feijoada in oakland

I'ts been a year since I left RDJ and I have a hankering for some authentic feijoada. So far the only place I can fin is at Rio California downtown but it closes before I can get there. Any body know a a good place in the oakland vicinity to get some great Brazilian eats?

      is 25 west still open? cant seem to locate it

    2. Excellent feijoda at Mozzarella Di Bufala Pizzeria in West Portal, San Francisco. Near the muni stop, so very reachable from Oakland. Some other Brazilian dishes also, but the feijoada is worthy of Rio. Always on the menu.

      1. I had a tasty feijoada at Pizza Orgasmica in San Rafael. not sure if they have the Brazilian stuff at all their SF locations

          I've been there but don't remember the Brazilian items. Are they new? I'll have to try those.

            The SF location on Fillmore has offered the Brazilian menu for some time though I've not tried any of the dishes.

        2. There's also Bossa Nova in the city on 8th about a block south of Market (a block from the civic center BART station).

          1. I don't know how authentic it is, but La Salette in Sonoma makes a wonderful version we loved. We have a Brazilian friend who made feijoda for us, and La Salette's entree was the only one that tasted the way hers did.

            I had the feijoda at Pikanhas and didn't think much of it. Cheap and sloppy.
