I quite liked this meal, but I prefer Cafe Brazil if given the choice.


  1. This is our go-to place for delivery... So bummed the one by my place closed. :(

  2. I can't get over how lucky you are to have a Brazilian restaurant preference! I think there's only one choice by me.

  3. deep fried balls are always good. always.

  4. somehow, tater always beats me to whatever i was going to say. drat.
