Does anybody know where I can get some Brazilian food ingredients in Manhattan, if not in NYC? Thanks!

      Thank you for your information!! You sound like a Brazilian. Do you happen to know a good moqueca recipe?

      In Manhattan Buzios is the best. If you are willing to travel to Queens there is a Brazilian supermarket that will have a much larger selection of Brazilian products, it's called Rio Bonito. But if what you need is ingredients for moqueca you will need the dende oil and coconut milk and Buzios will have those.

          Rio Bonito closed. At least it's location on northern blvd closed. Unfortunately

          I will have to try Buzios.

            You don't sound like you are happy with Buzios.

              If it's the same company, there's one a block east of the 36th Avenue N/Q stop in Astoria.
