.
Our goal is to bring a little bit of Portugal and it's traditions to the cultured people of Hamilton. When you walk in our doors you will be overcome by the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of Portugal. All of our meat will be grilled to perfection on a natural open fire charcoal pit while you wait. It will be served on either fresh portuguese bread from a local bakery or on a dish with your choice of a side. You will be able to customize your sandwich with whichever toppings you would like.
The meat will be prepared/marinated the night before, therefore, it will absorb all the natural seasonings. The famous Portuguese style BBQ Chicken will also be available daily. This will be served with our very own "Toma La Piri Piri Sauce" and your choice of sides. Chicken is slow-cooked over our open fire charcoal pit for the true authentic portuguese tasting chicken! Please visit our website at www.tomala.ca for more menu options.
We have many ideas, and a very big vision for "Toma La". Excited to make this dream a reality. We continue to work hard in order to succeed in every possible way. Toma La is committed to surpassing every customers needs, your satisfaction is extremely important to us. We will work with our clients until they are completely satisfied. Feel free to check back on our Website, Facebook or Twitter for any news/updates and/or promotions we might be offering.
Toma La is coveniently located on the corner of Upper James Street & Rymal Road (Hamilton,ON) in the Fortinos plaza, next to Once Upon A Child.
Look forward to seeing you soon :)
