Rice 'n' Beans Restaurant Review

: You can sample a variety of Brazilian flavors here for a bargain price, rice 'n' beans included. Especially popular is the national dish of Brazil, feijoada, a casserole consisting of bacon, Portuguese sausage, pork ribs, beef chunks and two kinds of black beans, and served with white rice, collard greens and yucca. Crispy fried yucca and creamy black bean soup are starters, and mains include ample amounts of fresh fish options. Don’t miss the salads, too, especially the hearts of palm. The portions at Rice 'n' Beans are generous and the atmosphere is intimate.
