We are delighted to share our passion for Brazilian cuisine with you, and it is a true honor for us to offer you an unforgettable gastronomic and cultural experience. Savor and relish these two iconic Brazilian dishes that bring a wealth of history to your table.
FEIJOADA and FAROFA are two quintessential dishes of Brazilian cuisine that have become emblematic of the nation's culture. Both dishes are widely loved throughout the country and boast a rich history dating back to colonial times.
FEIJOADA is a flavorful dish comprising black beans cooked with various types of meat, including bacon, sausage, dried meat, and pork ribs. The dish is typically served with rice, butter-sautéed cabbage, orange, and farofa.
The feijoada recipe was introduced to Brazil by the Portuguese during the colonization period. Back then, feijoada was considered a luxurious dish reserved for special occasions such as parties and banquets.
Over time, feijoada gained popularity, particularly among slaves working on Brazilian coffee farms. These slaves only had access to the less desirable parts of the meat, like the fat and bones. To make the most of these ingredients, they developed the feijoada recipe we know today, enhancing it with sausage, bacon, and other flavorful components.
FAROFA, on the other hand, is a versatile side dish made of toasted cassava flour combined with butter, onion, and other ingredients such as bacon and olives. Farofa can be served with a variety of dishes, including barbecue, fish, and our beloved feijoada. Similar to feijoada, farofa has its origins in African culture. African slaves used cassava flour as a substitute for bread, which was less common in Brazil at the time. Over the years, cassava flour became a popular staple in Brazilian cuisine, and farofa emerged as a traditional side dish in numerous regions of the country.
Today, feijoada and farofa are cherished by Brazilians and served in restaurants worldwide. Together, these two dishes represent the rich history and culinary heritage of Brazil.
Additionally, enjoy our incredible assortment of salads and our exclusive barbecue, expertly prepared by our chefs. To complement your meal, indulge in a refreshing and delicious Caipirinha, one of Brazil's most popular drinks, or choose from our Premium Selection of Champagne, Fine Wines, Spirits, Beers, and Soft Drinks.

Think of Churrasco grills, juicy steaks rich in flavour with an addition of salad bar and buffet-style dishes which are all the legacy of indigenous people from South and Central America’s coastlines that are now carried on as far as Japan.
OVER THE YEARS, the restaurant got a lot of great reviews. So what are the people saying? It all starts with great and friendly service praise followed by mention of the lovely views that the outdoor terrace provides!
One of the strongest aspects alluded to is the flavourful and delicious meat. Absolutely not a coincidence, as the Chefts in Forgo Brazil have years of experience and knowledge of how to prepare for something unforgettable.
The restaurant is also often referred to as something different in a good way. That's why Forgo Brazil is bound to leave a lasting impression on anyone visiting Okinawa. And that grilled pineapple a lot of our customers rave about is a popular mention too, and yet again not by accident at all. Enjoy!
