  1. Hands down, the best caipirinha (sp?) that I have been able to find in Toronto is at Lula Lounge. They are delish and addictive, and the atmosphere and vibe are relaxed and fun to boot!

      I had one two summers ago at Bymark. It was very potent, or I am a very cheap drunk.

        I find many of the cocktails, mixed drinks, etc. I've tried at Bymark to be excellent.

        I agree on Bymark...best I've ever had!!!!

      2. Nyood makes a pretty fine version.

                I second the Red Violin! Lots of limes which I love!

                  When I went to Red Violin, I was told by the waiter that their caiprinhas are made with vodka and not cachaxa (it does make a difference - it's like substituting vodka for rum). When I asked to have it made with cachaca, they agreed but failed to tell me of the $4.00 upcharge. That and the fact that the food there is awful...

                      The caipirinha I had at Caju was delicious and the chef/owner is Brazilian afterall...


                  1. At Caju they make them correctly with Cachaca, not rum/vodka that most places use.

                      It's true, no substitutions. Once when I was there and ordered a caipirinha, they were out of cacha├ža and thus, weren't making them that night. Thankfully that never happened again!

                        Rio 40 North on St.Clair has them as well as standard Brazilian dishes like (sic.) Feijuada, (sic. again) picana etc.
