This is a canteen style restaurant / cafe. To be honest they serve the best caipirinha I've ever had in London.

The menu is fairly extensive, a large number of small dishes & main dishes. The food is tapas style and comes on hot sizzling plates which is perfect to share. The clientele consists of an unlikely mix of locals. We got chatting with a top city banker and a girl that's a pop band manager. Both eating with laptops open.

Free wifi ... So great for late night workers.

As Brazilian and South American restaurant are fashionable at the moment, you couldn't be anywhere as far from those with that one... Far from being upmarket or flashy it's situated in near Liverpool Street, 5 min away from Spitafield Market.

It's just a little restaurant were most of the clients are Brazilians and were the TV is on a Brazilian channel (or some music DVD) If there it's football night it can be very busy and EXTREMELY loud...

The first time I went we only stayed 10 min to get some "pao de quejo" (cheese bread). The texture is very different from the one I knew (in Brazil or at home) but the taste is great ! They were as fresh as you can get (always get them fresh) !

The second time, I went there with my family as I wanted to show them what the real Brazilian cuisine is with their "chicken Strogonoff" and the "Feijoada".

The service is very good and friendly and prices are very correct...

A small friendly place at the back of Liverpool St station serving Brazilian food & drinks, as well as other known things. The owner is keen on soccer so Brazilian games are always broadcast.

Food was okay, keep to the simple dishes.
