Feijoada - a hearty bean and meat feast - is Brazil's national dish, and no foodie worth their salt will want to leave Rio without having tried it. Traditionally served only on Saturdays, Casa da Feijoada is one spot where you can feast on this delicious stew every day of the week. Served with traditional sides such as fried 'couve' (spring greens), farofa (toasted and seasoned manioc flour) and a slice of orange 'to lower cholesterol', the feijoada itself combines all manner of cuts of meat slowcooked with beans, and is such a feast that Brazilians will usually eat it over the course of several hours, turning feiijoada-eating into a social event.
