Best Brazilian Carryout (2008)

CANTINA DE LINA

The motherly chef at CANTINA DE LINA has been all around the block, restaurant-wise, in the last few years, now locating to a miniature storefront just off Astoria's main drag. The place is so small, she only concocts a couple of Cariocan specialties per day (Saturday: feijoada, Tuesday: chicken with okra), though fritter-type snacks are always available.
