New in Port Chester: Brazileirinho Cafe

adamclyde | Mar 31, 200811:34 AM    

I was heading to lunch elsewhere in Port Chester today, but when I saw that the old Los Paisanos place (http://www.chowhound.com/topics/434988 ) was now gone and in its place was a new, bright little brazilian place, I slammed on my brakes, made an illegal u-turn and headed there for lunch (thank me later for sacrificing my life on a rainy afternoon for the sake of my chowhound friends...).

The place does a good little lunch buffet for $3.99 a pound. The buffet is about 10 feet long, with about 4 or 5 different salads, about 4 entree type dishes, and the standard, rice, beans and soups.

I got some good roast pork, a nice herby cabbage salad, rice, beans (pinto, not black), pork, some pasta, chicken, etc. I tried to sample as much as I could. The best way I'd describe this is brazilian comfort food. It was nice, homey food that was very satisfying for lunch. Plus, my dinner, plus a can of guarana was less than $6.

The pork had great flavor, if a bit overcooked. The chicken was very good. The beans, sprinkled with farofa, was earthy and comforting - perfect for the cold, rainy day.

They didn't have feijoada, but they said that they make it on Saturdays.

Anyhow, it's a nice little place. I wouldn't call it a destination place, by any means, but nice brazilian comfort food akin to what you find at Brasil Cafe on Main. I haven't been there in quite some time, but it would be worthwhile to do a side by side compare...

Hmm. That's a good idea. I think I have my marching orders for the coming week...
