Favela Grill

3318 28th Ave. Long Island City, NY 11103 | Astoria | 718-545-8250

Location Description:

You can't beat "costela Bam-Bam," a gigundo beef rib cooked over charcoal, blood red in the middle. Smear on the chile relish and sprinkle with toasty farofa!

The Bahian standard moqueca is rendered here with admirable fidelity-crammed with seafood, tinged with red dende oil, and sided with a jiggy pudding. You can't beat Favela for bar snacks, either: Pick the sundried beef jerky called carne de sol ("meat of the sun").
