Brazilian

Caboco is LA’s first modern Brazilian restaurant, and chef Rodrigo Oliveira’s first location
outside of Brazil, located in the Arts District. Oliveira along with chef de cuisine, and partner
chef Victor Vasconcellos, serve the iconic boteco (pub) bite, torresmo (crackling), mocofava, a
hearty northeastern stew, cashew fruit moqueca, and grilled Amazonian fish driven by Brazilian
manioc root, tropical flavors, and sharp, fresh caipirinha cocktails. The dishes reflect national
Brazilian cuisine, with updated culinary traditions that respect the bold flavors of country
kitchens, above all. This is the Brazil you’ve never experienced in Los Angeles.

  • Feijoada Sundays

    $42.00 per person

    Multiple dates available
    Join us on Sundays only, for unlimited feijoada to share with friends and family. Feijoada, Brazil's national dish, owes its name to its main ingredient, black beans (feijão). It is a black bean stew brewed with a variety of salted and smoked pork and beef products. Feijoada is traditionally paired with rice, farofa, julienned collard greens, orange slices. It is a hart-warming dish that couldn't refrain from serving here at Caboco. Our feijoada is made with Rancho Gordo beans, in-house smoked meats and sausage, rice, torresmo, collard greens, farofa, yucca fries and orange slices. Plus a shot of batidinha (made of cachaça, fruit and sugar). A meatless feijoada will also be available! Price: $42.00 per person Kids (2-9 y/o) $19.00

    Let’s talk about the positives: -great service -water man kept bringing the water with out us asking - ambiance wasn’t bad, but nothing to have a girl say “wow” More of a casual place. -appetizers are okay Negatives -I can’t speak about other dishes as we only had the meat plate and it wasn’t the best. -A little overpriced A on effort tho

    I wish the meat and shrimp were cooked longer. The pork belly was very dry. The dessert also needed an extra kick. We felt the overall taste was a bit plain. The head waiter's service was fine in the beginning but towards the end of our meal, he seemed agitated. At one point, he threw our check on our table without even looking at us which made us feel very awkward.

    Dine LA Dinner Special, with choice of appetizer, entree, and dessert. $35 per person. Drinks extra. Street parking in the Arts District. Desserts decadent. Sorbet yummy. Salad choice light, crisp, refreshing, tasty. Tartare was a plentiful amount. Kids had tapioca “fries.” Potato purée flavor had to get some getting used to in the entrees, but good portion of food. We were stuffed!

    Fried tapioca was a winner. Crab gratin was undermined by yucca cracker which was too thick and hard. Ribeye special was good but a little over cooked for med rare. Pork shank entree was great, more fat than lean, but the pumpkin and corn cous cous sides paired well. Amazonian dessert was cool with bitter flower paired with chocolate mousse and caramel. Service was slow; took a long time for the entrees to come out and for the check.

    To be honest I didn't think the food, or the portions, justify the price tag. Some of the portions were ridiculously small and the price is certainly didn't reflect that even for "shared plates".

    It was great to come back and bring my cousin for her first time to Caboco especially after her first trip back from Brazil. LOVED our Karina Bonita drinks. I had mine with cachaca, my cousin enjoyed it with vodka substitute. I enjoyed having the Cuscuz Paulista again, my cousin not so much. Note, if you don't like sea urchin do not order. The Pupunha was excellent and tasty and healthy. The Peixe Grelhado was a delicious tender black cod and flavorful. We decided in lieu of having 2 starters, we would end our dining with 3 desserts! Caja Manga with caja sorbet, mango puree with baked coconut was light and sweet enough to satisfy, it was perfection! Pudim, had a smaller plate version than on my birthday 2 weeks prior, sweetly delicious and decadent with yummy cocoa crisp and drizzled cachaca caramel! Panacota with macadamia cream on the bottom with fresh fig jam and honeycomb on top was nice, but we were still figuring out the after taste and unexpected flavors. Overall, GRANT as always, was an excellent server, knowledgable, energetic and we were lucky to connect and say hello with the talented and kind Chefs, Rodrigo and Victor! Obrigado!!!

    We really enjoyed our meal here. The food is wonderful (definitely try the tapioca fries which are the most strangely delicious texture) and the linguica had a smoky flavor that was delicious. Cocktails were inventive and well-balanced. Service was incredibly friendly (almost too attentive..as soon as I took a sip of water someone was pouring me more!) Great spot if you are in the Arts District.

    Church sliced loin was hard to cut and not much flavor, yucca french fries not very crispy (doubt possible to achieve with yucca), roasted garlic too strong, chard and chiles were nice. All in all a mediocre but not unpleasant experience.
