Brasilian Feijoada Completa

  • b

Is there anyplace that serves a (nearly?) genuine Feijoada in Toronto ( hopefully accompanied by a couple of caipirinhas )?

  1. There's a stretch of Dundas St. west of Ossington/Dovercourt but east of Dufferin that has a handful of Brazilian spots. Some (most?) do feijoada on Saturdays. I like it at Casa Do Churrasco (1330 Dundas St. W., 416-588-2139). There's also Brazilian Star, 1242 Dundas St. W.

      They now serve it at Segovia's on Augusta Street in Kensington Market. It's only for take out but it's very good.

        Amazing, I'm going to try the take-out this Saturday. Thanks for this recommendation, even though I believe it is not a Brazilian establishment.

          I'm pretty sure that there's a dance club that serves feijoada on Sundays. My information is sketchy because I've never been. We have had some Brazilian friends staying with us recently who have gone for dancing and feijoada. I'll try to find out the name of the place and the rest of the details. Oh, and the feijoada is actually served free of charge with club admission, I believe. Again, sorry about the lack of details.

            I think you're thinking of Mana on College street. I think they also have free feijoada on Thursdays as well. I'm told by Brazilian friends it's good, not great. But what would you expect for free?

              I believe that's the name of the place, zsd. Thanks for clarifying.

            The owner of Segovia's is Chilean but his wife is from Brazil and has added some Brazilian items to the store.

              Thanks. I finally stopped my procrastination and visit Segovia's earlier this afternoon to get the take-out Feijoada. The price was $8 plus taxes coming to $9.04 in total. Walked over to the park in Kensington Market and had my lunch outdoors in this great spring weather. My only complaint was the meat portions in my feijoada was very little with mostly rice, black beans and other ingredients in my food order. Hope they aren't that stingy every time on the meat. LOL However, I already know that I'm going to be a "repeat customer" because I don't really know many other places that serve Brazilian Feijoada as take-out.

                Glad you got to try it. There's also a back patio now where you can eat behind the neighbouring restaurant, El Gordo. (El Gordo's owner and Segovia's owner are brothers.)

      2. Caju on Queen just before Shaw has it on the menu. Portuguese feijoada is excellent but quite different, more like cassoulet.

        1. I'd like to make my own feijoada, but I'm not sure where I can get carne seca. Any suggestions?
