Admirers of Brazil's iconic feijoada (black bean and pork stew served with rice) needn't wait until Saturday, the time it's traditionally eaten, to experience this meaty meal. The casual Casa da Feijoada serves the rich black-bean and salted-pork dish every day of the week.

It comes with the requisite orange slices, farofa (garnish of manioc flour sautéed with butter) and grated kale (cabbage), and goes nicely with a caipirinha.
