Shops I Like

People keep asking me where they can find Brazilian ingredients and produce in London,  so here is a guide of places I like to shop for Brazilian ingredients.  Some are local to me and some are not. I don’t only cook Brazilian food so I thought I would mention a couple of shops I like too.

All over London
Lisboa Delicatessen – Long establish and traditional deli selling Portuguese and Brazilian products can be found in the 4 shops in London. From salted cod to spices to fresh or cured meat.  Here you find all the meats for feijoada among other ingredients.

My local shops in Brixton

This friendly shop is situated around the corner from the colourful Brixton tube station –  Smooth Radio Love London Awards 2010. They close the whole of August every year for summer holiday.  I wish I could do the same!

    Ah- yet one more reason to get to London… shopping for Brazilian products. For the time being, I'm stuck in St. Louis, MO. Alas, I'll visit the asian shop to seek these exotic ingredients. Thanks for the 411!
