Owner Jorgina Pereira, whose Brazilian upbringing and culinary training sparked her penchant for the country’s cuisine, crafts authentic South American platters that have garnered acclaim from ABC7’s Hungry Hound Steve Dolinsky. During weekday lunches, entrees including coconut-infused shrimp Bobo or Brazilian top sirloin steak are served alongside all-you-can-eat portions of sides such as heart of palm salad and basmati rice, silencing stomachs’ growls or whistled renditions of Carnivale tunes.

On Sundays, an all-you-can-eat brunch buffet collects specialty meat and seafood dishes with supplementary hot sauces and chutneys. Quick-fried plantains indulge sweet teeth with buttery bites, and a salad of freshly sliced oranges helps guests to attain vitamin C or visualize plans to steal the sun. As visitors sip on Brazilian coffee, tea, or juice, slices of cassava or banana cake ($2/slice) prepare sweet denouements for the leisurely nosh.


Brazilian-born chef Jorgina Pereira relies on ingredients such as cassava root, collards, and coconut to infuse stews and stir-fries with tropical flavors at Sinhá. Pereira prepares her homeland's cuisine at home, welcoming guests into her historic brick townhouse for intimate meals in the mid-afternoon and private events in the evenings. In addition to doling out tropical comestibles at its brick-and-mortar location, the staff takes a custom catering menu on the road with Brazilian musicians, dressing for events in a Carmen Miranda-like uniform of flowing dresses and fruit-filled head dresses. Sinhá is a local favorite, and was even featured on ABC 7 Chicago News in a restaurant segment.
