Default Any Brazilians in Austin?

Is there a decent Brazilian population in Austin? Where can I find them? Are there any Portuguese-speaking churches or groups around town? Any Brazilian or Portuguese restaraunts?
Thanks in advance!

Default Sampaio's Brazilian Restaurant

We went to Sampaio's Restaurant on Burnet a few weeks back - had a very enjoyable dinner there!

Here is some info from Rob Balon's blog on a Brazilian place that just opened:

"Estancia Churrascaria

No sooner had we mentioned the imminent arrival of monster Brazilian meat emporium Fogo de Chao than up sprang Estancia Churrascaria on Highway 290 in Sunset Valley (next to the Holiday Inn Express) which opened on Monday, March 26th. Go figure. Estancia is managed by Fogo alumni and the place just exudes great tastes and aromas. The Pichana (top sirloin) was amazing as was the chicken and the sausage. The place is small and they're going to have to do a huge volume to make it at the price points they're at. But I'll certainly be back.

The owners are Ironi and Adriana and they're a very sweet couple. I wish them well. 892-1225."

Also, Fogo de Chao (a chain, but good!) opens downtown later this year.

However, take Rob Balon's reviews with a grain of salt. I've heard that he solicits payment from restaurants for a review. That's why you'll never see any bad reviews other than national chains on his website. Also, legit critics don't publicize their image so they can dine anonymously without special treatment. Not him.

Plus, he uses the word "ethereal" way to often to be taken seriously.

There's a very decent-sized Brazilian population in Austin (see my screen name for proof!) spread out all over the city. There are a few Brazilian stores in town, and the Brazil Center at UT hosts various events while classes are in session, including a bate-papo on Fridays from 3:30-4:30 at the Cactus Cafe. Brazilian food can be found in Austin, but Portuguese food... that's another story. I have to make all my pasteis de nata at home...
