Bossa Nova serves casual Brazilian food at three locations in Los Angeles.
We visited the one in West L.A.
Pao de queijo ($6.49).
Bossa's Salad -- shrimp, Romaine, tomatoes, roasted almonds, Gorgonzola, homemade croutons, red onions, homemade balsamic vinaigrette dressing ($10.99).
Coxinha -- shredded chicken and cheese inside deep-fried breaded dough ($3.99).
Croquete de camarão -- shrimp and cheese inside a deep fried breaded dough ($3.99).
Filet com abacax -- Grilled tenderloin filet with pineapple, caramelized onions, arugula, and Monterey Jack on a hamburger bun ($9.99).
Steak marinated in Brazilian herbs and spices, rice, beans, salsa, yucca flour, fried plantains ($16.99).
I quite liked this meal, but I prefer Cafe Brazil if given the choice.
