Brasil Legal and my mistake...

CMC | Apr 29, 2003 11:55 AM

I live almost at the corner of Fullerton and Western so when I read about Brasil Legal being just south of Fullerton with a Brazilian flag in the window I had the wrong place in mind. Brasil Legal, it turns out, is the second store with a Brazilian flag just south of Fullerton. I took to the street yesterday to figure this out as I couldn't believe that the place JUST south of Fullerton was Brasil Legal and was a good source for food (the place right off Fullerton serves some mighty bad looking pizza and other frozen/then-fried-up type stuff). Turns out Brasil Legal is a few blocks south of the place I THOUGHT was being discussed.

So in addition to my needing to check the real deal out I feel I should point out that the other place, north of Brasil Legal is mainly a corner convenience/liquor store. However, they do have a fair amount of Brazilian items that Brasil Legal probably has as well (but not exaclty staples of your average corner store). I also mentioned in a previous post about Mexican Coke and Pepsi. This is the place I'm referring to.
