Good Music & Good Books: The Best Environment For Your Dinner

Are you looking for a cozy place to have lunch or dinner and are up for changing up your meal choices? Do you like a rustic environment that’s suitable not just for eating, but for chatting with friends, or perhaps having a meal solo with a good book in one hand and your fork or cup of coffee in the other?

Coxinha, what is it?

coxinhaThere is perhaps no Brazilian street food more delicious and well-known than the world-wide famous coxinha.  The coxinha is traditionally formed to resemble its main ingredient: chicken.  The golden, crunchy outside of the coxinha surrounds a layer of soft dough filled with moist shredded chicken, tomato, onions, parsley, scallions, and sometimes different cheeses.  The doughy pocket is closed off and deep-fried, creating a crispy, mouth-watering snack that can easily be eaten in three or four bites.  In Brazil, everyone has their own way of eating a coxinha.  Some people prefer to eat coxinha at breakfast.  For others, it is strictly a lunch or dinner snack.  Others won’t eat a coxinha without some red-hot pepper sauce on the side to dip each bite.
