It's like a vacation to Brazil. Boi na Brasa ("cow on the coals") is an authentic churrascaria located in Newark's Portuguese-speaking Ironbound, and the price alone makes it worth the trek. Skip the salad bar and go right for the meat, which comes with great black beans, rice, fried yuca and bananas, and french fries. Thrill to the salty caramelized surface of the picanha, the garlicky goodness of the chicken drumsticks, and the bone-in bloodiness of the quarter-pound short ribs. And muddle your senses with one of the strongest caipirinhas around.
