Food snobs from Chicago don't think we should ever trek out to the suburbs for awesome ethnic food. Not even kinda-suburbs like Oak Park or Evanston. Make the trip for this place. Feijoada completa and shrimp bobo were DELICIOUS, but save room for dessert! You have to get the flan cake and prestigio cake (chocolate cake with dense coconut filling... More

Tried this place when it first opened and thought it was ok. Reading the sterling reviews on the internet, I decided to give it a try again. Sadly, my initial impression was not far off. The best think we had there was the spectacular lentil soup. I will go back for that but probably not for anything else I had.... More

I think we went to Taste of Brasil more than 3 times, the food was amazing (and reminds a lot our brazilian food). There are so many options (fish, meat and chicken), including the most famous brazilian dish: feijoada. They sell "brigadeiros", the best dessert on earth :) also an amazing chocolate cupcake. Definitely I will go when visit Chicago... More

I am surprised that this isn't listed as one of the top restaurants in Oak Park. Just south of the I-290 expressway on Oak Park Ave., this small store front can easily be missed. By all means, don't let it. From the friendliness of the staff, the freshness of the food, great presentation, and amazing flavors, it is really one... More

We were headed to the Oak Park Conservatory and needed a bite to eat, we drove past and saw this place so circled the block and parked in front. A small clean store front with a few tables and highboys. The staf greeted is with friendly hello and we sat by the front window. We started with the Coxinha and... More

This is a small little cafe with big flavor. Salgados 3.25 ea 3.25 ea I had the Coxinha - very good. Also had a beef Risole - my favorite. Service was friendly and accommodating. Atmosphere was comfortable, but the highlight is the food. Within easy walking distance from the Oak Park older neighborhoods.

You could be driving in near-south Oak Park. Walk into the Oak Park bakery, get nails done, pick up dry cleaning, get the greatest ice cream on earth in this little nook of heaven on the 900 block on South Oak Park Avenue. If you are looking for an authentic, Brazilian fare - Taste of Brasil is it. So many... More

My sister and I dined here on a Friday afternoon so we were able to avoid the crowds. My sister had the Brazilian Meatloaf which I sampled. Oh my I am not one for restaurant meatloaf in general but I have changed my mind. Portion size was generous with a large slab of meatloaf which was stuffed with ham and... More
