Brazilian feijoada on days other than Saturday?
Just wondering. I often get cravings for this dish multiple times in a week!
Chef Mario Cassini of Caju is from Belo Horizonte in Brazil and makes a wonderful feijoada every weekend as a regular item. It takes about 24 hours to make this dish from scratch, which he does- hence the offering only on weekends. His version is rich, delicious and worth the wait. It's also quite authentic- although he doesn't add as many pig parts as some would like (trotters, snout, tail etc...). I thought it was delicious!
I have only had their picanha and their feijoada, but they have an extensive menu, around $10-15 per dish I believe.
Here is their location and phone number if you need more info. Sorry I couldn't help more!

Gina's in Streetsville has feijoada specials just about all the time, and I believe they are rearranging their menu to nix the pizzas and highlight more of the Portuguese dishes (joy!) - meaning, feijoada daily.
Yes, it's Portuguese style.. can I ask what the difference is? I am assuming the beans, from the recipes I have read. Brazilian is darker, no?
