Feijoada - Saturdays only on Miami Beach

Lunch Hound Nov 17, 2007 12:42 PM

Via Brasil (6616 Collins Ave.) has a very passable feijoada (13.95 for one, $24.95 for two)that they serve Saturdays only. The stew itself has all kinds of great fatty and chewy pig parts as well as carne secca (dried beef) and beans. It's served with rice, finely sliced collard greens (couve), orange slices and farofa, I don't exactly know what farofa is but it's like eating delicious sand! They have caiparihnas, beer and Guarana, Brazilian soda.

This is a tiny little diner type place, - nothing fancy at all.

Incidentally, the Fish with Shrimp sauce and the Moqueca de Peixe were both pretty uninteresting.

    Sounds great. FYI, farofa is roughly ground and toasted yuca that is typical to sprinkle over feijoada.

    Looking forward to joining the lunch group sometime soon!

      Don't know when we can make it, as I always work Saturdays, but it sounds like fun!

        Check out Boteco (916 NE 79th street MIAMI) just East of Byscaine on 79th.
        I heard they have a great feijoada on Saturdays...

          At Boteco, it's only the first Saturday of each month. So, this Saturday they are on.
