Riverfront Times' Description
Yemanja Brasil preserves the authenticity of Brazilian cuisine as much as possible given the limited availability of the extraordinary fishes, fruits, spices and other raw materials native to South America. Be prepared to duke it out with a few red-hot chile peppers. Feijoada, for example, a stew of pork and black beans that serves as Brazil's national dish, is aggressive enough to sandbag anyone whose palate hasn't been in training. Many of Yemanja's dishes are deep-fried as well as spicy. But Brazil's cuisine is one of the most appealing in the world, and Yemanja does a fine job of introducing us to it.
Tips from foursquare
The caipirinhas are AWESOME! This is the national cocktail of Brazil made with a lot of real limes and Cachaça (Portuguese pronunciation: [kaˈʃasɐ]) a liquor made from fermented sugarcane .
Bring friends and share appetizers. So much to eat! Though there are plenty of meat dishes, the menu still is vegetarian-friendly. Portabella... mmm.
Empanadas de bife y xingu!
Seafood stewin coconut cream is outstanding
You must try the picanya!
