I would like to try this food hot off the grill, but overall everything we ordered was really good. We both had a bowl, one with shrimp the other with sausage and could flavor overall. Worth the price, which was very reasonable.

Small, cramped, noisy. Who cares when the food is so good. I went to this place many times and tried almost everything. One of my Brazilian coworkers assured me that their feijoada is one of the best. The bisteca melts in your mouth. The Stroganoff is so deliciously flavored, you want more. And if you want a Brazilian twist on... More

I'm so glad I've found this little gem of a restaurant. Really affordable and delicious food. The appetizer coxinha (shredded chicken in a soft fried dough is almost a meal in itself! I've learned to order those to go so I can actually savor their amazing entries. The Brazilian national dish, feijoada (black bean stew with pork meat) is absolutely... More

My husband and I ate at this charming little brazilian delight last night! We both got the Brazilian Bowl with chicken, so original I know, but it was delicious! The food tasted so fresh, so colorful! We will definitely be regulars at this place!

We searched for a nearby restaurant and when this one came up, my daughter, who lives in the city, said that she had always wanted to try it...so we did. Delightful staff welcomed us to this small dining establishment, and explained the menu to us. When he explained that most folks started with the featured Brazilian Bowl, we followed his... More

This place is in our new Chicago neighborhood, and it will now be one of our "go-to" places. Very reasonable prices ($7.95) for the bowls, which are filled wiith the meat, veggies and sauce of your choice. The place was crowded (always a good sign) as they also do a good take-out business. They have smoothies that are very fresh... More

So, once upon a time, right after 9/11 when I needed to escape NYC, I went to Brasil. Fortunately my ex-namorado and amigo of 27 years (now) was visiting his family, so I phoned and asked to come visit for three weeks. Being a lovely Brasileiro and a genuine good person, he agreed. So, for my 21 days there, I... More
