Vila Brasil

May 25, 2011

For  those of you heading over to the Leicester’s Summer Food Festival this coming Sunday, let me give you a little steer to visit my friend Eliene’s stall Vila Brasil.

She’ll be serving up quality Brazilian street food, including the national dish feijoida – a feisty black bean stew,  a fish stew with rice and delicacies like coxinhas – plump little pastries with chicken or fish fillings. Those of you on the recent Critical Mass bike ride may have enjoyed Eli’s food at the after party at the Crumbling Cookie and you’ll know how tasty it is. For the rest of you, it’s a treat in store.

Sadly I won’t be there as I’m off to Alsace for choucroute and a glass of gewurztraminer – but if you see her, have a chat, buy some food and say hi from Tim.



Here’s Elie’s stall at Leicester’s Riverside Festival on 3rd June. Watch out for her at other events over the summer.
