  Dish at La Cantina
by Muya

Typical brasilian atmosphere in this nice little restaurant of the Saint Géry district. It might be difficult to find it, it is located on top of a bar...
We took the menu of the day for 21 euros, so we could taste different specialties, as for many of us, it was the first time we ever tried this type of food. And we all enjoyed it very much !
Closed on Sunday
Thanks bigjones for the infos on the menu, I couldn't remember everything :-)

Favorite Dish: A caipirinha as aperitif, then a "Salada com salgadinhos" (salad made of Brazilian croquettes, cooked plantain bananas and palm hearts) and pao de queso (cheese bread). This is the part I most liked I think :-) Then we had the three main courses : Pernil ao mel picante (ham with spicy honey and vegetables), Muqueca de peixe ou frutos do mar (fish and sea food in cocomilk, palm oil, tomatoes, onions and peppers) and the famous the "Feijoada", the national dish (red beans, pork meat, smoked bacon, spicy sausages with oranges and sauce), yummy !!
All this was served with rice and farofa (manioc). And as desert, we had ice cream with guava sirup and mangos.
