Brazil Cafe, Berkeley

At least that's what I think it's called.
I passed this little street cafe at the top of Univerity and Oxford (on the north side) the other day and it looked very busy. Anyone know about it, or have I just missed all the information?
What's the best thing to try, if anything?

    You mean the trailer in the paint store parking lot?

      The Brazilian trailer is known for their tri-tip served with chimichurri sauce, and their smoothies (mango/ginseng and acai).

        The sandwiches are great, especially the tri-tip as mentioned above (the sauce is actually cilantro-garlic and it is delicious) and the vegetarians (the "Carnaval" and "Lambada")

          Ooh yeah, the sandwiches are giant and made with homemade bread - I particularly like that they use fresh ingredients like corn or hearts of palm.

          I wasn't that impressed, but my nephew and I did have a very refreshing ginko-biloba? energy drink there. I know a lot of people won't agree but I found the relentless music irritating. I liked the falafel place that preceded it a lot better. They had the best, garlicky sauces and pickles.
