Authentic Brazilian Food in LA

Can anyone please let me know of any authentic brazilian restaurants not the meat grill places.

  1. If you enjoy driving up the PCH and seeing the coast unfold along the way then Moqueca 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.

    2. Have your tried Wood Spoon in Downtown LA? I don't know how authentic it is but it sure is delicious ...

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

                  anything brazilian left in LA that wasn't chewed up by

                2. 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.
