Samba Taste of Brazil

922 Main Street

Hopkins



     •     Pastel 2.95 (shared)

     •     Feijoada Black bean stew with pork meat & sausages. Served with rice, farofa & collard greens $15.95


I really enjoyed Samba. We were there on a Sunday, so it was really quiet, I could imagine on the weekends it really hopping (hopefully). I started with on of the best drinks I have had in a long time the Samba. And the meal was just as good. I really enjoyed the bean dish, it was flavorful and fun to eat with all the additional toppings.


I would like to go back some weekend with out our son and perhaps enjoy it when it is a bit busier and more livelier.


     •     Bob— de Camar‹o Stewed shrimp with coconut milk, manioc puree, palm oil, onions, pepper, tomatoes & rice $18.95


Who would think that Main Street in Hopkins would host an authentic Brazilian restaurant? It's like Brazil meets Main Street USA. The Samba location itself is clean and neatly decorated with Brazilian art and cityscapes. The food is good, but not necessarily worth driving out of your way for. The flavors were very good, but I would have appreciated a few more shrimp in the entree.
