Rice X Beans - Woodside
The most basic Brazilian dish is elevated and becomes the main star at Rice’X Beans. These two ingredientes have their flavors enhanced with techniques that come from the Brazilian countryside.
Great to have another location that happens to be convenient for me. Much bigger place than Manhattan and just as good. Can accommodate bigger parties (like 12). There's a bar for those who need a drink, like my sis.
Went on a Saturday night but the place was empty. Ordered frozen margarita which the waitress/bartender said no can do. Ordered whiskey sour, she said she will try to make it and when I tasted the drink, it was so bad. She noticed I wasnt drinking it so she took it off the bill. The food we ordered was good. It was my very first Brazilian restaurant, I might try a different legit restaurant next time.
This is a lovely neighborhood-family restaurant with great food, friendly service and excellent value. Definitely a keeper.
