Brazilian grocery store

Hi, I'm hoping to make feijoada and I need to find a place to purchase the ingredients such as the farofa and the carne seca. I'm not Brazilian, though I've enjoyed what Brazilian food I've had the pleasure to eat. I figured there might be a place in the outer boroughs near the subway that carries Brazilian staples. If there's a place in Manhattan, even better.

    There's a Brazilian supermarket in Astoria/LIC, I forget the name, on 36th ave and, I think, 33rd street. It's just off the N at the 36th street stop. They should have what you need or point you to a some place close.
