A taste of Brasil in Santa Barbara

brasil arts cafe 002

A few months back I was reading a great article about a young couple who opened a Brazilian cafe on State street,  I knew immediately I wanted to give it a try, I love Brazilian food!  Dave and I decided to venture over last night and give it a whirl.  We loved it!  We were greeted by a very friendly girl working at the front counter.  We ordered the churrasco na chapa and the BAC salad. Both were insanely good.  The churrasco, which is charbroiled prime cut coulotte steak, and sausage, served with rice, beans, farofa and chimichurri sauce.  The salad was a mix of romaine lettuce, hearts of palm, Brazilian nuts, carrots, beets, cherry tomatoes, and red onions.  The flavors were delicious in both dishes.  Before our food came out, the owner did, Daniel Yoshimi, a great guy, who was super friendly and was great about letting us photograph his place.  He walked Dave to the back of the restaurant where there is a studio, which offers capoeira, which is a Brazilian martial arts, that combines elements of dance and music.  Below is the schedule for all of the classes offered.  The classes are for all ages, whoever wants to dance.  We absolutely loved this place, from the friendly service to the amazing food.  We will definitely be going back, and better yet, we live right around the corner.  Brasil Arts Cafe 1230 State street, Santa Barbara, CA 805-845-7656

Muito Bom!
