Yemanja Brasil Takes to the Streets: Launches Brazil Express

Yemanja Brasil Restaurante’s authentic Brazilian cuisine has gone mobile.

The Benton Park eatery debuted its new food truck, Brazil Express, about a month ago. The tropical-looking truck made its first major appearance at the Labor of Love Music Festival on Art Hill on July 28.

“It is a way to bring the taste of Brazil to the public and hopefully increase awareness of Yemanja Brasil Restaurant,” says owner Lemya Sidki.

The menu will feature a slew of ethnic eats such as empanadas, kabobs and traditional dishes like Feijoada de Ogum—black beans stewed with beef, sausage and pork ribs, served over rice—and Frango Rosé—chicken, mushrooms and corn in a rosa cream sauce over rice and topped with potato fries.
