Bread pudding at Horta’s in New Bedford.

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.
