Eat Brazilian, and Practice Portuguese!

Rice 'n' Beans

Check out this tiny Brazilian hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Hell's Kitchen, where just about anyone will love the food. Pick your favorite meat, and a sauce and you are all set. Try sides of fried yucca and sweet plantains. The traditional caldo verde soup (potatoes, finely shredded kale and sliced sausage) is the best I have had in Manhattan! The Carnival Salad is also a great choice. Be authentic and order Guarnana for your beverage. The waiters will speak to you in Portuguese as well, if you are so inclined...
