In Brazil, a “boteco” is a low-key, stress-free bar where you can enjoy a cold beer and snacks. That’s exactly what Boteco Miami is for the Brazilian community in South Florida—it’s that welcoming bar just around the corner. Boteco Miami has been part of the community for over 10 years, offering the best in Brazilian food, drinks and culture.
Brazilians gather at Boteco for samba nights, futebol (aka soccer) matches and for their famous feijoada, a traditional dish made of beans, meats and accompaniments like farofa, sausage, fried bananas and collard greens. Feijoada is served buffet-style on weekends, with five different varieties of the dish to choose from. “We have ox-rib feijoada, the complete feijoada with dried beef, the famous pepperoni feijoada and a traditional one with beans. The sides include pork and beef loin, sausages, bacon bits, fried bananas and farofa. We also offer dessert and salads,” said Sueli Quintino Wise, who works as a server at the restaurant.
Boteco hosts special events all week long, and its menu includes popular dishes such as picanha (sirloin steak), meat and seafood skewers and typical appetizers such as pao de queijo (cheese bread), pastel and bolinho de bacalhau (fried codfish croquettes). Desserts include brigadeiro, a Brazilian-style fudge, and passion fruit mousse.
Come enjoy live music and the best caipirinha in town at Boteco.
