    At Favela, the Moqueca de Peixe is simmered with dende oil, green herbs, tomatoes and coconut milk and is served with pirão, a starchy side made with cassava flour, greasy pan drippings and pureed. Read more

    Favela offers a greatest hits of Brazilian cuisine-maybe you won't need to go to Newark's Ironbound anymore. You can't beat Favela for bar snacks, either: Pick the carne de sol Read more

    My group ate "carne seca com aipim", "bolinhos de aipim com queijo", "queijo empanado" and they loved it! For entrees, "stroganoff de frango" "picanha", "Caldo verde", ALL AWESOME!!!

    Conquer and destroy... Nothing was left... The rice and beans were great, the same goes for the Farofa! And for dessert, "bolo de banana flambado"... WOW!!!! Definitely coming back!

    The Strogonoff de Frango is a very nice Brazilian take on a traditionally Russian dish! Slightly sweeter and creamier that other versions I've had.

    Get one of the mistos. Beware though, it's a lot of meat. We always go home with leftovers. Totally worth it though!

    Took mom here for Mother's Day, the service was horrible. The waiter (not w/ braces) was so rude. Purposely didn't bring me water but brought to the table who didn't ask for it! Only part of it!

    Uma verdadeira favela brasileira no Brooklyn NYC. Meticulosamente pensado em cada detalhe para levar uma verdadeira reprodução dos mais tradicionais butecos do Brasil para a grande maçã.
