stopped for dinner in danbury. boy - downtown looks happening - plenty of way authentic looking central and south american places of all persuasions.
we had dinner in pantanal, at 87 main. its a market deli kind of place (like the ubiquitous food marts with the way by the pound that populate lower manhatten's food hell). but its all brazilian. and the food is great. very good fejoida - for all you pigs feet lovers - mmmm mmm good. ferouffa (spelling?) the stuff that looks like fried rice - but made from farina, with eggs and pork. marinated grilled beef - tasty, but cooked way to dry and hard for my taste. I bet the owner, who was very helpful, would do us up some rarer, if we asked. delicious fried pork. And all for 2.50 a pound. ravioli - more like a traditional steam table place - didn't know they were brazlian, but the kids liked them.
deserts were good to, especially a corn pudding (like a rice pudding or a tapioca, but with corn), and a decent flan.
there's another brazilian place next store too.. both places were full, almost entirely with brazilians.
