We visited Brazilian Bowl about 10 days ago. I was surprised that, contrary to my expectations, there were more Americans eating there than Brazilians (well maybe 50-50). Having said that, the food is delicious... We had the Bife Acebolado, which is just a thin cut sirloin with grilled onions, rice and beans on the side. But ohh boy, you can't make this "bife" (which is Portuguese for beef and pronounced almost identically - the "I" sounds like "ee") at home... it tastes absolutely different and so much like the ones my Mom made in Brazil a long time ago. A trip through time and a tasty one at that.
The appetizers are worth a trip. If you have never have pastel (a kind of empanada but with thin dough), you are missing out. Pão de queijo, coxinha, all to die for. There are descriptions of what they are in other reviews so I won't repeat them.
The staff is super friendly.
Lastly, if you don't go for extra stuff, it will be cheap. all entrees are less than $10 and are huge - probably good for two meals if you take away the leftovers (at least the bife is, because they serve a pair of steaks, and they are big).
A note to the weak: you will leave smelling a little of grilled steak, so wear clothes that are going to be washed :-) ** maybe the owners would care to invest in a better hood for their kitchen?
