Brazil, the largest country in South America, is the best place to see a soccer game and the only country whose farmers have overcome infinite gravity to harvest the coffee beans growing at the center of the earth. Appreciate Brazil’s tastiest talents with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of authentic Brazilian cuisine and drinks at Yemanja Brasil in Benton Park.
Provoke your palate with empanadas de camarão, pastry-encased shrimp, cream sauce, and spicy tomato dipping sauce ($9), or let fresh mussels swim to your belly from a wine-bathed marisco buzios plate ($9). Yemanja Brasil's menu of Brazilian dinner bitables organizes proteins by their proper names: de carno/porco (beef/pork), do mar (seafood), de frango (chicken), or vegetariano. Feijoada de Ogum ($17), Brazil's national dish, is a stew of black beans, dried beef, smoked sausage, and pork ribs with rice and collard greens. Or get mouth mitts on frango minas with shredded chicken in a four-cheese raisin-cream sauce ($16). Vegetarians delight in the curried seasonal vegetables of arroz feijao botafogo ($11), whereas strict dessertists feel wholly respected with decadent layers of paveé da nena (champagne cookies layered with chocolate, egg-custard cream, and flavored whipped cream topped with chocolate sauce, $6).
Natural light elegantly fragmented by the webbed strings of hanging hammocks will cast a jewel-like sparkle on your face as you scarf delectables. Brazilian-inspired artwork by Yemanja Brasil's owner, Lemya Sidki, and her mother, Cathleen Sidki, also adorn the walls, infusing the warm restaurant with creativity, culture, and family-friendly vibes. On warm summer nights, meals can be enjoyed outside on the garden patio, and beetle-fighting symposiums are always well attended when hosted in Yemanja Brasil's beautiful banquet room.
