 Os Caldos /Soups

"Friends and I were blown away when we encountered "Costela Bam-Bam at {Favela Grill}.

 Though the serving was only a single rib—that rib was dinosaur-size. Swinging from the rib's length was a hammock of meat, roasted to deep, caramelized perfection, yet miraculously pink and bloody in the middle. It sliced like a giant roast, and took several of us to finish it.

(The Village Voice)

"Feijoada...the country's national dish... {At Favela} It's worth the wait: The hearty, garlicky black-bean stew is flavored with dried beef, sausage, bacon, pork trimmings and ribs, held together with farofa (cassava flour) and served over rice".

(Time out Magazine)

 Grilled top sirloin “a classic cut” incredibly tender served with farofa (seasoned cassava flour) and vinaigrette sauce.

A classic Brazilian fish stew made with dende oil, green herbs, onions, tomatoes and coconut milk served with pirão (a puree made of pan dripping and cassava flour).
