Here is the yelp review

I admit it -- I'm a wretched snob. I judge based on looks and make a snap decision in under a minute. Brasilianville Cafe & Grill with its nondescript awning just wasn't cutting it. I barely skimmed a glanced at it before relegating it into the category of "Places whose Threshold I Shall Never Cross." Besides, it was a buffet and with the exception of a couple things, I'm not a buffet girl. Buffets conjure up too many memories of bad food sitting out. And you have to serve yourself. I like having people wait on me. That's how I roll.

But after reading rave reviews from Suanne L, Lara G., and Jeff O., I had to reconsider. Perhaps, I might be *gasp* wrong???? The earth just shifted its axis in shock.

Let me tell you how WRONG I was. I ate there three times in one week. And I would have gone there more often if I hadn't been staying at work really late.

Yes, it's a buffet, but I swear that you've never had buffet food this GOOD because it's GREAT food. Period. Not great buffet food, but GREAT FOOD. They have a wide selection that changes every day. They always have rice and beans, some different kinds of chicken, some kind of spare ribs, and some different kinds of beef, and a salad bar. No matter what they have, the food is always phenomenal. I can't remember everything I ate, and sometimes I didn't know what I ate, but it was always really really good. The chicken was fork tender (we didn't need a knife to cut it). The brisket was delicious (I loved the gravy). The Brasilian chicken pot pie was incredible (I couldn't identify everything in it, but who cares, when it was sooo good and melted in your mouth). The corn bread was sweet and was more like the sweet moist Mexican cornbread than the dry American bread-like version.



I had an event that I was running and needed it to be catered. We didn't have a large budget, but I needed to feed a reasonable crowd for a low price and that's when I thought Brasilianville would come through. They were willing to work with me and let me come a half hour before they opened to pick up the food (they even got the cashier to come in early just for me).



I got a little bit of everything because I wasn't sure what the students were willing to eat. The students never had Brasilian food before and they were highly suspicious of it, but they had been well-trained to "just take a little bit to try it." With much trepidation everyone took one or two bites of everything. After they took one bite, they leaped out of their seats to get more. Like me, they were converted to the glory that the Brasilianville Cafe.


You pay by weight, but honestly the prices are really reasonable and cheap considering how much food and great meat you get. $15 was enough for two meals for me (YMMV). This isn't a fancy place nor is it haute cuisine, but it is just really wonderful down home comfort food of Brasilian descent. The first time I was there, a regular greeted cheerfully and said that he had been brought there at first by a Brasilian friend of his and they had been going to Brasilianville Cafe for years.

You rock my socks, Brasilianville. Why leave Astoria, when the world is here in my own little neighborhood?
