This authentic Brazilian restaurant and cafe is shrouded in leafy green foliage and decorated with bright colors, with an adjoining airy patio. It's part of Culver City's Brazilian-style neighborhood and now includes a sister location on Washington Boulevard in West Los Angeles. Both locations are veritable hot spots for Brazilian culture, sports and music.
Mostly, you'll find grilled animals at Cafe Brasil: pork chops, lamb chops, steak, shrimp and fish, all profoundly salty and resonant with garlic, charred at the edges, fragrant with citrus and a little overcooked. With all this protein come truckloads of rice glistening with oil, sweet fried plantains and spicy black beans. Cafe Brasil also serves wonderful feijoada on weekends, less offal-intensive than some versions but meat-fragrant in the best possible way.
