Side dishes: Food lovers enjoy side dishes which are special orders. Asparagus, creamed corn, sautéed spinach, Hand cut fries, Collard greens, Fried banana, Fejioa Tropeiro, Faro fa, Sautéed Mushrooms. Grilled Cheese, and of course Mashed Potatoes.

Deserts: Rodrigo our waiter, served us the Executive Chef's favorite, his own cheesecake and chocolate mousse. Delightful to say the least. The desert popular in Brazil, which is prepared by Chef Eddie in his style, is the Banana Flambé for two. It consist of a huge scoop of Vanilla ice cream, with pineapple and strawberries and fused gramnamie with bananas in a Martini glass. Frankly speaking, that's enough for four people.
