Oba Oba is a Brazilian expression that means something like "Yippee!" or "Hot dog!" That's how we feel each time we visit Oba Oba, since we are looking to "matar saudades de" (kill the longing for) real Brazilian cooking! Their menu includes specialties from southern (like Rio Grande do Sul), middle (Minas, Rio de Janeiro), and northeastern (Bahia, Pernambuco) Brazilian cuisine. Our first visit was rewarded with a delectable moquequa (a Bahian fish stew), but about every other time we get our favorite, picanha (pic-AHN-yah). I will be amazed if you try and do not absolutely LOVE this uniquely Brazilian cut and style of slowly grilled beef. No matter how done you prefer, the rich, succulent, melt-in-your-mouth tender beef will cause you to want to order another plate! At the reasonable price for dinner for two of about $28 (last visit), it would be easy to submit to the temptaion! If you've never tried picanha, or other Brazilian dishes, do yourself a favor and try Oba Oba. Hint: Brazilians dine late, so we beat the crowds by going at lunch or getting there before 7:00 pm for dinner.
