Reviews for Brazil Cafe

Definitely a must try place in Berkeley. I've been coming here for the past ten years and I have yet to find a better tri tip in the Bay Area. The only dishes I ever get are the tri tip sandwich, the tri tip salad, and the tri tip plate. Their tri tip is amazing.

On a rainy Friday afternoon, I had lunch at Brazil Café. It was my first time and I was a bit nervous as Brazilian places are often heavy on the meat. Not many options for those of us who do not eat meat. But, luckily they offered a veggie rice bowl. It was flavorful, spicy, outstanding and a huge portion. The bowl had an array of veggies, onions, avocado, etc. I wasn't happy about the price $12 (thus the 4 stars). However, I will admit it was a lot of food. The full review
This is a popular, classic Berkeley joint--they have 3 locations (2 sit-down restaurants and one stand right by campus) which is telling of their success. Meat lovers, unite! Their tri-tip is what you have to go for. My friend and I discovered this place our freshman year after getting sucked into free samples. The owner was super friendly and convincing. More importantly, the beef was at once springy and juicy, super flavorful with that delicious cilantro sauce. Since then, full review
