Regional Brazilian in Newark area?

I'm from the NE of Brazil -- anyone know where I can get some regional specialities (moqueca, vatapá, carurú, carne de sol c/abóbora, etc) in perhaps a more laid-back atmosphere (don't need parrots and plastic palm trees) than most of the places in Newark? Nothing against churrasco but it's not really the food I grew up with. It seems like there has to be a little café somewhere...Any ideas? Thanks!

  1. Without knowing if it's the answer, I'll recommend you look at the Samba

    1. Look at Delicias de Minas, on McWhorter St. Buffet with pricing by the pound. Basic, but good, so I'm told (no personal experience). Not exactly NE Brazil, but maybe more authentic than some.
