You'll love the foods mentioned above. Great deserts, my husband loves the beer and fruit drinks. The grilled salmon is always a good choice.

I don't know much about Brazilian food, so keep that in mind. My steaks were overcooked a bit, one was seasoned very well and amazing, the other was completely unseasoned. My friends enjoyed their food.

I love Brazilian food, not the big-meat-on-a-stick places, but the real stuff, what is served in Brazil at home. Just go to Emporio Brazilian Cafe, and you will not be disappointed. Awesome fish stew, great Fejioada, nice steak, that all in an unpretentious nice atmosphere.

It is real Brazilian food. It is a casual family friendly place. Customers are mainly Brazilian. Serves bobo, muqueca, feijoada, strogonoff, etc. As starts they have pastel and pao de queijo. Our favorite dessert is passion fruit mousse. Also they serve caipirinhas there.

The place is a good option for the brazilian community in Houston to gather and have some of the traditional Brazilian food. I'd not qualify the place as being a must-go but it serves its purpose.
