There's a lot happening in this no-frills, mostly-takeout spot. In one corner, smoothies are being blended. In another, empanadas are being warmed. Brazilian main courses, such as feijoada (a pork-and-bean stew), are furiously assembled behind the counter, and creamy Brazilian truffles are sold by the cashier. This all means you can get a fix of Brazilian foods pretty quickly. But in their hurry, these folks often forget the salt.
