Saturday Feijoada

There’s a Brazilian tradition that I’m determined to take more advantage of. The Saturday Feijoada. The basics of this dish are rice, beans, fried pork pieces, collard greens, sausage and/or jerked beef, farofa (a root based type flour) and orange slices. It’s a meal that was originally brought to Brazil by the Portuguese and is now the country’s “national dish.”

Our favorite Saturday feijoada place is in the neighborhood of Vila Madalena. Feijoada da Lana kind of reminds me of the amazing restaurant we went to in Bichinho, except this establishment is much more refined.

My second plate wasn’t as pretty. (Yes, second plate.) Sure, it’s heavy. Sure, it’s messy. But I must say it’s delicious.

They even offer free cachaça! (This is almost as good as free water.)

The restaurant doesn’t seem to have a website, but if you are interested in trying it out, here is the info:

  • Rua Aspicuelta, 421 | Vila Madalena, Sao Paulo
  • +(55) 11 3814-9191
