I love you, Filial!!
Thanks to you, I had a most wonderful Saturday afternoon feijoada
experience. I ate, ate some more, drank, drank some more, was introduced to an amazing new Cachaca and had one of the best afternoon naps of my life. Is there really anything better than stuffing your face with slow cooked pork and beer and then rubbing your belly straight into sleepy town. Me thinks not.
The place itself is also adorable. Packed full of character and characters, namely the whistling waiter that sounds like a cross between a bird and a cell phone. Very funny. There are checkerboard white and black floors and wood tables that are close together to other parties, but not so close that you feel cramped. More like you are part of a bigger, fun experience.
The service is amazing and the food, well, look at the star rating. This gringa is very happy. They also take credit cards at the valet which is awesome and I wonder why more places don't do that. Great idea.
Overall, I would return here in a heartbeat and I plan to at some point before I leave. They also have really late hours, so if you are craving some traditional grub at any hour of the day or night, you're welcome. :)
