    If you enjoy driving up the PCH and seeing the coast unfold along the way then Moqueca http://www.moquecarestaurant.com/ in Channel Islands Harbor, Oxnard is a good bet.

      Totally agree. I went there based on Servorg's rec with the family and we all loved it. Delicious.

      Have your tried Wood Spoon in Downtown LA? I don't know how authentic it is but it sure is delicious ...http://woodspoonla.com

        I don't live in your area but we visit Rio every year. This really does sound pretty much authentic. I'm jealous :)

                  Not a restaurant, but in the back of El Camaguey Market on Venice there is a guy who cooks up different Brazilian dishes (picanha, coxinha, feijoada etc).

                  It is pretty good, but I've never been to Brazil so I can't really compare. I think the feijoada might be a Saturday only thing and they're closed on Sundays.

                    In Brazil, Saturday is usually feijoada day.
