One of the reasons why I really wanted to visit Brazil was feijoada. Once considered as “poor man’s food”, nowadays feijoada is prepared at some of the best restaurants in São Paulo or Rio de Janeiro. The Brazilian national stew consists of black beans, various parts of pork (ribs, ears, tongues, sausages, etc) and beef; served with fresh oranges, collard greens, roasted cassava flour, rice and other side dishes. Feijoada is the ultimate comfort food, that’s why even in Brazil, is not cooked every day. At Figueira Rubaiyat steakhouse in São Paulo, feijoada is served on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The restaurant is located in the exclusive São Paulo Jardins district and is owned by the same owners as Cabaña Las Lilas in Buenos Aires.
