Brazilian fare varies greatly by region, unlike Twinkies, which are life's one eternal constant. Dine on diverse flavors with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a Sunday brunch for two at Sinhá (a $60 value). Brunch seating is available at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.
The Brazilian-born owner of Sinhá, Jorgina Pereira, prepares Brazilian homestyle favorites with an artistic twist, which has garnered praise from ABC7's Hungry Hound Steve Dolinsky. On Sundays, an all-you-can-eat brunch buffet indulges bottomless appetites with international dishes including quick-fried plantains and farofa, a grainy cassava meal sautéed with olives, onions, carrots, and raisins. Batches of Brazilian-style black beans pair perfectly with beef and pork, and basmati rice in vegetarian broth compete for taste bud attention with thinly sliced collard greens in olive oil. Specialty chicken-, beef-, and seafood-based dishes quell carnivorous cravings and come flavored with a variety of hot sauces and chutneys, like trees in the rain forest. After devouring buffet main courses, patrons indulge in the dulcet tones of desserts and brazilian coffee.
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.
